Dolphin Gun Company is a precision rifles and accessories manufacturer located in the United Kingdom. If you do a little research, you’ll find out that the products of this company are quite popular among European long range and competition shooters and have a reputation for being high quality and precision made ones in general. In this article, we’ll take a look at one of the latest offerings of the company – the Tactical Rifle Stock.
The Dolphin tactical chassis is machined out of billet 6000-series aluminum. The company offers a number of finish options such as anodizing, Cerakote or fine bead blasting. The chassis is available for multiple calibers and action lengths up to .338 Lapua Magnum. Particularly, it is available for the following barrelled actions: Remington 700 SA and LA, Barnard S, SM and P, Nesika Model T, KT, MT, K and M, RPA Quadlite and Quadlock, Remington model 40-X and Savage Model 12. The Dolphin Gun Company tactical rifle chassis is user installable without a need of having any special tools or advanced gunsmithing skills.
The stock of this chassis is fully adjustable. The length of pull can be adjusted from 12-3/4″ to 15-3/4″. The buttpad and cheek rest heights are also adjustable. The company makes both folding and non-folding versions of the stock. The folding version is compatible with AR-15 receiver extensions. The stock also features a folding and adjustable monopod. The grip of this chassis is compatible with that of the AR-15 platform. It is mounted on a separate part which can be moved parallel to the bore axis by about 3/4″ allowing to adjust the position of the pistol grip.
The Dolphin tactical chassis is fed from AICS pattern magazines. The forearm is detachable. It features M-LOK accessory mounting slots at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions. The slots between the mentioned positions are cut for decreasing the weight of the handguard.
The Dolphin Gun Company tactical chassis is sold in the UK at a price range of about £640 to £950 including the VAT. Unfortunately, they do not export it to the USA yet. According to Mik Maksimovic, the founder and owner of the company, the export license price is too high and will pretty much make the price of this chassis uncompetitive compared to similar products available in the USA.
