Sharps Bros published a video on their social media pages, where John Sharps, the owner of the company, shows the prototype of an upcoming new product – the Heatseeker aluminum chassis for Howa 1500 Mini Action barreled actions. Let’s see what unique features Sharps Bros brings to the market of bolt action rifle chassis.
The Heatseeker chassis is compatible with AR-15 grips, buffer tubes and stocks. One of the key features of this chassis is that when the barreled action is installed, the bore axis is in-line with the stock axis and the bolt runs in-line with the buffer tube axis, not over it. That allows using standard AR-15 stocks without a need for a cheek riser. Another interesting design solution is that the Heatseeker is compatible with SIG Sauer MPX handguards that are attached to the chassis via an HK G3/MP5 lower/handguard pin (the small HK pin). To learn more about the features of the Heatseeker chassis watch the mentioned Sharps Bros video which you can find embedded below.
