Christensen Arms has announced that the chassis of their Modern Precision Rifle is now available separately. It is the company’s entry into the bolt action rifle chassis market. Their press release quotes Jason Christensen, President of Christensen Arms, who said: “Ever since we launched the Modern Precision Rifle, an independent chassis has been one of the most common requests we receive. We’re pleased to expand the platform“.

The Modern Precision Rifle Chassis is compatible with Remington 700 footprint long or short action barreled actions. It has a V-block bedding system. It is designed to be as lightweight as practically possible. Thanks to the use of aluminum, skeletonized stock and carbon fiber handguards, the chassis weighs no more than 3.5 lbs (3.3 to 3.5 lbs).

This chassis also features a carbon fiber cheekpiece that can be adjusted by one inch. The length of pull is also adjustable (12.5″-14.5″). The stock can be folded to the right side of the chassis where it is retained by the built-in MAGNELOCK system which “is designed for ease of use, with a smooth release button and a powerful magnet instead of a cumbersome clasp“. The carbon fiber handguard allows to free-float the barrel. The handguards come in 14″ or 17” length options and feature M-LOK slots on sides and the bottom.

The Modern Precision Rifle Chassis is machined out of 7075 billet aluminum and has a hard coat anodized finish available in black or Desert Brown color options. It is compatible with AICS pattern detachable box magazines and AR-15 pistol grips. There are also six built-in QD sockets on this chassis.

Here is also a video that the company published along with the press release.

The MSRP of Christensen Arms Modern Precision Rifle Chassis is $1,095. When ordering the chassis you need to specify the action length (short or long), carbon fiber handguard length (14″ or 17″) and the anodizing color (black or Desert Brown). The chassis ships assembled.

    "Chassis all the things!"

    I'm not a fan of this one (more of an MDT guy), but I even put a Ruger Charger Takedown in a chassis. So clearly, I'm one of those fools who will part with their money for almost anything. Except Glocks.

    $1100 bucks for this? Why exactly does it cost so much? You can get an entire rifle for what this costs.

    What is the deal with that ugly hand guard? Ditch it and just add a piece of aluminum to the front of the chassis for an attachment point for the bipod. The handguard is unnecessary unless you are planning on making a hunting build. It is certainly light enough for that--but probably too light for a precision long range rifle.

      @Marcus D. The idea is not strictly long range.
