Glad to see this thread, after shooting a buddy's Tikka Competition, this will probably be my next rifle I use in local club matches.

    Id be glad to flaunt it if you can talk to the guys in production and get me moved up the list! :D

    It's worth the wait, IMHO. I'm loving the crap out of my Strike Lite Chassis build! The adjust-ability of fit is very good, fit to the action and overall quality are worth waiting for.

    Love the looks of the chassis! I've done some searching, but couldn't find the answer I was looking for. Does anyone know the length of the rail on the competition chassis?

    So I have my Field Comp ordered and I was wondering if anyone has attached a QD camera plate to theirs for a tripod setup?

    Lite Strike chassis, Stiller action 24" heavy Palma barrel by Pac-Nor, X-treme Trigger, lots of CeraKote in both FDE and desert sand. Only 126 rounds through it currently, but really enjoying the whole system.

    My cousin ordered a long action chassis and waited 8 weeks only for them to send him a short action. So now he is waiting on a reply to see if he has to go to the end of the line for them to fix their fuck up. If so, hes cancelling and getting an AX chassis.

    Madppcs, I would like to know the name of your cousin and the name of the dealer, please message me. I handle the US and I am not aware of any such case, if such a case did happen I would be the first to know.

    Was on Cadex's website checking out the new Kraken and damn if that isn't a well thought out multi caliber system.

    Is that a little picatinny rail section I see right in front of the magazine? If so that's perfect for a tripod adapter or to mount a bipod to shoot off a short surface.

    There is a space in front of the mag well to attach a rail for mounting the rifle on a tripod on the Strike Lite, as well as just about any other place that you would want to mount a rail segment to the forend.

    I watched the Kracken video the other day and it looks like one of the most complex barrel change systems I've ever seen??? There rifle do look cool and futuristic! The bipod in franks video is really aggressive looking and looks similar to the 5H in some ways. I wonder what it weighs?

    Great looking rifles guys. I love my Cadex/Stiller build more and more every time that I get behind it. Hopefully I will have more pics to add in the next week or two, if a new digi cam arrives.

    Hi guys...I'm looking for some insight and suggestions here. I'd like to buy a multi-caliber system and have been doing some research on the idea. The problem I have (besides the huge price tag) is which system to go with. I've looked at the AI MC as well as the Cadex Kraken. I'm leaning towards the Kraken only because of the multiple calibers you can go with and the price is a little less than an AI. I'm finding if difficult to research the Kraken system because it's so new. Does anyone have some suggestions or experiences with this company? I would like to know what the shift in POI is when changing out the barrels.

    These are my personal experiences in dealing with Cadex. Prior to making the plunge to purchase my chassis, I called Cadex with several detailed questions, that were answered quickly and very professionally with each call, even when calling late in the day on a Friday there was no rush to get off the phone and on to the weekend.
    I had my action chambered and fitted with the barrel by Pac-Nor, so that I was able to assemble the rifle myself. It was the first bolt gun that I assembled on my own, the quality of the instructions were solid and the fit and finish of the chassis were outstanding, which made the assembly of the rifle, very easy.

    While I did not buy the Kraken, I only picked up a Lite Strike Chassis, I have to say that the costumer service that I have received up to this point has been excellent, and on par with other very high end items that I use and abuse from other industries. If I were in the market for a MC rifle, I would not hesitate to take a serious look at the Kraken as I feel that the support would be there to back the purchase, based on my experiences so far with Cadex.

    How can you get them in Australia? I checked the dealer list and one is charging three times Canada prices and has no stock and the other one does not deal direct.

    Thank you sir. I appreciate the answer. I hear a lot of good things about Cadex. I'd love to get my hands on one before I buy it. Thanks again
