This just might be the perfect hunting chassis for my Tikka Lite! Are there any pictures of the forend with the integrated arca or the Cobalt green version of the chassis? And is the LOP the same on both the folding and non-folding variants?
New pictures will be coming as we get closer to shipping but yes, the LOP is the same on folding and non folding!

Very intrigued by this and the shorter LOP. Small hands and short arms normally means stretching on my hunting gun.

Wished the forehand would be flat to the magwell without the taper .

will the arca rail will be an attachment in magnesium or it will be a full magnesium forehand?

Element 3.0 MG and the HNT26 will be nice for NRL hunter class.

Well I finally found the chassis I want for my shorty rifle build. Now to decide if I preorder or wait until they are out in the wild.

Very cool, Kyle.

I don't see it mentioned in the features but it looks like it has a vertically adjustable comb....true?

Yes, it sure does!

Element 3.0 MG and the HNT26 will be nice for NRL hunter class.

ARCA rail on the forend will be part of the carbon fiber; magnesium is only used for the chassis body.

What’s the cobalt green look like?

We will get some pictures up soon; it is a very nice color, think green with a blueish hue to it.

Can you please include the Sauer STR/SSG3000 to the action list?
There are thousands of rifles in Europe just waiting for a lightweight chassis.

I also recomend adapting this chassis to the Blaser R8 and charge $3995. It's still cheaper than Blaser's own carbon stocks.. 😎

    Nice, I'm still shopping for chassis for my tikka t3 hunting rig but this is out of my budget.
    Have you seen our XRS chassis? It isn't as light, however, I hunted with my Tikka in one this year and it was great!

    Good question and the STR/SSG3k is not on the list currently, however, you can always request new inlets here: MDT Product Request Form
    Looks great! Any plans for left handed configurations?
    Not yet unfortunately :( Depending on the level of requests, it's something that we could look at in the future!
    Will there be different length fore ends available in the future? I personally would like to see something a little longer. Of course that would add some weight
    There are currently no plans for other forend options other than the standard and RRS dovetail compatible options, however, that may be a product idea in the future too!

    Thanks for your interest/excitement guys!

    Mdt xrs is a solid chassis, my 22 creed sits in one. 22" carbon barrel, nx8 weighs 10# as that chassis is 5#. The grayboe Phoenix is now being cut for Tikka, just an option. Not a chassis but a very versatile adj stock at 32oz.

    3 things:
    1. Pix of the green? =D
    2. Pix of the integrated ARCA? (Also, thank you for finally having ARCA integrated into a carbon fiber forend)
    3. The “compatibility” section on the webpage says “CIP 3.50” instead of “CIP 3.850” (iOS 14.4 safari browser)

    Dang! That’s lighter than my vortex razor. I mean I guess that isn’t saying much but that’s light for a chassis
    This makes it the second-lightest adjustable-cheek stock equivalent on the market. The All-Composites A5 Adjustable is 24oz (if it still exists anywhere; I can’t find it anymore).

    This takes the crown from the XLR Element 3.0 Magnesium/Carbon by 2oz.

    Any plans for a LA in the low profile magazine ?

    Same question.

    This stock looks great, be nice to use it for a 7 saum build on a long action for 180s poking way out there... But it would need a flush long action magazine.

    Wonder if one of the long action shorty magazines from Curtis would work, or of MDT has a flush long action mag in the works?

    Pretty certain aics cip la 3.85 mags are the dbm format. If my plan was a saum/wsm. A Tikka LA chassis with the mdt 3.54/3.46 internal mag would be perfect. They have 5 rounders, I also have a guy who will mod a 5 to a 3rd that fits pretty low profile in the mag well.
