    I have a Howa Mini Action in one and it is a good solid budget chassis. I bought mine when they just started making them and have not had an issue with it. It is a bit on the heavy side and MDT has been coming out with accessories for it, but it is still some what of a minimalist chassis in what you can add to it.

    It’s an improvement over what you have but imo there’s too many better options available.

    The Oryx is a great chassis for the money. Are there better? Sure for 2 or 3 times the price.
    Get it. You'll be happy.

    For the money, nothing better in my opinion. Only gripe, no place for a QD sling mount up front.

    I'm looking to buy one of these for a HOWA 1500 Short Action but I'm having trouble finding one for a good deal. I see where some other people have posted buying these for as low as $299 but everything I'm finding is $399? How much are these really selling for?

    Thanks,

    I have a Savage in one and a Tikka T1x in one. Both rifles shoot much better in the Oryx than they did in the factory tupperware. It's a bit heavy (if that matters to you) and very rigid. The ergos really work for me, especially with a vertical grip (MDT adjustable or Anarchy Outdoors Tuxedo). I've got no complaints with mine.

    My factory Savage went for shooting about 1.2 moa to .6 moa when I put it in an Oryx chasis.
    BTW, I've never seen them for $299. But I think they are a deal at $400.

    I will not name action, barrel, and stock, but all top of everyone's list here. 6.5 CM.

    Barreled action group size cut in half going from a $1,200 stock/chassis to the Oryx.

    Did not believe it myself so made the switch again with the same results.

    Do not underestimate the Oryx.

    After careful thought, I believe the straight back design of the Oryx aids in managing recoil.

    Thanks,

    Sign up on MDT's and Oryx's websites for sales on there items. They also have every now and then, blemish sales on there chassis. It's the best way to get good stuff cheap. ;)

    Excellent info. I have a factory Savage and have been looking to throw it in the Oryx. Much appreciated!

    I have a Savage model 12 LVP that I mounted into an Oryx. Definitely a great bang for the buck, I was eyeing out a KRG Alpha 180 but I didn’t want to put a bunch of $ into the Savage. Glad I went with the Oryx, it’s rigid and I like the grip angle. No problems feeding from AICS mags, and it’s a hell of a lot better than the factory laminated wood stock. If you get the Oryx pick up an extra set of butt spacers, I ended up adding 2 spacers to get the LOP perfect for me.

    That’s a good bit of information for sure. I appreciate that. If you don’t mind, how tall are you? I’m 5’10.
