Modern Rifle Chassis are designed with lightness and modularity in mind. Companies such as MDT, KRG, and Mcmillan offer a change of pace for shooters with out of the box stock rifles.
Choosing the right stock is important for precision bolt action shooters. A heavy, sturdy, chassis will be the difference between a hit, and a round in the dirt. Think of the chassis as the skeleton of the rifle. Without a strong skeleton, the body breaks down and weakens. Bolt action chassis also allow for more accessories to be mounted as precision chassis offer the picatanny and Mlok space that basic scout rifle stocks do not.
