The somewhat Austin-based mag makers at Magpul have dropped a new product: the Pro 700 Rifle ChassisThe company claims the 5.4 lbs. M-LOK-equipped American-made full billet aluminum skeleton chassis is  “the most comprehensive available precision rifle platform solution for true out of the box performance.” (Full description and specs below.) Reversible for devil-handed shooters. $999.95. Want one?

The Magpul Pro 700 Rifle Chassis is an uncompromising, full featured precision rifle chassis for short action Remington® 700 actions and other Remington® 700 footprint actions. The Pro 700 combines innovative engineering, precision machining, Mil-Spec quality finishes, and an extensive list of purposeful design features with complete adjustability to provide demanding end users with the most comprehensive available precision rifle platform solution for true out of the box performance.

 

Based on a full billet aluminum skeleton and clad in Magpul polymer for environmental comfort, noise mitigation, and ergonomics, the Pro 700 is also fully ambidextrous. Capable of fitting both right and left-handed actions with the simple swap of a bolt-cutout plate, and with a reversible cheek riser and reversible hinge on the folding version, “lefties” haven’t been “left out.”

    Very nice and very expensive.

      A thousand bucks to turn a barreled action into a precision rifle doesn’t seem out of line to me.

    2. avatar Steve says:

      It’s an American AICS chassis – what do you expect? If they need to reduce the price they can, but it’s a lot more difficult as a company to raise the price if you start too low.

  2. avatar AlanInFL says:

    Hey, another option for AI based magazine rifle stock. I wished they will make one for the long heavy magnum action 700s. They are going after the AICS chassis competition marketplace.

    A cool grand for a stock. Yes, I want one. Who wouldn’t. But I’m not worthy. I’m more likely to spend just a little more and get a Ruger RPS, which can shoot better than I can right out of the box and it’s a whole rifle.

    But I do love me some Magpul.

    1. avatar ChainsawWieldingManiac says:

      I like how it looks, too, and it does have a nice feature set. If Remington ever introduced a 700 with reversible ejection/handle bolt, that would be a very compelling reason for some people to go for this rifle. As it is, I guess it’s competing in the same space that AI is… high-end custom bolt guns, which is not a very big market. I would have said they’re going for military contracts, but this chassis directly competes with Remington’s offering in that area. Maybe they think another custom rifle builder will step up to the plate for that?

      As a base for future offerings, it’s also pretty neat. I would love to see a cheaper, non-reinforced version of this chassis for the Mossberg MVP and Ruger American bolt guns, both of which don’t have many options in this realm.

    Nice and light but I’ll stick with my A5 from Macmillan.

    1. avatar jwtaylor says:

      Wise choice.

  5. avatar TP says:

    WOW! Very nice. Me likey.

  6. avatar Rabbi says:

    Looks very nice. I would definitely buy, but my next build is a long action.

    1. avatar Cabron says:

      What caliber? I am thinking about one in 6.5×55.

  7. avatar Defens says:

    I like it, too. Would make a great upgrade from the H-S Precision stocks I’m running now. Do they make a bump stock version? (/kidding…)

  8. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    This would mean having to buy a Remington…,
    So, nope.
    Besides, I just picked up a Winchester varminter in 22-250.
    Mint with scope, dies, brass and projos for $450.

    1. avatar jwtaylor says:

      Load that 22-250 heavy for the caliber and it proves to be an excellent west Texas sheep cartridge.

  9. avatar ogradey says:

    My 700 308 drills 5 holes that touch now. It may be nice, but I do not want to screw with perfection.

  10. avatar Ansel Hazen says:

    As a “devil handed shooter” I um…. find the label rather satisfying. 🙂
