Bald Knob, AR – Choate Machine and Tool, a market leading designer, manufacturer and OEM supplier of rifle stocks, shotgun magazine extensions and firearms accessories, has introduced The Choate Modular Stock (C. Mod) chassis system.
This is a true modular rifle stock, allowing the user to change the forend or butt stock without removing the rifle action from the main chassis section. This modularity provides the ultimate in adaptability and versatility while not disturbing the critical action-to-stock fit so reconfirming zero is unnecessary after configuring the system as needed.
The heart of the C. Mod rifle stock system is the precision CNC machined chassis. Made from a solid block of aluminum, the chassis rigidly holds the action while the desired butt stock and forend can be changed as needed.
The chassis uses the time-tested AR style magazine release. This eliminates accidentally dropping the magazine by hitting a release lever located in front of the trigger guard. The C Mod. magazine will accept cartridges up to 2.860 inches in length such as the 308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor and 260 Remington, as well as other popular cartridges like 6mm Remington, 257 Roberts and 7X57 Mauser. Each C. Mod chassis comes with two magazines and the required action screws.
The ultimate in versatility is provided by the C. Mod Stock system of optional forends and butt stocks. Forends include a target/varmint style forend with a wide, flat bottom and a sniper/tactical style forend that is shorter and slightly tapered toward the muzzle end.
Both come with a T-rail and bipod adapter. Butt stocks included two conventional types including a basic tactical style, a fully customizable target/tactical style with adjustable check piece and length-of-pull. Choate also offers two very specialized butt stocks for the C. Mod Rifle Stock including a telescoping AR style butt stock (compatible with any AR butt stock) and a pistol grip folding stock for the ultimate in portability. All butt stocks and forends come with the required hardware for rock solid installation.
The new Choate Modular stock is available for the Remington 700 short action and Remington Model 7. MSRP is $710 and includes the CNC machined chassis anodized matted black, the tactical forend and the tactical butt stock both also in matte black and two magazines.
