    MDT and DPT rifle chassis

    What type of stocks do you prefer and do you need or use a cheek riser using any chassis system?

    Yip the XLR stock looks quite trick but at this time I prefer the AR telescopic type for flexibility although I have not tried it yet with maybe a Magpul cheek riser.

    No Idea if the XLR stock is readily available here.

    Have played with an MDT, dunno which model, and was surprised how heavy it all was (223 rem700). Weighed a ton, seemed to have a chunk more mass than the only DPT one I fingerbanged, which was bare (@beaker's, DPT number 0001). If I had to buy one or the other based on that, I'd buy DPT as he is a forum sponsor

    They dont do the Ruger (DPT), contacted them several times with no apparent interest in making one so I went to who do, I also purchased one for my Remington LTR .308 might as well, two sales lost to DPT !

    I also preferred the Brownell's FDE finish and the M-Loc forend design, just my opinion.

    I have an MDT HS3 chassis on a long range hunting rifle I use. I like it, very accurate but agreed on the heavier side. Have just brought a HS precision stock so will try it in that too. What action are you using?

    Ruger American Ranch and Remington LTR, I like shorter stocks and find the HS Precision stock on the LTR a bit long I cut 1" off the RAR stock.

    Dead eyed Dicks in Levin used to do the XLR chassis. Not sure if they still do, but could be worth hitting them up.
    I got one of the XLR Carbon chassis, with the tactical butt stock. Very nice piece of kit.

    And to answer the OP's question - 100% use the cheek riser, as well as the length of pull adjustment. It just makes it easier to get a good sight picture through the scope really fast.

    No I haven't but think I will, it's the hunter chassis, so just a neoprene covered tube

    Unfortunately we are not selling enough chassis at this stage to invest more money developing them to suit other actions, its an extremely costly exercise to design them for each action, a cost that at this stage we are unlikely to recover.

    Hi guys, also take a look at the Oryx chassis: https://oryxchassis.com. This is a good budget option.
    We do also make the MDT LSS, LSS-XL, ESS and even the MDT ACC for Howa!
