BEST $1,000 CHASSIS OF 2022?

NEW from Daniel Defense comes the R700 Pro Chassis System for short action Remington 700 footprint rifles!

The same chassis used for the Daniel Defense Delta 5 Pro, but now fitting all R700 footprint rifles, this is a welcome addition to the chassis market.

The Pro Chassis System is a drop-in replacement chassis for any R700 footprint rifle. Designed for long range competition, the chassis has a list of features such as adjustable thumb rest, integral ARCA Rail, and user-adjustable buttstock.

The full-length ARCA rail is machined into the forend giving you lots of room to work with. On the underside of the forend are M-LOK slots in case you have M-LOK attaching accessories like bipods.

A fully adjustable buttstock allows for length of pull and cheek rest adjustment to match your shooting style and stance. It even allows for height and yaw adjustment. This toolless design is easy to adjust in the field if needed.

The forend also features a scalloped cut front end allowing for a lower height-over-bore even for scopes with large objective lenses. 

Currently, the chassis is offered in three colors, black, coyote tan, and olive drab. MSRP is $1,020 for the black and $1,196 for the coyote and olive drab.
