American Built Arms Mod*X Chassis

posted on January 22, 2015

I had the opportunity last night to meet with the folks from American Built Arms. We've covered several of the company's items on "Across the Editor's Desk," and they're coming out with something new and exciting:

This is the Mod*X Modular Chassis for the Remington Model 700 bolt-action rifle. It features a Luth-AR MBA stock adjustable for length-of-pull and cheek height, A*B Arms pistol grip and KeyMod handguard. A 10-round removable box magazine is included with the chassis, and a full-length top rail canted 20 MOA for a scope graces the top of the chassis.

Planned upgrades for the future include a proprietary buttstock and rumors of a folding stock. Additional rifles and actions will be considered as the line expands (c'mon, Savage Model 10!).

It’s known that firearms can serve for a long time after they’re no longer cutting edge. Flintlocks held on long into the percussion era. During the American Civil War, plenty of cavalry units, especially local militias, turned up with single-shot pistols despite Colt’s revolvers having been on the market for a while by then.

We cannot lie: Colt’s latest revolver oozes class—and power. The new Anaconda is impressive and tough.

In today's episode of "I Carry," we have a Taurus G3 TORO optics-ready pistol equipped with a Bushnell RXS-100 red-dot sight and carried in a Kinetic Concealment outside-the-waistband holster.

Solving Issues with Brass Casings

Recently, while shooting a Norinco SKS, I experienced a failure to go into battery. Upon removing the cartridge, I found the round to be “shrouded” by another brass casing.
