Precision rifle shooters customize their rifles for optimum performance, and the chassis that holds the action and barrel is a vital part of the customization process. Rival Arms is recognized for their premium aftermarket handgun and rifle components, and now they are expanding their offering of drop-in chassis systems for the Remington 700 rifle with the new R-700 Precision Chassis.

The R-700 chassis is designed to accept all variants of the Remington 700 short-action barreled action. The chassis is CNC-machined from aluminum billet and is available in three finishes: Type III hardcoat anodized matte black; KG GunKote FDE; and KG GunKote Satin Gray finish.

Like the R-22 chassis that Rival Arms developed earlier this year for the Ruger 10/22 barreled action, the R-700 is designed to accept grips and buffer tube style buttstocks for AR-15 pattern rifles. This includes the Rival Arms ST-3X Precision Stock or any AR-15 stock that uses a 1-3/16 inches 16 Mil-Spec buffer tube. This versatility allows builders to add any buttstock that suits their specific needs, while also accommodating most A2 pattern pistol grips.

The precision inletting of the R-700 means that it is a drop-in fit for factory Remington 700 short-action barreled actions and aftermarket precision actions. The forend/barrel channel allows for a free floating barrel with all factory barrel contours and with barrels up to one inch in diameter. Fourteen machined M-Lok slots allow builders to install a broad range of readily available accessory mounts to adapt the chassis to any mission. The chassis also comes tapped with a sling swivel stud and has an ergonomic design with a scalloped forend for a positive grip when shooting without a rest.

MSRP for the new Rival Arms R-700 chassis is $381.99. More information on this product and other gear from Rival Arms is rival-arms.com

Review: Tisas PX-9 GEN3 Duty

It’s said that in life, one never gets a second chance to create a first impression. SDS Imports, the company that imports the Tisas firearms manufactured in Turkey, appears to have embraced that piece of wisdom, because I was extremely impressed from the moment I opened the box containing its new PX-9 GEN3 Duty 9 mm semi-automatic pistol. Except for some ammo, the box contained everything you need to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Before we dive headfirst into the morass that is the 30 Super Carry debate, let’s start with something (slightly) less controversial: Smith & Wesson’s Shield Plus is a supremely good pistol. Building on the success of the standard Shield and updated M2.0 versions, the Shield Plus kept critical dimensions similar to allow most gear designed for the Shield to work for the Shield Plus.
