Modular Driven Technologies TAC21 Chassis FDE

As promised I am now the proud owner of a Modular Driven Technologies TAC21 Chassis in Flat Dark Earth. Quite surprised to receive the chassis so quickly. It arrived before I finished ordering the rest of the parts for the project. I received the chassis with one AICS magazine manufactured by MDT. First look was a jaw dropper. The construction and finish are nothing short of impeccable. I could not visually locate a single flaw on the chassis or in the finish of the chassis. Im hopeful that the assembling will be equally as pleasing and form follows function.

As an update to the project another decision have been made. I will with 100% certainty be utilizing an Atlas BT46-LW17  Bipod. The Modular Driven Technologies TAC21 stock has been narrowed down to a Magpul PRS, Magpul UBR, ERGO F93 PRO Stock or Command Arms Advanced Sniper Stock.

As mentioned previously the first project at modularrfle.com is the “MDT TAC21 20 inch Suppressed Modular Rifle” project. We already have the Remington Model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-S on hand on now I am happy to report that the MDT TAC 21 Remington 700 Chassis System is inbound! Don’t be put off by the Brownells backorder status. I spoke with the fine folks at Modular Driven Technologies and they have tripled their production output on the MDT TAC 21 Remington 700 Chassis System.

MDT TAC 21 Remington 700 Chassis System Details

The MDT TAC21™ chassis system a combination of benchrest accuracy, superior ergonomics and specialized design. This chassis brings the bolt action rifles to the next level in versatility and modularity, with an instant improvement in accuracy.

The chassis system is manufactured out of billet 6061-T6 aluminum, which has been hard anodized to mil spec type III for extra strenth, and has been finished with Cerakote™ in Black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE).

TAC21™ chassis is engineered to minimize warping and distortion. The rifle receiver only makes contact with the TAC21™ chassis on the V shape bedding and recoil lug area insuring the best accuracy and repeatability. The generous clearance on the fore-end makes any barrel (diameter up to the receiver size – 1.350”), free floating.

Inherently the TAC21™ has a straightline design, meaning that the recoil comes straight back instead of making the front of the rifle kick upwards. This results in more accurate and quicker follow up shots. This also translates to a decrease in felt recoil and comfort.

MDT TAC 21 Remington 700 Chassis System Compatibility

The TAC21™ chassis system is currently manufactured for the following bolt action rifle platforms:

  • Remington 700 Short Action (.223 and .308 bolt faces)
  • Remington 700 Long Action (.300WM, .338LM, 7mm, 30.06)
  • Savage Short Action, Models 10, 11, 12 and 16 (.223 and .308 bolt faces)
  • Savage Long Action, Models 110, 111, 112 and 116 (.300WM and .338LM)
  • Tikka T3 – Short Calibers (.223 and .308 bolt faces)
  • Tikka T3 – Long Calibers (.300WM, 6.5×55, 7mm, 30.06). Requires MDT 3.560 Magazine.

 

MDT TAC 21 Remington 700 Chassis System Mounting and Compatible Accessories

The TAC21™ chassis is designed to accept any AR-15 butt-stock and pistol grip (purchased seperately), offering the option to customize from the wide variety of  Accessories available on the market.

The TAC21™ chassis uses external box style magazines in .223 and .308 caliber for Short Action and .300WM or .338LM magazines for Long Action rifles, and supports installation of bolt on MIL-STN-1913 accessory mounting rails on the fore-end and side of the action housing. Mounting holes are spaced for Magpul style L5 (11 slots) and L3 (7 slots) rails (1.600” / 3.200”).

With a top full length MIL-STN-1913 accessories mounting rail. The built-in mounting rail has 20 MOA (Minutes of Angle) on the action housing and is parallel to the barrel axis on the fore-end.

Note: Long action magazines come in 3 different lengths: 3.715″, 3.775″ an 8.050″. Our chassis use 3.715 magazines. If you purchased the Remington 700 Tactical Chassis Rifle, the magazine well is 3.775.

Surgeon Rifles Short Action Receiver

Surgeon Rifles Short Action Receiver 591SA Repeater

Surgeon Rifles Short Action Receiver 591SA Repeater

So you want to build your dream bolt gun, the ultimate precision rifle but do not know where to start? One path would be like I have  done. Go out purchase a Remington 700 Rifle or Barreled action. Throw away the most of the factory Remington parts, get the action blueprinted, new bolt know welded on etc or you can simply start out right  and purchase a Surgeon Rifles Short Action Receiver 591SA Repeater. There is probably no better foundation than the Surgeon Rifles Short Action Receiver 591SA Repeater and while the price is steep the cost is probably a wash compared to the custom Remington 700. In fact the Surgeon Rifles Short Action Receiver 591SA Repeater will probably be cheaper and definitely superior to the Remington 700.

Below is the description from Brownells. They sum it up nicely as do the Brownells Reviews at their site.

Complete short-action receiver and bolt assembly give the reliability and smoothness of the classic Remington 700 action combined with innovative features designed specifically for police, military, and civilian precision shooters. Receiver is machined, not forged, to exceptionally tight tolerances from a solid billet of 4340 steel for precise dimensions and superb strength. Raceways are EDM-cut to be perfectly square with the receiver face, threads, and bolt locking lug surfaces. A rail in the left raceway eliminates misfeeds caused by a shell getting stuck in the raceway, and the extended ejection port ensures plenty of clearance for fired cases. Full-length, 20 M.O.A. MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail milled into the receiver top offers exceptional scope mounting flexibility and stays perfectly aligned with the action centerline and barrel tenon threads because it can’t work loose or get misaligned by impact. Hefty ¼” thick recoil lug machined into the underside spreads recoil force over a larger area than standard lugs. Bolt is machined from a single piece of 4140 steel billet, including .308 (.473″ diameter) breech face, extraction cam, and bolt handle; outside diameter and locking lugs are machined in a single operation, so the lugs are perfectly square with the bolt exterior. Bolt maintains a .007″ clearance out of battery, with .004″ clearance (.002″ per side) when closed. Streamlined, screw-on tactical bolt knob can be replaced with other aftermarket knobs to suit your needs. Shroud around the oversize bolt stop keeps out dust and dirt and prevents accidental release. All components are heat treated for hardness before final surface machining to prevent unwanted stress or warpage. Extractor, ejector, firing pin, shroud, and cocking piece are standard Remington 700 parts, and action accepts all triggers, stocks, and magazines compatible with the 700, greatly expanding customizing options.

PMAG® 10 7.62 AC – AICS Short Action – Magpul

AICS is the acronym used to describe the Accuracy International Chassis System for the Remington 700 Model Rifle. It was designed by and for competitive shooters for for long range competition and military applications. One of the biggest drawbacks of the AICS has been the cost of the magazines at well over $100. Well that is about to change. Magpul has once again done what they do best and introduced a magazine, the PMAG® 10 7.62 AC – AICS Short Action. If the PMAG® 10 7.62 AC – AICS Short Action proves reliable in the field it will no doubt at $35 be a game changer for Remington 700 and AICS shooters.

  • Rugged polymer construction
  • Compatible with AICS spec bottom metal
  • Made in the USA

 

The PMAG® 10 7.62 AC – AICS  Short Action is a reliable and durable polymer magazine compatible with AICS-spec bottom metal and short action cartridges built on a 0.470″ case head. The 5 round capacity magazine is ideal for hunting regulation compliance, but the follower can be easily modified by the user to increase the capacity of the magazine to 6. The PMAG® 10 7.62 AC – AICS Short Action is ideal for competition or combat use when those extra rounds are crucial. Built using M3 technology, this magazine is advanced in both material and manufacturing processes, and Magpul has given it more features to make it the most advanced, reliable bolt action magazine on the market.

I just happen to have an AAC 762-SDN-6 on hand.

Remington XM2010 Army Sniper System Now In Stores

Remington XM2010 Army Sniper System

Remington XM2010 Army Sniper System

Confirmed examples of the Remington XM2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle have made their way to stores. Remington has been hinting and teasing about this for some time now, that they would be making the XM2010 commercially available, and the resulting package is more than anyone could have hoped for.
Being a sniper system it includes more than just a rifle. It includes one Enhanced Sniper Rifle chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum, effective out to 1,500 yards, one Leupold MKIV ERT 6.5-20x riflescope with an H-58 reticle and Badger Ordnance rings, a five-round detachable magazine, a Harris bipod, and lastly, an Advanced Armament Corp. (AAC) TiTAN suppressor and quick-detach muzzle break combo. All this comes packed in not one, but two cases, one soft inside one hard, which also include a deployment kit and a cleaning kit.
All this can be yours for the low, low price of just $17,000. That’s not a typo, opening bids start at $17,000 and that’s at the low end, with other shops pricing them at $18,000. (The optics and the can alone are worth about $4,000.)
That does not include the $200 tax stamp for the suppressor.
Other specifications of the XM2010 are that it weighs 12.1 pounds, is 46.5 inches long without the suppressor and 52 inches long with, has a totally free-floated 22-inch barrel and quad-railed handguard, has a completely adjustable buttstock and it uses AR-15 grips and trigger guards.
Obviously the exclusivity here is the XM2010’s major selling point. This is the rifle the US Army’s snipers use, and these examples are contract overruns of that very exclusive contract. (Let’s hope they’re overruns and not the rifles that are unable to meet the military’s 1 MOA or less at 200 yards requirement. Don’t worry, we’re joking, they’re guaranteed accurate.)
But you could do a whole lot for $17,000 (plus $200 for the tax stamp), not the least of which is make a comparable rifle with easily seven grand left over. Don’t take this the wrong way, the XM2010 is a phenomenally beautiful rifle, we’re especially glad that something this modern is getting into the hands of our troops. We just hope the military isn’t spending $17,000 a piece on these, either.
