The Newly Redesigned MDT JAE-700 G4 Chassis is Coming Soon!

MDT, the new owners of the JAE Chassis brand, announced the newly redesigned JAE chassis. The “JAE-700 G4” will be available for preorder in the next couple of weeks.

From the JAE Chassis Facebook page, we learned

  • “Parts are being made for the first production run and pre-orders will be available soon. Please make sure you are signed up for the Newsletter on the website so you don’t miss the e-mail.”
  • “The NEW JAE-700 G4 Chassis will include both the Vertical Grip (shown in this photo) and the Angled Grip so you can use the one most comfortable for you or switch between the two.
  • “The vertical and angled grips for the G4 bolt on a different way so they do not fit the older models.”
  • “We will be making left-handed, just not on the first production run”
  • “The Adjustable Magwell helps you dial in the perfect fit and feed on your mags.”
  • “A lefty was made with the original JAE-700 under J. Allen also. The NEW JAE-700 G4 required new tooling and new processes with the bolt-on skins.”
  • “We will be starting with a Short Action first. Plans for LA, and not sure about Medium at this time.”
  • “We definitely have plans to make the new generation of the JAE-100 for the M1A / M14 once we get the REM 700 Chassis shipping.”

Hopefully, the JAE 700 G4 will be priced like other MDT products. Regardless after two and a half years of delay, we will finally be able to finish the 6.5 Creedmoor Long Range Sniper Rifle build.

In July 2019, with much sadness, we learned that J.Allen had gone out of business, and one of the most winningest rifle chassis ever made, the JAE 700, would no longer be manufactured. This put a halt to our 6.5 Creedmoor Long Range Sniper Rifle Build Project. Fortunately, it seemed that while J.Allen was to be no more MDT purchased the assets and rights to the JAE 700 Remington 700 rifle chassis. It’s no secret I’m a fan of MDT, the company, and their chassis, and if there were to be a happy ending for the JAE 700 chassis, it would be under MDT.

I expected that MDT would get the JAE 700 to market somewhat quickly because the JAE 700 is darn good as is. It turns out I was wrong, my excitement turned to sadness as there was nothing but silence from Modular Driven Technologies. In fact, I became tired of waiting, and on more than one occasion, I started to look for JAE 700 alternatives from KRG (Kinetic Research Group) and Accuracy International.

Fast forward to January 28, 2022, I decided to contact MDT/JAE through the JAE dedicated website and see if I could get a status update. MDT has phenomenal customer service, and I was sure I would get a reply; I just wasn’t sure I would obtain helpful information. I was once again partially wrong. Below is their response.

Yes, we are getting closer to launching.  We had a few samples of the chassis at Shot Show last week and we are making some samples for testing.  Just making some final tweaks to the product before releasing.

Thank you for your patience and have a great weekend!

MDT JAE was also kind enough to send some JAE 700 pictures and a video from the 2022 Shot Show. See below.

It looks like our build project will be happening after all. I will be one of the first in line to order a chassis when they become available. Look for the JAE 700 to be available sometime in 2022.

J Allen Global Closes Doors

J Allen JAE 700 Rifle Chassis

J. Allen Rifle Chassis Manufacturer Out Of Business

Well this is disappointing news and perhaps a sign of the dismal state of the firearm history. I guess I’m going to need a different chassis for my 6.5 Creedmoor Long Range Sniper Rifle project.

To our valued customers and fans of J. Allen:

It is with great sadness that after 16 years of designing and manufacturing one of the highest quality chassis systems in the world, we have recently had to layoff our employees and close our doors.

We appreciate all of you and wish that it did not have to come to this, but we were unable to find a solution to stay open. Please understand and respect that this is extremely difficult for our family and employees, and wish that we could have kept on going.

For everyone on our 5 person team, customers were our number 1 priority and it hurts us that it ended this way. At this time, we are unable to give any more info, and if that changes in the future, we will let you know.

Thank you to all who have believed in our products and loved them as much as we did. This was our life.

J.Allen JAE 700 Rifle Chassis System

The precision rifle world is awash in slick and high quality gear, but no chassis is more beautifully made or offers the features of the J. Allen Enterprises JAE 700 chassis. The most compelling feature is the adjustable magazine retention system that allows the shooter to bounce back and forth between AICS pattern and AW (Arctic Warfare) magazines. No chassis will better pair the AW double-stack magazine with a two-lug action than the JAE 700.
