Tikka T3 Element Chassis System | Pic of the Week 11-7-18

Check out this amazing rifle build out in Idaho's high country. Chassis systems are just meant for the range. The durable and rigid platform a chassis provides is unmatched in the field. Aluminum does not swell or shrink during extreme temperature swings, providing your receiver with the best environment possible.

Below is a quick build sheet for this sweet high country rifle build.

Thank you, Jared, for sharing your rifle build with us! If you'd like to be featured in an upcoming Pic of the Week, send us your pictures and build specs to info@xlrindustries.com

Carbon Fiber Chassis System Upgrade | Pic of the Week 10-31-18

XLR Industries

We love seeing pictures of completed rifles built on our chassis systems. What we love, even more, is knowing that we have earned our customers business by going above and beyond to make their shooting experience the best it can be.

This is what Chris Summers had to say about his experience with XLR and his new Carbon Chassis system.

"Here's a little about my setup; it's predominantly used equipment... I picked up a used factory rifle about 5 years ago and have only recently (April 2018) started putting together a long-range precision rig. I have gotten into the PRS addiction with the help of some of my friends and am working toward competing in next year's Gap Grind at K&M Precision. The only upgrade I am planning in the near future is a new optic (Vortex, Night Force, or Schmidt Bender). I've attached a couple of extra photos; hopefully, they will help.  The photo I originally submitted was from the Wisconsin Precision Rifle Steel Challenge (WPRSC) club match in September where I was able to go 9 out of 10 at 1000 yds on a standard IPSC target."   
 
Rife Breakdown:

"By far and away the biggest improvement in the accuracy of my system, over factory stock, has been the XLR Carbon Chassis. The Hogue-overmolded factory stock was flimsy and flexed with even the slightest pressure. The chassis is rugged and extremely well constructed. I am planning another build in the next 2 years and plan to utilize another XLR Chassis for it."
 
"I can personally attest to the excellent team at XLR. I have contacted them on a couple of occasions with problems or just questions and they are prompt! Not just with an automated response, but with an actual response and solutions. I can think of one issue in particular where I had stripped 2 screws on the buttstock only days before my second match... I contacted them and they responded that evening and it was followed up with a phone call as well. They had me back up and operational with time to spare before the match. This completely blew me away; I thought I was going to have to miss it."
 
"Thank you for your time and great service; you've definitely earned my business!!"
 
Respectfully,
Chris Summers

Remington 700 Evolution Chassis System | Pic of the Week 10-24-18

Here is a what David from Phoenix Arizona had to say about setting up his new rifle build;

"Cerakote was inspired by an XLR build 6.5 Creedmoor I fell in love with on the internet. The whole receiver and recoil lug were bedded. This chassis has the look and feel I was going for. I couldn't believe how smooth and well it shot while working up a load. 5 shots of each load work up at 100yrds. The pic attached was the obvious winner but the rest all grouped tight. Thanks for looking and for making a badass chassis. From Phx AZ  David"

Below are the build specs on David's rifle:

2018 National Rifle League Finale | Test the Best

As the official chassis sponsor for the NRL once again for the 2018 season, XLR couldn't have been more excited to see the finale of another great year! The NRL has really stirred things up in the precision rifle world, and this seasons set of matches was no different.

Going into the final match of the year, XLR Pro Shooter Jake Vibbert was tied for first with Jon Pynch. A teammate and competitor that Jake has been next to on the podium all year long, sometimes in front, sometimes behind. So everyone knew the last match was going to be a close call for these two.

The final match was again held up in the northwest, with wide open ranges and home to some of the most diverse shooting areas in the country.

"Precision Rifle Shooters of Idaho brings you the 2018 NRL Test the Best Oktoberfest Championship match – the same team who directed NRL’s inaugural match in 2017!

This precision rifle match will Test the Best and determine the 2018 Champion precision rifle shooter! A limited amount of competitors who competed in the 2018 NRL season and received qualifying scores are invited to this match."

After the last shot was made, and the ring of distant steel faded, Jon came out on top, and Jake in a close second place. The split between first and second within 2 points. And 3rd place finisher, Austin Orgain, within a couple points of that.

XLR is proud to have such amazing shooters and people representing our brand. This year we had numerous team members have podium finishes, top ten finishes and top of the pack finishes. All of which we couldn't be more proud to be a part of.

Thank you to everyone who was a part in making this match, and the entire years of matches one to remember. The support and love from all the amazing companies have truly pushed this sport in the last few years.

As the competitive year comes to a close, with just a few PRS matches left, we can't wait to see what the 2019 season has in store.

Carbon Fiber Savage Chassis | Pic of the Week 10-3-18

Custom Carbon Fiber Chassis

Caleb put together a sweet Savage rifle on a budget, here is what Caleb had to say about his new build;

"Savage model 12 chambered in .308. Nothing custom for barrel or action. And a Vortex Viper 4-16. Pretty simple as I didn’t know much about custom rifles when I put it together. I did do my research on the carbon chassis though and found it was superb. I use it as a fun target rifle, and I will be using it for deer season this year also..."

By upgrading to a chassis system you can quickly unleash the full potential of your off-the-shelf rifle. With the vast adjustments in the buttstock and chassis, you can fit the rifle to your frame. Making your shooting experience much more enjoyable, and those long days at the range more enjoyable.
