Not one, not two, but three XLR chassis systems at the same shooting range! Thank you, Jason, for sharing this awesome picture with us. If you're interested in knowing what each rifle houses, check below.
XLR chassis systems are a direct drop-in product. No gunsmithing, bedding, or custom inletting needed. Torque down your action screws, load up a magazine and you're off to the range. Simplest, quickest way to take a standard rifle and make it one of a kind.

Needing a bench rest plate for your M-LOK compatible handguard or forend? We got you covered with the new XLR Industries M-LOK Bench Rest Plate. With dimensions of 3" wide by 6" long, this plate easily fits into standard bench rest rigs. Whether it is site-in-day at the range, a weekend bench rest match, or you're a hardcore bench rest shooter, this plate has you covered.
If you are running a GEN 1 XLR Chassis system, with the round tubular handguards, or non-mlok forends, on the Element, Carbon, Evolution, Evolution HD, or Evolution BMG, we still have the original bench rest plates cut specifically for those chassis. CLICK HERE for the original bench rest plates.
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.

Here is what Steve had to say about our products.
I am submitting these as potential pics of the week.
I purchased the Evolution chassis back when you were getting started and have enjoyed it a lot. The Element was recently purchased for my wife and I put a Savage 12FV into the chassis for her. Both guns have been shot long distance and are regularly shot from a Pig Saddle out to 600 yds. I love everything about the chassis and the great customer service when I have called with questions. I especially like the chassis because of no bedding and not having to buy a bottom metal set up as an add-on. Those two items save a considerable amount of money and time. Both chassis were plug and play and fitment and finish are excellent.
Super nice products at reasonable prices, great value.
Ever wondered if you could use a chassis system for hunting. Short answer. Yes. Check out what Luke Conner, with Long Range Only, has to say about using the XLR chassis systems for hunting.
And not only has he had success with our products, but they work just as well for his 3 children who love to shoot!
This week we wanted to feature some of the coolest looking Envy chassis that we have seen! Both belonging to Wes Karmazin out of Las Vegas. Check out the build list below for these amazing rifles.
This rifle started life as a Cabela's Black Friday special 12FV that I bought for under 300 dollars. I built this one as a trainer for cheaper practice and for teaching people new to long range shooting. It's capable out to 1000 yards as an analog for shooting bigger stuff out to ELR ranges. Also, it will see service as a varmint rifle shooting off the Gitzo/Really Right Stuff tripod setup.
This has been my workhorse rifle for over 10 years. It started life as a Savage 10BAS-K .308 and slowly changed into what it is now. I mostly shoot it in our monthly matches at Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club in the Long Range Precision Varmint Silhouette match. It's proven capable out to 1880 yards.
A question we receive a lot, "Is upgrading to a chassis system really worth the extra money?"
Of course being a manufacturer of rifle chassis systems we are going to tell you that upgrading to a chassis system is the best way to go to enhance your shooting experience. Here are a few reasons to back that up.
Modularity. Allows the end user to change, swap and outfit their rifle to suit whatever purpose they desire. Sometimes without having to loosen a single nut or bolt. And the integration of today's widely used 1.5" RRS dovetail system has set us apart from the competition once again.
Increase in accuracy and repeatability. Our multi-point radial cut inlet contacts the receiver with more than 100 designated high points. Mimicking high-end glass bedding but with the ability to change barreled actions in minutes.
Adjustability. You can adjust the same buttstock and chassis system to fit a 6'0" man and a 5'0" child in a matter of minutes. XLR buttstocks have the largest range of adjustment compared to anyone in our class.
Price point. If you look into a traditional rifle stock, with a detachable box magazine system, 99% of the time those traditional stocks will cost more. Not to mention gunsmithing costs for bedding and inletting the stock. With our chassis system, you have it all right out of the box and within minutes your action can be bolted up and shooting.
Common misconceptions on rifle chassis for the traditional shooter, whether it be for hunting, target shooting or competing, can easily be settled with a little research.
And if you ever have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 970-241-1807 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to help steer you in the right direction, whether it involves using our products or not!
And thank you, Jason, for sending in the picture of your rifle!
