Warranty

What does the XLR Lifetime Guarantee cover?

At XLR Industries, we take pride in our work and in our products. We also value your satisfaction.Because of these ideas, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY against manufacturing defects and structural performance on all products we offer.
We do not cover cosmetic damage such as scratches or color fading.
If the chassis has been modified by the user in a manner that causes failure, we may at our discretion void warranty on that part of the chassis. 

I bought my XLR Chassis System secondhand, does the warranty still apply?

Absolutely. No matter where you acquired your XLR product, it will always be covered under our lifetime warranty. Guaranteed.

Chassis

What type of material are XLR Chassis Systems made from?

Our chassis systems and parts are made from 6061 T6 Aluminum.

What type of bedding system do XLR Chassis Systems use?

Our chassis systems utilize a multi-point radial cut inlet which allows the receiver to sit in the chassis stress free for utmost accuracy (no V-block). Our chassis are a true drop-in system and do not require any bedding or gun smithing.

Is the inlet for the XLR Chassis System universal?

No. Our chassis inlets are machined specifically for the intended receiver and are not universal or interchangeable.

Is the bedding surface different between the different XLR Chassis Systems?

No. The inlet design is the same between all three of our chassis series so you will not gain or lose accuracy with the different chassis.

Does the XLR Chassis System require bedding?

No. Because we machine our inlet specifically for the intended receiver utilizing the multi-point radial inlet, our chassis do not require any bedding.

I have an oversized recoil lug; will it fit in the XLR Chassis System?

Yes. Our chassis utilize an oversized recoil lug pocket that will allow up to a .315” thick recoil lug allowing the use of most oversized recoil lugs. If a larger recoil lug pocket is needed, that is available upon request.

I have a Tikka/Sako TRG action, what type of recoil lug does the XLR Chassis System use?

Our chassis will include a replacement hardened steel recoil lug to use with the Tikka/ TRG actions.

How big of a barrel will the XLR Chassis System accommodate?

Our chassis will accept up to a 1.25” straight contour barrel and still remain fully free floating. Our Evolution HD and BMG chassis will accommodate larger barrels.

Is the barrel completely free floating in the XLR Chassis System?

Yes. Our chassis provide a completely free floating barrel forward of the recoil lug.

Will the XLR Chassis System accommodate a “Remage” style barrel nut?

Yes. The Remage style barrel nut will fit into our chassis without issue.

Is the XLR Chassis System compatible with aftermarket trigger systems?

Yes. Our chassis systems will accommodate most after market triggers.

Will the original action bolts work with the XLR Chassis System?

No. Our chassis system will include replacement action screws to install the chassis.

What are the recommended torque specifications for the XLR Chassis System?

We recommend 65 in-lbs for both action screws and 45 in-lbs for all other chassis screws.

I don’t see my action listed, does XLR do custom inlets?

Yes. Depending on the action it may be possible to provide a custom inlet. Please feel free to contact us in regards to custom inlets. Custom inlet availability is subject to change.

What action modifications are needed for the Winchester Model 70/FN SPR?

The magazine opening in the action will need to be opened slightly to accept the larger AICS pattern magazine. It is recommended that modifications be performed by a competent gunsmith.

What bolt stop modifications are needed for the Savage .223?

The bolt stop on the Savage .223 bolt extends to the rear farther than on the .308 models. This prevents the bolt from travelling back far enough to cycle cartridges from the magazine. The bolt stop will need to be milled flat or replaced with the .308 style bolt stop, which is available at most gun parts retailers such as Brownells or Midway USA. It is recommended that modifications be performed by a competent gunsmith.

What action modifications are needed for the Remington Model 7?

To install our chassis system, the rear action screw hole in the Remington Model 7 action will need to be drilled and tapped to accommodate the large ¼”-28 action screws utilized by our chassis systems. It is recommended that modifications be performed by a competent gunsmith.

Are XLR Chassis Systems compatible with aftermarket AR style grips?

Yes. Please note that if the AR style grip has a “beaver tail” it will not be compatible with our chassis and the ‘beaver tail” portion will need to be cut flat.

What type of finish is on the XLR Chassis Systems?

All XLR chassis are anodized with a Type II Class II anodized matte finish.

Are the XLR Chassis Systems available in other colors?

Unfortunately we only currently offer a matte black anodized finish at this time.

Will the XLR Chassis System accept Cerakote™ or similar firearm finishes?

Yes. Our chassis will accept firearm coatings such as Cerakote™

Magazines

What is the CIP length magazine/magwell?

The CIP length magazine is a magazine with a longer internal length of 3.750” to be used with .338LM and similar cartridges. Please note, that in order to use the CIP magazines, your chassis will need to have the CIP length magazine well. RUM cartridges must use the CIP length magazine well.

What type of magazines do XLR Chassis Systems accept?

Our chassis systems accept AICS pattern magazines. AW style magazines will also work but only if the action is specifically made to do so.

My caliber is not listed, which magazine do I use?

Many calibers will use a standard size magazine depending on the cartridge overall length (COAL). Cartridges with a COAL of 2.855” or shorter (such as 6.5 Creedmore, .260 Rem, .22-250 Rem, etc) will utilize the .308 style AICS magazine. For long action cartridges with a COAL shorter than 3.615” (such as 7mm, 30-06, 6.5x284, etc) will use the .300WM style AICS magazine. For cartridges with a COAL longer than 3.615" and for RUM cartridges, the .338CIP length magazine will be used.

Handguards

Are aftermarket picatinny rails compatible with XLR handguards?

Because there is no industry standard for rail mounting, our hand guards may not be compatible with aftermarket rails. We do offer specific rails for our chassis that are available for order.

Are M-LOK™ rails compatible with XLR handguards?

No. Our handguards are not M-LOK™ compatible.

Are XLR Chassis Systems compatible with aftermarket handguards?

No. Our hand guards are made specifically for our chassis systems and are not interchangeable with aftermarket hand guards.

What is the difference between the Tactical Lite and Tactical buttstocks?

The Tactical Lite and Tactical butt stock will ride a bag differently. The Tactical Lite butt stock is designed more for use with a softer, squeeze bag with the intent being that the bag rests in the ‘hook’ shape in the bottom of the butt stock and the shooter is able to squeeze or release the bag for elevation adjustments. The Tactical butt stock is intended more for a firmer bag with the intent being that the shooter can rest the ‘ramp’ shape of the butt stock on the bag and either pull in or out for elevation adjustments. The Tactical butt stock also offers the option to cant the recoil pad whereas the Tactical Lite only has vertical adjustment of the recoil pad. The Tactical butt stock is also 5 ounces heavier.

What is the difference between the Tactical buttstocks and the Extreme buttstock?

The Extreme butt stock is different from our Tactical series as it is more designed for bench rest or F-Class applications since it does not have the sling or mono pod provisions that are found on the Tactical butt stock series.

Will the Magpul PRS™ or similar rifle style AR butt stock work on the XLR Chassis?

The Magpul PRS™ and similar rifle style AR butt stocks can be used on our chassis system but will require some modification. Our chassis does not have provisions for the anti-rotation dowel found on rifle style AR butt stocks, and this portion will drop into the grip area preventing use of the pistol grip. The anti-rotation dowel area on the butt stock will need to be milled down enough to allow the shooter’s hand to fit onto the grip, and the butt stock will also need to be drilled and pinned to prevent it from rotating.

Will the Tactical Lite or Tactical buttstock work on an AR platform?

The Tactical and Tactical Lite butt stocks will install on an AR platform. However if the AR is a rear charging weapon system, the cheek rest may interfere with the charging handle. Our Tactical AR Butt stock is recommended for AR applications.

Are XLR buttstocks compatible with a monopod?

The Tactical Lite and Tactical butt stocks are compatible with a mono pod. The mono pod adapter kit is required and is sold separately.

What sling mounts do the XLR buttstocks utilize?

The Tactical and Tactical Lite butt stocks have QD/flush cup style sling points installed on both the left and right side. Matching QD/flush cup sling mounts are available separately.

Is the XLR butt stock considered a fixed buttstock?

Yes. The XLR butt stocks are considered a fixed butt stock.

What is the range of adjustment for the cheek rest?

All XLR buttstocks have 1.2” of vertical cheek rest adjustment.

What is the range of adjustment for the recoil pad?

The Tactical and Tactical AR buttstock both have .700” of vertical recoil pad adjustment and cant adjustment of +/-10°. The Tactical Lite buttstock has .700” of vertical recoil pad adjustment and no cant adjustment (unless equipped with optional Dual Plate Conversion Kit which gives +/-10° of cant). The Extreme buttstock has 1.5” of vertical recoil pad adjustment and no cant adjustment. The BMG buttstock has 1.7” of vertical recoil pad adjustment and no cant adjustment.

Is the XLR buffer tube mil-spec or commercial?

Neither. Our buffer tubes have a larger outside diameter than A2 style or carbine style buffer tubes. The inside diameter and threaded portion are all standard AR sizes however.

What length buffer tubes do XLR buttstocks use?

Our butt stocks utilize a Carbine length buffer tube.

Are XLR buffer tubes compatible with A2 style or aftermarket buttstocks?

No. Because of the larger diameter of our buffer tubes, they are not compatible with aftermarket butt stocks.

Will XLR buffer tubes accept the JP Silent Capture Springs™?

Yes. Our buffer tubes are compatible with the JP Silent Capture Springs™ 

Scope Bases

Will my existing scope base be compatible with the XLR Chassis System?

The Evolution and Carbon series chassis system both utilize a fully enclosed handguard that some scope bases are not compatible with. If your existing scope base extends past the receiver face more than .200” it will need to be trimmed. We can trim your scope base to fit at no additional charge if you ship it to the address listed on our site.

What height scope rings will I need?

Without having all of the components in hand it is very difficult to give an accurate scope ring height. For this reason, we have provided a scope ring height formula to help you determine the proper ring height required.

(All units in inches.  Ring height measured from top of base to scope center line. Sloped bases add .035" to height every six inches objective extends from base.)

For standard Evolution chassis:
(actual objective diameter/2) + .9 - (action diameter/2) - base height = required ring height

For Evolution HD / Carbon chassis:
(actual objective diameter/2) + 1.05 - (action diameter/2) - base height = required ring height

These formulas are provided as an estimate and do not guarantee correct fit. Use your own discretion.

Night Vision Compatibility

Are XLR Chassis Systems night vision/thermal compatible?

Yes. The Evolution chassis system hand guard has pre-existing mounting holes that will accept a picatinny style rail at the 12 o’clock position.

The Carbon chassis has rail mounting holes at the 12 o’clock position available upon request.

The Element chassis system utilizes a night vision mount that is available separately.

Folding Option

What is the added length of pull with the folding adapter?

The folding adapter will add 1.7” to the total length of pull.

Do I need the shortened buffer tube with the folding adapter?

The shortened buffer tube is not required with the folding adapter, but is used to compensate for the added length of pull by the folding adapter.

Does the folding adapter lock in the folded position?

No. The folding adapter does not have a physical lock for when it is in the folded position.

Is there any ‘play’ in the folding adapter when the butt stock is extended?

There are 2 adjustment screws in the folding adapter that can be adjusted to take any play out of the folder allowing it to lock down tight when in the extended position.

Will the folding adapter work on an AR platform?

While the folding adapter does use standard AR buffer tube thread size, it is not compatible with AR platforms.

Can the folding adapter be added at a later time?

Yes. The folding adapter is a modular, plug and play accessory that can be added at any time.
