This review will give you some insight into an excellent chassis system that can be made to fit just about every type of shooting style.
In trying to find a stock to fit my new Savage custom I wanted something different than the average tactical stock, so I started looking around and ran across the XLR Industries website. Immediately I found out that this is not your average cookie cutter stock. The XLR Industries Evolution Chassis System is an all aluminum chassis that boasts sleek lines with an infinite amount of adjustments. Its pistol grip design and detachable magazine are just up my alley. I was amazed at the options that were available and the amount of actions that that can be inlet for, from your average Remington 700 all the way up to the biggest Lawton action. Even the 50 caliber, and everything in between. And if you donít see your specific action on the XLR Industries website, give them a call and they can custom inlet for your specific action at no extra charge.
There are three chassis available from XLR. The XLR Evolution chassis is the standard chassis that works well with just about any of your standard actions like the Savage, Winchester and Remington based actions. The second chassis is the XLR Evolution HD chassis. This chassis is for the larger actions like the Stiller tac, .408, and the Surgeon XL. The last option is the XLR Evolution BMG chassis. This is designed for the largest .50 BMG actions. With each chassis there is the option for a single shot or repeater if your action is designed for it. Each chassis also has the option of a 12 or 14 inch hand guard that can be upgraded with a 4 way picatinny rail kit or a single rail for bipod mounting, as well as a 3 inch benchrest plate. Also, all stocks have the option of a folding butt stock kit.
The folding butt stock kit.
The rail kit.
The butt stock has several options. The first option is the standard stock that comes with the XLR Evolution and XLR Evolution HD. It has one supporting arm and a 5/8 inch sand bag rail, and is adjustable for length of pull and cant. The recoil pad is adjustable for height. The cheek piece is available for either right or left handed shooters, and there is also an option for an ambidextrous cheek piece.
The extreme butt stock.
The second option is the extreme butt stock. This is a heavier stock that features 2 supporting arms as well as a 1 inch sand bag rail. It also comes standard with an ambidextrous cheek piece. This stock has an adjustable length of pull but is not adjustable for cant. This is the standard stock for the .50 XLR Evolution BMG chassis, but is an option for the Evolution chassis. The third option is the tactical stock. It has an ambidextrous cheek piece, swivel cups on both sides and provisions for a monopod.
