Looking to build your own chassis rifle? Rival Arms makes it easy.

by the Shoot On staff

Chassis rifles have certainly gained a lot of traction in recent years as shooting enthusiasts look to merge barreled action bolt rifles with the modularity options pulled from the AR-15 platform arena. The most recent entry into the chassis rifle world is Rival Arms.

Rival Arms is a relatively new company that has made a serious splash in the do-it-yourself marketplace over the last couple of years—primarily with the company’s premium slide assemblies and components for GLOCK-pattern S&W pistols. Following their release of a chassis for the Ruger 10/22, Rival Arms is now offering a bolt-in system for the Remington 700 barreled action in the popular AICS magazine-compatible chambers, such as .308 Win, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Rem., 7mm-08, .243, and 7.62x51mm NATO.

The R-700 chassis is CNC-machined from billet aluminum to accommodate Remington 700 short-action receivers and barrels up to 1-inch maximum diameter. This free-float barrel configuration is a simple drop-in for the Remington short action with no additional inletting work required. The receiver channel is contoured (versus a V-block) to allow for an optional custom bedding.

We’ve built a rifle based on the R-700 chassis (go here to see how we did it) and were extremely pleased with the results. Since the R-700 chassis forend is designed to work with M-LOK-compatible rail systems and accepts AR-style grips and buttstocks, the customization options are wide open.
