With less than a week to go before SHOT Show 2018, Magpul has officially unveiled its Pro 700 Rifle Chassis.

Touted as a full featured precision rifle chassis for short action Remington 700 actions and other Remington 700 footprint actions, the Magpul Pro 700 is based on a full Type III hard anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum skeleton that features injection molded Magpul polymer. It’s also ambidextrous, being capable of fitting right and left-handed actions by swapping out the bolt-cutout plate, and boasting a reversible cheek riser and hinge on the folding version.

In the Facebook post announcing the the Pro 700, Magpul said that at the start of its bolt-action program and the earliest days of precision rifle training, the goal was to build the “best possible ‘no limits’ rifle chassis in the world.” After years of development and testing, Magpul is confident that day is finally here.

Available in black, FDE and olive drab green, the Magpul Pro 700 rifle chassis will be offered at a MSRP of $999.95. See below for a full list of features via the product page.
