I’ve been trying to get my 14 year old son weened off the AR. He likes the pistol grip and adjustable stock. We are finally moving beyond the standard teenage boy area suppression fire after missing a nice buck this Winter…maybe the old man is on to something about making one shot count?. Anyway, I’m not much of a fan of new tech rifles. I saw a couple of these chassis setups and figured we’d try one. This is a LSS by MDT. The action is a Bighorn Origin. The intent is to shoot 6X45, but I had this 6.5 Manbun barrel here from a Savage project so today I cut it down to 17” and threaded it 5/8-24 for the Silencerco Harvester. It’s about 8.5lbs as is. The new barrel will be carbon fiber and hopefully we’ll lose an additional half a pound with it.

First impressions of the chassis is positive. The machining is very nice. It’s too heavy. The hardware is Magpul. Plastic but decent quality. Hope to get a range report soon. Right now the conditions are not conducive to a fun time at the shooting area.

Here’s a pic:

I dropped a Howa Mini action into a MDT LSS for my grands to hunt with. That adjustable butt stock is what sold me, it has worked very well, I think you will like yours.

At either weight, it sure as heck won't have a recoil issue.

CM,
That is nice work! I would like that cartridge slide for 50-110 Win. I would also use it for 500 S&W. Six cartridge loops would be perfect for me.

I will send you payment immediately.

Thank you,
