Center Grip chassis, gauging interest..... Login/Join 



posted
Attention XP shooters!!

How many people would be interested in a CENTER GRIP chassis for the XP??

I've been working on this with a VERY REPUTABLE chassis maker and trying to see what kind of interest is there.

Cost would be in the $475 ballpark.

We'd need to sell at least 10 for designing and set up on his end.

AND GO!

Details. munch I could be interested. The new "XP100 Chassis". Any added material to stiffen the grip and some type of aluminum or epoxy insert for the forend to accept sling/bipod stud?
Grip like HS or McMillan or a cross between the two. Hum. scratch head
I could be swayed in this direction. Cool I might even order a new undesignated Remington action for the build.

Seems like the interest is growing.

The chassis would be made by Craig Kierstead of PDC Customs if we can get enough interest.

The chassis would be aluminum and utilize an AR style grip. Thus far, there hasn't been any design work done. However, here is his website......

PDC Custom | The premier rifle chassis system
https://www.pdccustom.com/

He has made several pistol chassis for the Savage and I think some for a few Remington 700's.....

Input folks, that's what I'm needing. We can get about anything done, within reason.

If it does not work out with PDC let me know. I would be more than willing to add to my existing pistol chassis line. I will let you guys on SP sketch out the design in collaboration on the forum, then I can create a drawing/ 3D model for group approval. Once approved I would need a "group buy" to begin production.

DLD

I am going to throw out some dumb questions here,

1. How about getting this new pistol stock,
with these options, user choice.

A center grip and a rear grip, all on one stock,
just move to the user choice,

Rear grip location for SA Rem type rifle actions,

Center grip for the XP action,
allows the shooter to have a choice with more options.

2. The above stock with a mag well,(hunting use),
for a limited amount of cases, (1-2 rounds),
would be for the rear grip rifle actions,
due to the trigger linkage of the XP action.

3. Since this stock is being planned for round type actions,
why not include the Savage actions?

I do not know the action spacing of the stock screws,
for the Rem/Savage actions and or the lengths involved.

But IMHO, more choices = more stocks sold.

Tia,
Don

I may be wrong here but I get the impression they are really looking for a centergrip chassis because there isn't other centergrip chassis options out there. There are chassis for savages, for SA700's, and even rear grip XP-100's. But nothing for centergrip.

Aaron is correct......

There are options out there for everything BUT a center grip XP. I've owned a custom chassis set up, but, IMHO lacked in feasibility overall on the design. A true, drop in chassis would open up numerous options to the end user for the xp.

It's not like that. You should think about a barrel block rig. Whether it's a chassis or not. Then it wouldn't be Swiss cheese with holes for multiple actions.

I think I have an xp from topstrap. Once in my hand I will begin the design. I will work on function/feature placement. I will post on here what I come up with. I do want to make this a group effort. Once we are happy with the xp we can gauge interest in the striker. Stay tuned guys.

Consider some kind of a barrel channel, whether it is added wood or aluminum etc. i think it would/could improve looks dramatically over just having flat plate forend with complete barrel in view. Look sells.

I'll buy one of the first models (if you need a certain amount to make it worth your while) as long as it's a truce center grip chassis and not a barrel block rig. As stated above, barrel channel would be nice. Something nice and heavy and one piece like the GEN1 would be my choice. I personally don't care for the side plates and removable trigger guard of the Gen2 models. The simplistic one piece design of the GEN1 is what makes me love it so.

Just my input if you are taking ideas....

If you design a center-grip stock that is suitable for hunting and field use, I'm in.

I've drawn up a few , center grip - rear grip - block on both center and rear.

I think a mid grip with a magwell, or even a couple integral rounds would be clumsy and the trigger would get complicated.

The stumbling point is the grip. The AR style is easy enough but it gives the appearance that it's an afterthought.

For the Center-grip design I would not want an internal magazine or a detachable magazine as it makes what you do with the trigger such a problem.
Single-Shot for me please.

Then.....who knows. I love the looks of an HS and they are strengthened now i guess. Minor fitting concerns this bonehead lol.

I like the looks of that a lot, should be good for field! Make the forearm with out the vents and add tap holes so you could add side plates to widen it out if you wanted too.

COG of gun in photo is too far back IMHO. Without heavier barrel and/or a good brake, you will get lots of muzzle lift like the original zytel XP's had with heavier calibers. Opportunity to add weight in forend area would help move center of gravity further out and resolve the issue. You may also want to ensure you have enough clearance for a Dewey trigger and linkage.

My added 2cents to the kitty....

That's a good looking piece.A little in the forend, especially with heavy barrels. The AR grip fits that stock much better than it does on a rear grip. Looks good...first impression....."stiletto".

It does look good, but I think if the forend a bit longer and angled into the trigger guard and give the top of the grip in web area more radius and shorten the rear a inch it would look better.

I'd be interested in one of these...

However, to suit my eye, I'd want a thicker forend for asthetics, and not so much overhang in the rear.

Otherwise good.

I would not make the height of the forend any deeper/longer than what you would get with a H-S sillywet or McMillan stock from the bottom of the barrel channel to the bottom of the forend.

Whats the reason for the drop down portion that would be behind the grip? Is that much room needed for trigger housing? The first pic makes it look like it comes down quite a bit.

I dont have a complaint yet. I like what i see so far. Love to see a full side view with grip on.
Look forward to other expert thoughts.

Looks like a nice start. Personally I would like to see the edges with a 1/4" or so radius vs sharp corners, like at rear of chassis. FWIW . What is OAL of chassis?

Thanks for the feedback

1) Cody I agree we should be able to reduce the size of the rear portion.

2) It will have a chamfer or radius on all edges. The cam program looks for a sharp edge, then we tell it to chamfer.

3) It will use an AR grip. We will most likely use a DPMS Panther grip like on the chassis we offer currently. It works well having the palm shelf for rear bagging.

We are working on a 3D printed version to actually hold in our hands to test ergonomics. I am not a mid grip guy, so the plan is to ship it off to Jeremy England to get hands on feedback.

Thanks for everyones patience. We will get a good product together.

At the risk of being too negative, I don't like the looks of this one.

I'd prefer more rounded edges with a less BLOCKY look.

Looks like a good start! I'm sure you will be honing the final product a bit.
Without trying to sound contrite to Rog, I feel that a chassis should have a small amount of blocky appearance. Counterintuitive perhaps but...... Mill down the rear portion just a tad and I'm in!

I would leave the back of the tang long enough to where a person or the gunsmith could tap the very back of the action like you would a normal model seven or 700 and get rid of that small center screw.
Also, in the back on the side or on the back of the tang to where you could put flush cups and also the ability to put flush cups on either side of the forend end.
If you can angle the grip area to where the AR grip you're going to be using will have a vertical or close to vertical grip like you would with a McMillan center grip stock or a H-S Precision.
It may already be that way. Just my thoughts.
Until I actually handle one I can't say what else I would like or not like about it

Has there been any progress on this chassis project?
I'm interested to see the next step in the evolution of this stock.

Thanks,

I'll be anxiously watching for them Brad. I like the thought of carbon fiber.

Carbon fiber or any other material that would help absorb some vibration, would be good in my opinion

I would also encourage leaving some room so that the stock can be skim bedded.
The reason for this is that from XP action to XP action is they are not the same.

i was not happy being lead along and given hope, then all of a sudden, would not respond back to a potential customer. I assume the project was ditched, or on LONG term hold. I was truly interested and waited many months to very possibly use the alum center grip chassis on my xp build. All it would have took was comunication back to me instead of being dropped like a hot potatoe.

I ended up with the mcmillan on my xp and very happy with it. I hate to bad mouth, but i was very displeased after they found out i wasnt needed for a centergrip aluminum stock purchase.

Since you are out of country you may need to get one directly from McMillan or through a McMillan dealer in your area, if there is one.
