Offered as a standalone and with the Howa 1500 barreled action, the Oryx chassis offers affordable accuracy.
What the Oryx chassis offers:
- Light 4.2-pound weight
- Fully adjustable length of pull and comb height
- M-Lok slot on underside of forend
- AICS magazine compatibility
- Free floating barrel
Modular Driven Technologies makes an offer few shooters can refuse with its Oryx chassis, “A complete bolt-action rifle chassis system for under 400 bucks.” Pretty sweet, especially for those who have a yen for long-range precision on a budget.
Unsurprisingly, the Canadian company’s affordable accuracy caught the attention of Legacy Sports, who in recent years has become an epicenter of economy chassis systems. In 2019, the Nevada importer will sell both the Oryx chassis as a standalone and matched up with Howa’s 1500 barreled action, and both come in as quite a deal.
Complete rifle packages start at $1,059 and are available in 6.5 Grendel, 7.62x39mm, .223 Rem./5.56 NATO, .300 BLK, .308 Win., 6.5 CM, 6mm CM and .300 Win. Mag. This is a healthy sample of Howa’s 1500 long, short and mini actions. Staying true to its promise, the Oryx itself has an MSRP of $399 and is available for Remington, Tikka, Savage and Ruger rifles, in addition to Howa.

A one-piece integrated aluminum chassis and buttstock, the Oryx has everything you’d expect out of a chassis. This includes fully adjustable length of pull (13.25 to 15 inches) and comb height, sling swivels, rubber grips and recoil pad. When installed, it also free floats the barrel, imperative to ensure you milk all the accuracy out of your rifle.
