American Built Arms Company Launches the MOD*X GEN III – LITE Chassis for the Remington Model 700 SA

Glen Rock, PA (June 18, 2018) – American Built Arms Company (A*B Arms brand) is proud to introduce the latest version of their best-selling chassis for the Remington Model 700 SA; the A*B Arms MOD*X GEN III Modular Rifle System™ – LITE.

The MOD*X GEN III Modular Rifle System™ – LITE is designed and engineered for military, law enforcement, and hunting enthusiasts. The A*B Arms MOD*X GEN III Modular Rifle System™ – LITE is a lightweight (1 lbs. 10 oz.), ergonomic, drop-in chassis for the Remington® 700 Short Action. It serves as a modular foundation on which tactical accessories can be added according to the operator’s needs.

“We’ve received constructive feedback from our prospective and existing customers who asked us to create a “scaled down” version of our existing MOD*X aluminum chassis,” said Jason Combs, President and Founder of American Built Arms Company. “They asked if they could just buy the receiver, hand guard and scope rail and add their own buffer tube, butt stock and pistol grip. We listened to their feedback and the result is the MOD*X GEN III Modular Rifle System™ – LITE.”

The MOD*X GEN III – LITE remains one of the lightest aluminum rifle chassis on the market today. Weighing in around 1 lbs. 10 ounces, the MOD*X GEN III – LITE will be available immediately for GEN III, either in its original version or the LITE version is your answer.
