TAC21 Savage Chassis
The TAC21 Savage Chassis System by MDT is a combination of benchrest accuracy, superior ergonomics and specialized design. The TAC21 Savage Chassis brings the specified Savage Models (see below) to the next level in versatility and modularity, with an instant improvement in accuracy.
The TAC21 Savage Chassis System is manufactured out of billet 6061-T6 aluminum, which has been hard anodized to mil spec type III for extra strength, and has been finished with Cerakote™ in Black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE).
The TAC21 Savage Chassis is engineered to minimize warping and distortion. The rifle receiver only makes contact with the TAC21 Savage Chassis on the V shape bedding and recoil lug area insuring the best accuracy and repeatability. The generous clearance on the foreend makes any barrel (diameter up to the receiver size – 1.350”), free floating.
Inherently the TAC21 Savage Chassis has a straightline design, meaning that the recoil comes straight back instead of making the front of the rifle kick upwards. This results in more accurate and quicker follow up shots. This also translates to a decrease in felt recoil and comfort.
MOUNTING AND COMPATIBLE ACCESSORIES
The TAC21 Savage Chassis is designed to accept any AR-15 butt-stock and pistol grip. The basic kit does not include shoulder butt-stock, magazine and pistol grip, offering the option to customize from the wide variety of accessories available on the market.
