For 2022, Magpul took the most important elements from its Pro 700 rifle chassis and blended them with borrowed features from the company's PRS Lite stock to create the all-new Magpul Pro 700 Lite SA chassis. This simplified, rugged design built for Remington 700-pattern rifle actions brings many of the features today's shooters loved about both previous products into a unified rifle foundation that's lighter and more affordable than the original Pro 700 chassis.

Weighing in at just 4.4 lbs., the Magpul Pro 700 Lite SA rifle chassis starts with a billet-aluminum chassis surrounded by Magpul's polymer stock, which is ambidextrous and requires only the swap of a bolt-retainer plate for left-handed actions. The vertical grip built into the stock can be customized to provide different trigger-reach distances. You'll also find an extra-large trigger guard, as well as an AICS-pattern magazine well with a bilateral magazine-release lever and a built-in barricade stop on its front face. At the front of the stock are M-Lok attachment points on the sides and bottom.

The Magpul Pro 700 Lite SA chassis offers 0.8" of comb height and 1.4" of length-of-pull adjustments. There's an unobtrusive rubber buttpad that can be adjusted for height and cant. Each chassis also comes with an ambidextrous 1.25" footman's loop, as well as a reversible quick-detach sling-swivel cup and the option to add an additional QD swivel cup, too. The stock is designed for short-action 700-pattern rifles, and the integrated AICS-pattern magazine well is optimized for use with Magpul's PMag 5 and PMag 10 7.62 AC magazines, but the design will accommodate most other AICS magazines on the market.

Available in black, flat dark earth and gray, the Magpul Pro 700 Lite SA chassis retails for $599.95. For more information, visit
