Mdt Proof Research Chassis Rifle New 2021 F

PROOF Research partnered with Modular Driven Technologies to produce a precision rifle designed to excel in long-range competition shooting. The new PROOF MDT Chassis Rifle is the result of this partnership, with both companies bringing their match-winning components together in one dedicated platform loaded with features.

At the core of the PROOF MDT Chassis Rifle is the chassis itself, which is finished with PROOF Research colors. The design features an adjustable length-of-pull and comb height, along with a full-length Arca rail running down the bottom of the fore-end. M-Lok mounting points make it easy to attach additional accessories, as well as weights to change the gun's balance. The chassis is compatible with AICS-pattern magazines, and a 12-round magazine ships with the gun.

Sitting inside the chassis is a Zermatt Arms TL3 action, which is paired with PROOF's all-steel, competition contour barrel. The barrel is topped with an Area 419 Hellfire muzzle brake. Completing the action is a Triggertech Pro Curved Diamond trigger, featuring an adjustable pull weight ranging from 4 to 32 ozs. The PROOF Research MDT Chassis Rifle is available in .223 Rem., 6 mm ARC, 6 mm Dasher, 6 mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win. Suggested retail pricing on the rifle is $5,699.
