WOOX Precision Rifle Chassis at SHOT 2020
Newcomers Woox introduced a new-meets-old take on the bolt-action rifle chassis. At it’s heart, the Woox chassis is made out of forged aluminum, but instead of adding polymer fore-ends and stocks, Woox opted for wood. The result? A solid, modern chassis with old-school flair and loads of European styling.
One of the standout features of the Woox system is its modularity. The various stocks and fore-ends can be interchanged quickly and easily. The current lineup features two different handguard options. These include a plain, textured model as well as a version compatible with MLOK-mounted accessories. Joining the forearms are three stocks. The basic version sports a traditional semi-pistol grip and fixed comb. Stepping up from that, the next tier adds a pistol-style grip and adjustable comb while the top offering takes these two improvements and tacks on skeletonization and fully adjustable length of pull (LOP). All models may be used with Woox’s spacers to increase LOP. As you’d expect from a modern precision rifle chassis, the system is compatible with ARCA rails.
The first Woox chassis models are compatible with the Remington 700 – both short and long action. Additional rifle platforms are expected to join the mix on a quarterly cadence. Prices start at $499 for Woox’s basic Wild Man chassis and go up to $999 for the fully adjustable, MLOK-compatible Furiosa model. Full chassis units are available on WOOX’s website, but individual fore-ends and stocks are still to come.
Woox also showed off their Rock 62 knives and AX1 axe. The AX1 features a carbon steel head and hickory handle. It carries a $229 MSRP. The Rock 62 series is available with walnut or micarta grips, features a Sleipner steel blade, and starts at $179.
