The Remington Model Seven is a compact and capable version of the Model 700 and a great basis for building a custom precision rifle. I ended up buying a few Model Seven receivers from Brownells for some upcoming projects. I needed a stock or chassis for each action- time to make a big decision!
Modular Driven Technologies (MDT) has been in the chassis business since 2009 with the introduction of the TAC21. Rifleshooter.com was one of the first sites to review the TAC21, TAC21LA, Light Sniper System (LSS) and Hunter/Sniper 3 (HS3) chassis for the Model 700 (we are actually still shooting one of the original TAC21 chassis imported into the US with great success). I’ve found their chassis to be well made, accurate, adaptable and a good value for the money. It turns out MDT makes the LSS and HS3 for the Model Seven as well.
Like the flagship of the MDT lineup, the TAC21, the LSS and HS3 use any standard AR15 stock and pistol grip, making it easy for the end user to configure a completely custom rifle well suited for his application. All of the MDT chassis systems use AICS style magazines, including the 10 round polymer magazine MDT makes.
When the Model Seven HS3 and LSS arrived, I was impressed with how the quality of MDT products continues to grow (flawless Cerakote work). I’ll be using the HS3 for an upcoming precision rifle build and the LSS (with a few modifications) for a bolt action pistol (FYI, per our legal team- you can’t convert a rifle to a pistol in the US, you need to build a pistol on a virgin receiver that was never a rifle under NFA).
The LSS and HS3 are priced right. The LSS sells for around $400, and the HS3 for around $500. To put the value in perspective, Badger M7 bottom metal sets you back as much as the LSS, and you’ll still need an entire stock!
I’ll be posting updates once I get these Model Seven projects underway. In the interim, If you’d like to read some of my reviews of MDT chassis systems, check out:
