MDT is known for making high quality chassis for bolt action rifles. The company designs chassis for general use to competition. Now, MDT is releasing their new hunting chassis—the HNT26. This chassis is described by MDT, as their first purpose built hunting chassis.

The new HNT26 weighs in at an impressive 26 oz. That weight includes the chassis, buttstock, forend, and pistol grip. MDT claims their new HNT26 is the lightest chassis currently on the market. That type of weight is potentially possible when designed with magnesium and carbon fiber.

The HNT26 chassis is a complete hunting rifle chassis. The chassis was designed with a magnesium base for a lightweight chassis, foam-filled carbon fiber buttstock along with a carbon fiber forend and pistol grip to round out the system. For your system to work you will need AICS pattern magazines. You can buy a responsible priced one from Magpul Industries for about $40. The chassis is designed to have MDT’s own Polymer 3 round magazine sit flush with the chassis. That gives it a clean and sexy look.

The new HNT26 is compatible with the following bolt action rifles: Remington 700 and Savage short actions, Remington 700 and Savage long actions, along with Tikka T3 short and long action rifles.

Below is the product description and specs for the new HNT26 chassis by MDT.

Product Description

MDT Chassis Systems were designed for sports and tactical shooting. However over the years we found that our chassis were often used in hunting, especially our lighter chassis such as our LSS Chassis system. But we had never purpose-built a chassis system solely for hunting, until now..

The MDT HNT26 Chassis System is our first truly purpose built hunting chassis. This legendary hunting chassis provides you with all of the usual benefits that you expect from a rifle chassis such as v-block bedding, LOP and comb adjustment, AICS magazine compatibility etc, but weighs in starting at a mere 26oz (for our standard fixed version).

The MDT HNT26 Chassis is constructed of a magnesium alloy base, with a carbon fiber forend, a carbon fiber grip and a foam filled carbon fiber buttstock. With the increased number of hunters using ARCA tripods, we have included an option to choose a carbon fiber forend with an integral ARCA rail, as well as a foldable buttstock version for compact storage.

We truly value the feedback that you have given us over the years, and we are proud to bring the MDT HNT26 Chassis System to the market, knowing that this is a product that we have all worked on together to give you the ultimate hunting experience!

The specifications are as follows:
