    Posted by Excellent chassis, some helpful tips on Jun 14th 2021

    I love the look and feel of this chassis. Solid construction, the mag release is excellently placed, the handguard provides excellent stability, aesthetic, and mounting options, and when using the recommended Magpul AI mags I've not had any feeding test issues (my 5&10rd Ruger AI Pmags do not feed properly, feeds too low and stops the action without slight modification to the mag).

    Something to watch out for however, the manufacturer's description is rather vague about what AR15 style stocks and grips are compatible, suggesting instead that you can use whatever your preferred parts are. For example, as per John Sharps himself, the chassis is NOT designed to accommodate grips with a beavertail. The clearance is fairly low above the grip mount as well so, bigger handed guys, you'll probably want a grip that doesn't naturally move your hand up too far. He specifically pointed to his Brazilian Cherrywood set or, "MagPul K grip, Hogue or Daniel defense" grips.

    For stocks, the built in system is much more suited for tube/carbine style, it does not naturally take fixed style stocks without the use of an adaptor plate like the carbine-to-fixed adaptor by MDT (my hand doesn't properly fit between the grip and this adaptor however. Also the tightening bolt with the MDT adaptor has to be shortened to fit your stock snugly with this chassis) so I would suggest something like the MDT SCS stocks or similar tubelike style to maximize any handspace you may need.
