Ruger American SA Chassis (fits all RA/RAP/RAR short action rifles)
Our Indian Creek Design Ruger American Short Action Chassis was designed as an answer to the most common issues facing RA owners who enjoy the phenomenal accuracy and low entry price of the rifle but would like something to address the flexible polymer OEM stock and the sporadic performance of the OEM magazines. Whether used for hunting or for ringing steel, punching paper or keeping your area's varmint population under control, we've got you covered. Our chassis is the lightest, leanest, and most modular of any offered for the short action RA rifles and as with all of our ICD products it is 100% made in the USA. Customizing your RA has never been easier! You can outfit your chassis as you see fit, making it mild or wild as it utilizes common AR hardware for the pistol grip and butt-stock. The possibilities are virtually endless!
The Chassis comes with buyer's choice of either the Slimmy or Tommy fore-end in one of the two standard colors, Matte Black or Gunner Gray. Both are done in Type III Milspec Hardcoat anodizing for an enduring finish that will stand up to the rigors of field use and look as good as they shoot.
Chassis Details Chassis weighs 1.6 pounds
Chassis comes with new 1/4 - 28 x 1" action screws with bushings, a 1/4-20 x 3/4" grip screw, SS action saddles, a magazine release and associated hardware (dowel pin, spring, and set screw), 1/4-20 x 3/8" fore-arm mount bolt, and a front sling swivel post on the fore-end.
The chassis uses AICS pattern external box magazines (.223/5.56* and .308) Magpul, AI, Ruger, and ARC AICS pattern magazines have been tested in the chassis. 450 Bushmaster will feed from .308 AI pattern magazines with minor mag tuning. *Note: .300 Blackout may not feed 100% reliably without a minor bolt modification due to the cartridge shape. This is NOT a chassis issue, but a Ruger bolt issue when used with the AICS pattern magazine.
Accepts AR collapsible commercial and MilSpec buffer tubes and buttstocks or a fixed stock adapter may be used to mount an AR fixed stock.
Accepts all AR pistol grips without beavertail (soft beavertail models may fit depending on the style/manufacturer).
Fore-ends come with mounting holes spaced to accept a number of pic rails. Of course, any "universal" rails with variable mounts on one end may fit. Threaded holes in fore-ends are threaded for 10/32 fasteners. Max Barrel profile is a straight taper 1.4" O.D. The chassis is also available in "raw" machine finish for those who would prefer to have their own finish applied.
