I'm in the beginning stages of a build project. I have been looking at the odin chassis. I like both models and can't decide which to get. Suppressers aren't legal in democrat state so the barrel i want would be a carbon fiber style about 8"-10"long i guess so that it would look good in the chassis. I cant anyone other then volquartsen making a short carbon barrel.
The tac hammer looks cool although I'm not sold on the cantilever mount idea.

I think I'm gonna use a feddersen receiver that I have. Bad part is its chrome color. I was thinking of sending it to get powdercoated.

I just ordered a Franklin armory binary trigger.

With all that being said i wonder if its not just better off ordering a complete charger lite takedown and put a sb brace on it and call it good (after I put the binary trigger in it).
Being a takedown doesn't really thrill me. It wouldn't work in the odin chassis if i decide at a later date. Maybe I'm to hung up on the odin, idk.

Advise? See a therapist?

I didn't know Feddersen made a Charger receiver. If you have a regular Feddersen 10/22 receiver you can't legally make it a Charger. A Charger is a pistol. You can't make a pistol out of a receiver that was built for a rifle. You could apply for your Federal tax stamp and make it an SBR.

I know the charger is a pistol......i got the feddersen stripped receiver as an empty receiver, no barrel mounted on it. 4473 filled out as receiver, not declared as rifle or pistol. I would presume that would allow me to legally turn it into a charger. Just drawing from buying AR stripped lowers to use as pistol builds.
So you gonna tell me it's not the same?

You may build your Fedderson receiver into whatever you want, pistol or rifle, but I would suggest pistol first so you can then legally go back and forth from pistol to rifle at will.

In regards to a chassis system, you're the one who needs to decide if spending up to 2/3 the cost of a complete OEM Charger pistol on only a chassis system is worth it to you. The OEM Ruger Charger stocks offer either a provision for mounting a picatinny type brace or already come equipped with this option, so outside of just "looking cool" IMHO the chassis systems offer no real advantage - other than lightening your wallet.

Of course there will be those who disagree, having spent their money on a chassis system to prove it

What's your goal with this? Least expensive chassis? Lightest? Coolest looking? Best features? Most versatile? Best with a handguard?

I have owned 4 different chassis, and my 5th is on the way. I'm happy to offer some advice, but you should decide what you are trying to accomplish first.

Gotcha. I was thinking where you said that you were using a Feddersen receiver that you already had that it was probably built as a rifle.

Money is not an issue but yet I dont want to make a dumb buy and waste money. I want simple and light weight. Folding brace and angled hand guard or finger stop. Needs to look good.
I dont want anything with a AR buffer tube, dont like mixing 10/22 with AR components.

I would hardly call a receiver extension mixing components. But if you don't want a receiver extension, I think you're limited to Enoch Industries. Which limits you to SB Tactical or Sig for your folding brace. Unless you are willing to get a Picatinny adapter.

Summit Precision has carbon fiber barrels in different colors.

He can also make a short version for an extra $40.

I just saw him a couple of hours ago. So if you don't contact him, you'll make a liar out of me.

Emailed him and gave you a shout out for causing me to stopping overthinking and go with them.
