Kidd Receiver & Kidd Tang.


The longnose is out for testing, these will have the Kidd Rear Tang cutout standard.
We will be machining these to fit a Kidd Receiver & Kidd Tang.
Folks who have a Ruger Receiver & Kidd Tang, may have issues, and for those we will probably be making a special tang to fit, it all depends on how the Ruger Receiver was cut for the rear tang, and who/where/when the Ruger Receiver was made.
I have measured 3 from 1980-2015 and they vary by 1/32", which in itself is fine for a wood stock threaded insert, but not OK for a drilled and tapped hole.

I believe it already takes a AR buttstock, either way it's starting to look like my Zimmerman's !!

Could be done with an adapter of sorts.

You could make a variation of your lock ring that would accommodate the full size butt stock.

Just a suggestion.

Needs to be a little more than that on account of the thumb.
Thinking a 2"-3" adapter, it's got to work, and look good too.

Might be better to just make my own fixed stock.

yes, you could make your own stock, but that won't help people who already have AR parts that they want to use

I guess I better start saving money for this new chassis and a Kidd receiver/tang. Oh well sounds good to me.

Have you thought of extending the rear of the chassis back 2-4 inches to give more thumb clearance between the hand grip and the front of the stock?

With the 6 position carbine stock and receiver extension, it wouldn't make any difference. With the full length stock, it would provide the thumb clearance necessary for a comfortable fit.

Got an adapter drawn up, I think it's the best way, makes it retrofit-able to older chassis, and I wouldn't have to make a variation of all the types.

I'd be very interested in seeing what you come up with. I have a PRS I'd really like to attach to mine.

Just get the shorter Ace stock and use a rifle-length buffer tube.

I like the looks of this quite a bit.

What is the weight of the chassis?
