As I suspected this chassis is going to be good as a race gun super light and agile .I'm not much of a hunter ,but I would imagine it would be good for that as well .I agree with others that a longer chassis would be better for the bench .As this sits right now it is super light and agile its it's going to be fast.

I weighed this rifle to the best of my ability first getting on a scale getting my weight then getting on the scale with the rifle . I'm not sure how accurate this method is ,but I don't have a scale that could measure the rifle on it's own. I'm coming up with around 5 pounds with a 10 round magazine inserted. Even if its off a little it's still extremely light I plan on shooting some steel this week.

Wow, that is pretty light
Ive got a Lb/Oz produce scale from a thrift shop that works a treat for such stuff. Or, hang it on a fish scale secured on the rafter.

Not as light as I figured it would be. Stock receiver, Tacsol barrel, C-more Railway, and a Hogue Thumbhole and I'm just under 5lbs. Figured this setup to be closer to 4lbs but was wrong. Either way, 5.5 works just fine. I can't hit anything with a super light rifle.

I was excited when my Kidd came in at 5 -1/2 pounds .Then my buddy told me that was heavy his Hogue stock, Ruger receiver and a carbon fiber barrel came in at 4-1/2 pounds I didn't believe it .Then I read your post ,I guess it could be true

For any who've tried the Kidd chassis with a conventional non-tang 10/22 action, I'd be super curious to hear:

1. How would you compare Kidd's rear-tang filler vs the Titan stock with the new spike? For the purpose of anchoring your action, which is better executed?

2. What kind of accuracy are you seeing with the Kidd chassis?

ETA: I'm about to buy a stock for my heavy barreled 10/22, looking at the Titan + spike or Kidd + rear tang filler.

Is there any reason in theory that a LAW tactical folding device would not work with this, since it's a standard milspec buffer tube and castle nut combo?

Not a huge demand for me to have a folding stock--and I already have one of the older Choate folders that works--but could be a nice add if somebody SBR's their 10/22 and wants to make a super compact stored setup without needing a takedown.

I do not have a KIDD chassis, just a PMACA.

Folders work well with the chassis as evinced by some of the Charger builds.

Regarding the solidness, the aluminum chassis would more solid than synthetics obviously.

Had a Titan and I did not like it--barrel channel is too wide, but some people seem to like them.

I am very conscious when it comes to aesthetics so I sold it right away.

Hey for anyone planning to get one of these, I was researching a bit more today, an additional thought on buttstocks (didn't read whole thread, so maybe somebody mentioned already).

If you shoot with a larger objective scope or taller mounts, you might want to use some kind of raised comb option. If you get the only stock that Kidd makes available with the chassis (Mapgul ACS-L), that one cannot accept the Magul cheek riser add-ons: those will only fit on the MOE and CTR base-model stocks.

So....I'm thinking to get a CTR stock instead of the one Kidd offers, then I can use the Magpul risers to give me a little more comb height.

So I got my Kidd chassis and mounted. A few details on things I decided to try:

1. FDE colored Magpul K2+ grip, and CTR stock. Kidd only sells black, and they told me they have no plans to offer FDE. I wanted FDE, so I got these.

2. About the CTR stock: Kidd only sells the ACS-L stock with it, that stock will *not* take the Magpul cheek risers like this one. The MOE and CTR will, so I went with a CTR. I will eventually add a riser.

3. About the Magpul MOE K2+ grip. Kidd offers the MOE K grip (without the beavertail) in black only as noted. However you can get the MOE K in FDE, and I plan to. I had an unused MOE K2+ (with beavertail) lying around, so temporarily until I get a K2, I just removed the beavertail. Probably won't win a beauty contest for fit-n-finish, but it works. :-)

4. The Magpul Mlok bipod mounts nicely on this chassis, as has been noted.

5. The weight of the entire rifle--with Green Mountain heavy 18" barrel, chassis, bipod, and the Ocular 4-16x scope--is 8.4 lbs. If I lose the bipod and drop to a lighter Leupold 2-7x scope, I'll be right about 7 lbs.

Other notes:
* Chassis is indeed well made. Love the set screw in the back that you can use to anchor the rear of the OEM action. Not an engineer here, just a question, I wonder if that kind of 'spike' on the tip of the set screw is really the best way to hold the action in place. I have to assume they tested different options and that was the best way they found to keep the factory action from moving at the rear.

* I agree with those who've complained about the infamous 'gap' between rear of trigger guard and the pistol grip. I tried to wedge a Nordic 22 gap filler that is made for that very purpose on a Nordic chassis, but unfortunately, not big enough. I am really surprised that Kidd--who normally pays a lot of attention to aesthetics and fit-n-finish as well as just quality engineering--would release this chassis without at least offering something like a $10 add-on part that is prefit to fill that gap. It's not a big deal in the grand scheme, but it's annoying.

* Overall: glad I got it and have not had any stock or chassis to date that I've liked as well for features, fit, and adjustability, with this heavy barreled, threaded 10-22 that was done by CPC as my 'precision' 10-22. Now I need to get out and shoot it!
