XLR evolution chassis ?!

Recommended Posts

Anyone know who stocks these in the uk ?

I am in the market for a new stock to replace an AICS, Remington 700 s/a

 

I am interested in the XLR or the AB arms gen 3 , but as the gen 3 is over a grand, I'm not sure I can justify it

 

Cheers

Al.

£979 for the AB Arms stock from a U.K supplier.

The XLR from - although doesn’t have the barrel in a tube like forend would

Appear far better value. Depending on exchange rate and tax my initial conversion is £420

 

 

I know which I would be going with. Of course it depends on task

requirements. 99% of ukv members are clearly not military or police so there isn’t a true need for a full barrel forend.

Thank you ...

 

Being a bit niave , is there customs tax to add when ordering from Norway ?

I believe you would need to pay tax. It is hit and miss with Norway. Even so with tax at 20% you are looking st £500. Less than half the price of the AB.

It works out at £722 for the Evolution + tax - unless I'm doing something wrong ?!

 

The envy which has a different ( open ) fore end is about £ 588 + tax

 

But it's a massive saving on shipping from the US ... Damn this £ to $ !! In fact, damn ' quantitive easing' lowering the £ completely...

So you'd rather have a strong pound as we head slowly towards brexit?

As a British consumer buying imported goods, I would rather have a strong £ ..

 

But thats a can of worms/ side thread, that I am sure I, like others would be happy to discuss elsewhere- however as this thread was about rifle stocks, I would rather keep it on track

 

Thanks

Well, 

after talking to XLR in the US, they put me on to one of there dealers in Holland.

suffice to say that after we had a haggle,  I have now ordered the XLR Element chassis & the new XLR Envy chassis. I am unsure if the exact date of arrival as he is compiling 1 order so as to split the transportation & tax. 

Hopefully not long to wait !

Keep us posted. 
Hope the Holland option was a better buy for you - at least being within the EU it'll save on duty/VAT

Keen to get a chassis for one of my 70's at some point, but none of the others out there had the layout I was after until I saw the XLR models. The ability to add a folding stock conversion further down the line is a bonus too.

Hi, 

you can buy the adaptor from the 'get go' same as other rails & options.

i have 2x AICS chassis with viperskins & they have served very well for a number of years, but I fancied a change. 

I could not decide if I wanted the Element or Evolution, but then I see the Envy & really liked some of the features that they have included, like an Arca- Swiss rail , which will come in handy when I shoot off the tripod.

the Dutch connection has certainly helped on the tax / duty, I believe that Norway has similar deals with uk, but I could not get a definitive answer. 

All the best

I have the evolution I think.  Thr all alluminium xlr and absolutely awesome chassis. Much lighter than the aics and we'l made. I had to pay 166 tax on top and wait quite some time maybe 6 weeks to recieve once in uk as it had to clear customs. I bought it from - noray

I have the Evolution, Carbon and Element.

They are great stocks, light but strong.

I have 3 different stock variations that they offer, different roles.

I have always got mine from the states direct, but being trade get a better deal, my last order of 8 stocks came in 5 weeks.

Cant go wrong, enjoy.

Mark
