It’s built like a tank, maximizes accuracy, is modular, uniquely mitigates recoil, and if looks could kill there’d be no need for a barreled action in it. It is the Cadex Defense Strike Dual chassis. Yes, I know, it sounds like propaganda. But seriously, when we set out to transform Grandpa’s Gun into a tactical long range precision rifle capable shooting wild hogs and other game at 1000+ yards, we asked “What does it take to do it right, to take this project as far as we can go with it?”
We chose parts that we think you’d want to use, and went from there. Starting with Part 1 of this Grandpa’s Gun Reborn project, you’ve already read about our selection of a Timney Trigger and Nighforce Scope. Now it’s time explore the Strike Dual Chassis from Cadex Defense.
Some context is in order at this point. This chassis wasn’t really dreamed up for revamping neglected old guns. U.S. Military Sales Manager for Cadex, Glenn Williams, tells me the Strike Dual Chassis was designed and built for professionals. Yes, it’s true that manufacturers in the firearms and related industries all seem to have consulted with Special Forces personnel on every tactical product known to man. This seemingly includes everything from rifles to tactical bungee cords. I have little reason to doubt the integrity of most, but in the case of the Strike Dual chassis, its pedigree is obvious.
