Lockhart Tactical is now offering a free little gift with every MDT order!
Please note, the LSS is the nearly identical to the LSS-XL chassis, except for two features:
1) The LSS-XL has a built in fixed buttstock adapter, where as the LSS chassis requires the additional purchase of the Fixed Stock Adapter for LSS - V2
2) The LSS-XL has a 3" longer foreend, allowing a bipod to be positioned further away from you, enhancing stability.
Our LSS chassis system was designed to be as compact as possible. The V-shaped bedding and free floated fore end improve accuracy and ergonomics. The fore-end allows for barrel contours up to 1" in diameter.
The chassis system is manufactured out of billet 6061-T6 aluminum, which has been hard anodized to mil spec type III for extra strength, and has been finished with Cerakote™ in Black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE).
To keep this chassis system compact, it was designed for collapsible AR-15 buttstocks, however fixed buttstocks can mounted with the use of a fixed stock adapter.

MOUNTING AND COMPATIBLE ACCESSORIES
The LSS chassis is designed to accept any AR-15 butt-stock and pistol grip (purchased separately), offering the option to customize from the wide variety of Accessories available on the market.

Mounting holes are spaced for Magpul style L5 (11 slots) and L3 (7 slots) rails (1.600” / 3.200”) to be used on the bottom of the fore end up to 6.5" in length.

WHAT YOU GET, AND WHAT YOU NEED
The LSS chassis system comes as a 1-piece chassis, with all required mounting hardware included. This includes new action screws, and a screw for the pistol grip.
To complete this chassis on your rifle, the additional items you need to purchase are:
Any AR-15 buttstock. For fixed buttstocks you will need the fixed stock adapter, or consider using our LSS-XL chassis.
A buffer tube for your buttstock. (Both milspec and commercial work on our chassis)
An AR-15 Pistol Grip. Ideally without a beavertail, or use a soft (bendable) beavertail.
At least one magazine
If you prefer a longer fore-end, please also see our LSS-XL chassis System or our HS3 Chassis System.
1) Howa 1500 / Weatherby Vanguard actions
This is the only action that we manufacture a chassis for, that has a flat bottom action. For this reason only our Polymer magazines will work. It will be a tight fit, and the magazine may need to be modified slightly for a good fit and proper feeding. For .223 models the bolt stop may be too long. This can easily be modified.
2) Savage models 10/110 11/111 12/112 16/116
For rifles with the bolt release at the bottom, the bolt release can be engaged through the side of the chassis, using a pin or tool. (Not included)
4) Tikka T3 - Long Calibers
Only our Metal 3.56 magazine will fit with the chassis for this action and needs to be purchased separately.
5) Savage Axis
The original recoil lug that comes with the rifle is required for installation into the chassis.
