    Lightweight takedown chassis

    Posted by Tom Seeto on Jan 16th 2020

    The PMACA lightweight takedown chassis was a perfect fit for my Ruger Charger takedown, and the OD Green looks great. I put a pistol brace and a sb tactical folding buffer tube adapter on it to make a very small package in a small backpack.

    Take down

    Posted by Kenneth McCartney on Dec 23rd 2019

    a lot of grinding involved - not happy PMACA Sales: I am sorry that you did not have a good experience with the chassis. We take back any chassis for any reason that is in like new condition for a full refund. A possible issue is your trigger group from Volguartsen. Not all of the Volguartsen trigger groups fit well. For a list of the receivers that will fit, please see our FAQ:

    Lightweight takedown chassis

    Like everything, except the fore end the channel for the barrel mounting block is cut .015" off center so the barrel isn't centered.

    Best takedown chassis available, period.

    Posted by Lesyk on Jul 25th 2019

    This is hands down the best chassis available for a 10/22 takedown and even more so for the ruger charger. The machining is excellent and the tolerances are tight. The receiver fits snugly into the chassis without any wiggle room and there are no burs or rough spots at all. I preferred the lightweight version over the regular as the cost is only marginally higher (especially when you factor in reduced shipping rates for the lower weight) and you have more options with the detachable rail. The people at pmaca, in particular Dwayne, are a pleasure to work with and went out of their way to accommodate any crazy ideas I had from machining a backwards extended rail to support a variety of foregrips, to back boring the channel to fit a suppressor on a 6in barrel. My brace and folding stock adapter attached with no problems and everything fits together flawlessly! Honestly, I'm not sure there are any improvements I could recommend over what pmaca has provided here. Excellent craftsmanship, materials and value that completely upgraded the fit and feel of my firearm. My only regret is not having pmaca cerakote the chassis themselves as their rates are cheaper than anywhere else and now that it's in my hands I feel like it deserved that little bit extra. I'll just have to get that done elsewhere instead but I couldn't be happier with this purchase or pmaca in general.

    Easy install, fantastic fit and finish , and looks amazing! Only complaint is the grips I had wouldn't fit. Make sure you've got grips with no beavertail and you're golden

    Holy Shitake Mushrooms did they exceed expectations!

    Posted by Kirk S on May 20th 2018

    Wow. I love the product. Straight up, it’s amazing. But the people at PMACA flat out ROCK! Trolling the website for weeks after I found their site, waiting for payday, I see the TD Chassis is sold out. Crud. Shoot an email to one of the contacts on their website. Not expecting a reply, first thing next morning a reply with the data they will be in stock on payday (sweet!) We exchange a couple emails about the product and i’m getting more excited about building my daughters charger. While in line to see Ready Player 1 I get an email. The chassis is in stock. My POC sends me a direct link to ensure I get it! During previews I annoy my daughter and get the order in. While previews are STILL going, I get the tracking number and shipping confirmation. Moments later I get a stand alone email from my contact, they let me know they saw my order and packed it personally! Now I wait the weekend. Monday it fricking here! West coast to GA over the weekend. I pick it up and open it in the yard. Wow, amazing work. Clean, no blemishes. Edges are perfect, and the charger just dropped right in. Tighten the nuts and my daughters pistol is amazing. We hit the range the following weekend. With a green dot she executes target acquisition speed drill (first time ever) and she is drilling it. 10 percent were bulls. She can flat out hammer with this (she is 12!) Flash fwd. some young ladies from her troop at the range. Her Charger was shot a lot, 600 rounds in 90 minutes and all smiles! THX
