My Oryx chassis showed up and I dropped in my Vudoo V22 to try it out. Took all of about 1 minute to install. I installed an Arca rail on the bottom, a direct mount for my tripod. I ran out of M Lok bolts so I used 1/4 in stainless bolt with a nylock nut. The nut fits inside the forend perfectly and holds the nut in place, no wrench required. I found the new grip to be very comfortable and is similar to an Ergo grip. A quick range trip to test it out and my Vudoo shoots great in the new chassis. I really like the ergos and design. The advantage of the plastic panels is apparent in the cold as it was right at the freezing temp.. The forend has a pre threaded 10x32 hole on the bottom and I installed a sling swivel to attach my bipod to. I'm also running a Tikka t3 in my 2nd Oryx chassis I had ordered and I really like it. I have used the MDT ESS chassis for several years now and I have tried the MDT LSS XL Gen2, but for the price point features and design, you can't beat the Oryx. It is going to be a big seller for Oryx/MDT!!. I'm going to get a couple more!!

Still looking for a left hand short action-is it simpler on the manufacturing side to modify for all of the different RH action inlets than set up for 2-3 highest volume LH actions? Seems to leave a pretty reasonable market segment without an option till all of the RH actions have been completed. Pressing a bit because I’d like a get a LH Rem700 SA soon as available, which appears to be six months out from list above.
Thanks for your interest in our products and I wish I had better news for you! The tricky thing with the Oryx in LH is that we have specific polymer side panels that were only made for RH actions to begin with. We may be able to modify the mold that does them, but then that would cause a huge backlog in RH chassis availability. The other option would be for us to create a brand new mold for LH side polymer, but the investment may not be offset by the amount of LH chassis that we would have to run to pay it back.

The absolute best way to see a LH chassis made in the future is to request it here: https://oryxchassis.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new. Without the requests, we can't really justify doing it :(

Also, thanks @ed99 for the kind words and review :)

No, unfortunately the inside of the forend is different and there is no m-lok on the sides.

The outside weights will fit the LSS-XL Gen2, ESS, Tac21 and LSS Gen2 however :D
Conceivably you could put some of the M-lok weights on the bottom. May not be the slickest solution though.

Disregard, I saw the CZ 455 listed as of May of 2019. Are there any talks of a possible chassis for 10/22 or 10/22 style receivers in the future?
Yes, we're on track to have a few more CZ 455 inlets available soon, and no word on the 10/22 style receivers just yet. We are always looking to provide what people want, and if there is enough request, we may be able to do an Oryx 10/22?
