Aftermarket Bolt Action Rifle Chassis Legal?
« on: May 17, 2017, 06:22:16 PM »

Hi everyone, Im new to the state. I have a question, did some search but havent found any definite answer here.
My question is, are aftermarket chassis system for bolt-action rifles(Rem 700, Tikka T3, etc) like AIAX, MDT ESS legal in CT? Most of the chassis are design to adapt AR15 style buttstock and piston grips, does that make those chassis illegal? Or it doesn't matter because it's a bolt action?

Manual op, not a banned by name firearm. Put what you want on as long as you keep the mags to 10 rounds.

Legal, badass sub-MOA bolt action fun.  Just finished range trip with one of mine...

I think anything manually operated is legal. The Troy PAR is a sweet manual option as well. Nutnfancy claims it's a .5 MOA gun.
