The MOD X Rifle prides itself as being an affordable, lightweight bolt action rifle, which features the iconic Remington model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD barreled action. Not to mention, it was made entirely in the United States of America.

The rifle provides advances in the rifle chassis design that has already paved the way for future chassis design as they relate to increased modularity, decreased weight and improved affordability.

2. American Defense Manufacturing: UIC MOD1 LE-X ($1,700) and UIC MOD1 LE ($1,600)


The UIC MOD1 LE-X and the UIC MOD1 LE both utilize the American Defense Manufacturing patented ambidextrous control. The controls also feature a bolt catch and release lever and left side magazine release.
