God Bless Texas
A year or so ago my team mates and I met George and Bob from Texas. They were out here in Las Vegas doing some extreme long range shooting. My team mates and I were able to meet up with them and send some rounds down range. We were quickly impressed with their ability to connect with ultra-long range targets. George and Bob were also very knowledgeable about machining and building precision rifles. They have been building their own rifles just like us! We learned a lot from them that day and had a great time at the range. George and Bob are the guys behind Mirage ULR located in the great state of Texas.
While talking guns and machining, George mentioned that they were going to build their own rifle chassis. They want to incorporate a few ideas they had. The guys and I were very curious and looked forward to seeing what he came up with. It didn’t take long until I was getting emails containing pictures of their progress!
One of the things they wanted to incorporate into the chassis was placing the action as low as possible. Doing this lowers the center line of the rifle. The action is dropped down into the chassis about 0.5”-0.75”. This creates a lot of surface area to between the action and chassis. The chassis features aluminum construction, starting from the front of the action all the way to the rear of the stock. The hand guard options are also made from aluminum. This along with the barreled action low in the chassis makes it rigid and eliminates as much flex as possible. The low profile tube hand guard is slim for maneuvering barricades and port holes. The hand guard also helps keep mirage coming off the barrel out of your sight picture and protects your hands from a hot barrel. The barrel is free floated and the shroud is comfortable while tightly slung into the rifle during positional shooting.
With this chassis you also have the ability to change the hand guard to an open, more traditional hand guard as well as different length and diameter tube hand guards. Some shooters prefer the open hand guard because it allows them to mount their scope low and close to the bore of the rifle. Hand guards can easily be changed to accommodate the different preferences of shooters.
I have been using the chassis for two months now. I put my Remington 700 in the Mirage ULR prototype. I like the feel of the chassis, its light compared to others. I have been doing my best to offer feedback and help trouble shoot any issues. I did have to slightly modify the action to make it work with the mag well. I will include a picture to show you what I’m talking about. The rifle is shooting great and the chassis is growing on me. Since I received the chassis, George and Bob have made changes and revisions to the design. George will be sending out the latest rendition of the chassis and I will do a comparison.
Mirage ULR has their site up, right now it doesn’t contain a lot of information. The site will be updated as products they produce become available. I encourage you to give the site a visit and contact Mirage ULR with any questions.
