They sold their chassis design to MDT. But if you are looking to put your super match into a chassis you might want to reconsider that change. That super match you have is a fine rifle in a fine stock as it is.Good to hear (I'm new to this platform). I was pointed to this forum specifically to get information about chassis options for my M1A. The JAE100G3 is the one I like, but I read that they had gone out of business.
"Full Retard" is my middle name.Moses, before you go full retard on us here, that's an very pretty rifle to "improve" with a chassis. Why not hang on to her and get another to put into a JAE?
Thanks for sharing your opinion. That's why I'm here. I obviously have lots to learn.They sold their chassis design to MDT. But if you are looking to put your super match into a chassis you might want to reconsider that change. That super match you have is a fine rifle in a fine stock as it is.
I have 2 JAE stocks and a Mac. I consider The JAE stock to be the best chassis available. But I would never breakdown a supermatch to put into a JAE. Better to build another rifle , or sell the supermatch as is to build another rifle with the JAE.
Just my opinion...
Note: I'd go JAE100 if you have the funds, it is a worthwhile investment you won't regret- when do you see them used for sale ?Good to hear (I'm new to this platform).

Believe it or not, the Magpul copy- the Archangel in shape only- had to have a spacer fit between that "pistol" grip and the rear buttstock for it to be Cali-legal.I love the concept of the JAE stocks and I know they really improve M-14 accuracy but the "pistol grip" has too much rake for my and torsions my wrist into too much abduction for comfort. I know, too each his own, but it appears that the grip has that angle to conform to or at least resist the stupid anti-guns laws out in Kali.
My guess is that he meant Pro-mag and simply scrambled a few letters. Can happen to anyone.I didn't know Magpul had anything to do with the Archangel, where did you get that info , is there any documentation out there ?
The only real comparison of the two Stocks are looks . No comparison in price , that's for sure .
Wouldn't know how to test it, but it is advertised as...The "Archangel" is purely a POS injected molded flexi-flyer- it isn't even fiberglass reinforced poured nylon.
I have one on my the rifle I gave to my sister. I bought it off here. Someone for whatever reason, got rid of the whole "adjustable" length of pull on it. You can see where it's been cut and when I replaced the stock's buttpad you could see the plastic, it's grain, and where it had been cut- it appeared to be one solid injected piece of plastic. It did not show any evidence of being anything more than just injected molded plastic.Wouldn't know how to test it, but it is advertised as...
"carbon fiber and glass reinforced black polymer"
That certainly isn't the same as carbon fiber and glass fiber sheets laid into place and formed in epoxy, but for whatever it's worth, it is in fact way stiffer than the SAI synthetic stock. It's also substantially heavier than an SAI synthetic stock.
Surely it doesn't come close to what you can do with an aluminum chassis, no argument there, and I would never suggest it is even close to an equivalent to a JAE, and I don't believe anybody looking for a JAE would seriously consider the Archangel as an alternative. GI1
But on the original topic, I'm wondering when MDT might actually get them back into production. That'd be cool, no doubt.
I do appreciate the attempt to read my mind, but I didn't bother and couldn't remember which of the two purveyors of plastic crap did do it. It wasn't worth using Google Fu or Bing Fu to be absolutely correct.I don't think it was a mistake , because he used both words .
