Hickory, North Carolina – January 19, 2021 – WOOX has broken new ground with the introduction of the new Furiosa Micarta rifle chassis.

 The Furiosa rifle chassis were introduce in 2020 and quickly gained a reputation for accuracy, reliability, and classic design. Now in 2021, WOOX is introducing the first rifle chassis of its kind, combining aircraft grade aluminum and micarta.

Micarta components are made from several different resin systems such as epoxy, phenolic, melamine, and silicone. These resin systems can be modified through the use of various additives to modify their behavior. These additives increase the hardness, increase the toughness, and reduce the coefficient of friction.

PROS:

  • made out of some of the toughest existing materials
  • exceptional vibrational harmonic dampening properties
  • extra durable and stable in extreme environments
  • super dense material with no voids or air pockets
  • tougher than fiberglass but sleek as a wood stock

 Micarta is widely regarded as one of the toughest materials made. During the production process, sheets of material are impregnated with colored dyes and phenolic resin. These sheets are then stacked together to achieve the desired thickness and bonded into a single sheet under tremendous pressure and heat.

This process then produces a material that is impervious to cracking or warping. It also produces unique ergonomics with improved grip and never feels cold to the touch.

Weather resistant, the WOOX Furiosa Micartachassis cast off moisture, as well as most oils and solvents. An additional benefit is the exceptional vibrational harmonic dampening properties of the chassis material, which further assists accuracy.

 These new rifle chassis also maintain the timeless and sleek Italian design that all WOOX products have become renowned for.

 The WOOX Furiosa Micarta rifle chassis are designed and made in both Italy and Hickory, North Carolina. Available for Remington 700, Howa 1500, Weatherby Vanguard, Sauer 100, and Tikka T3 actions, the new Furiosa Micarta chassis have a retail price of $1,199.00.
