Heatseeker is an innovative, affordable chassis system for your bolt action rifle, allowing you to easily upgrade a traditional factory rifle stock for improved versatility and a sleek, modern appearance.
This 1lb, 3 ounce chassis is machined from billet (solid block) high-strength 6061-T6 aluminum and includes a 10 ounce, 14" handguard cut from a unique extrusion shape exclusive to Sharps Bros. Both the chassis body and the handguard are finished in a matte black Cerakote. The handguard features MLOK slots on 4 sides for various attachment options (light, bipod, night vision, ARCA rail...) and two quick disconnect fittings per side for sling attachment.
Add your grip of choice with Heatseeker's standard AR15 grip interface - we're partial to our Brazilian Cherry grip & handguard panel set (as shown in the photos to the left). Heatseeker's built in AR buffer interface allows you to further customize your rifle with your preferred AR15 type stock.
The Ruger American is a great, low cost, good quality rifle that is phenomenally accurate for their low price point. With Heatseeker you can easily and affordably convert your Ruger American short action into an enhanced magazine fed system. Heatseeker's sleek contemporary design will completely transform the look of your rifle, with no need to visit a gunsmith: our simplified instructions and functionality makes installation a breeze.
This Heatseeker model for the Ruger American is compatible with AICS short action magazines from Magpul and Accuracy International. This Magpul model is recommended.
