    I don't have any affiliation or acquaintance with any of these places, just a shooter like you. But I did research both of these chassis systems for a folding LH Tikka quite a bit, and talked to reps on the phone from both places.

    It's definitely worth talking to XLR, ask them some of the details about the chassis, for example the design of their folder if that's important to you (how it works with the bolt when folded--lots of folding chassis don't have a good setup for that). Also, they told me they will in July be releasing a new chassis that will be even lighter, updated, and with more modular options to sort of mix and match what you need, and expand the chassis later for different types of shooting. I was super interested in their "Carbon" chassis--my favorite LH Tikka option I've seen yet up to this point--but the new one sounded so cool, I decided to wait a couple weeks and see what it looks like before I buy anything.

    Just my 0.02--which you asked for :-)--I think the overall reputation and features of the XLR, and their forthcoming new one, are really worth considering for a LH Tikka. If there's any chance you could check around at your local range, maybe even attend a PRS match and get your hands on one to try it out, I'd sure give it a look. I'm trying to do the same thing, no luck finding a local owner of one yet.

    Thanks, I appreciate you sharing your research.

    Yeah, a folding stock is a big deal for me due to storage and transportation, so I'll want a good setup there. I'm in no big rush so I'll wait and see what else XLR is brings to the table. Thanks for the heads up.

    I ran into this one...MPA BA Chassis and was wondering if anyone used it and what they think it?

    It's worth noting an update to this thread, for anyone still searching for LH chassis options: XLR industries has just come out with a big update to their Element line of chassis (it's now the 3.0 version) that will be welcome for LH shooters. They are made ambidextrous by default and the design makes it easy to configure the stock for LH or RH use, somewhat similar in principle to what Magpul did with their ambi R700 chassis. This of course would make it easy to re-sell the stock later, to any-handed shooter, as well. The chassis can also accommodate their folding adapter, and even in the most basic configuration of the chassis (the aluminum version, the basic buttstock, and a folding adapter), the total weight will come in right at about 3 pounds. You can spend more for exotic materials and go lighter. They also have various cerakote options.

    I ordered one for a Tikka, which may be of interest to the OP. I got the most basic aluminum chassis, buttstock, and folding stock adapter, which is a smidge over $700 but that's actually well under a typically configured Manners/Mcmillan these days, and I can get it in about 3 weeks (versus 5-7 months), and it won't require bedding. I still like my Manners on my R700 too, but the chassis definitely has it uses.

    All in all, looks like a cool offering. Look forward to getting mine.

    I have two. One is an MPA 6.5 CM built rifle in a BA chassis. The other is a Tikka CTR 6.5 CM in an MPA Tikka chassis. I'm very happy with both of them.

    Good info here. I wish there was a left hand heavy barrel option from Tikka.
