Modular design and 40+ configurations possible: Christensen Arms had already announced it at the last SHOT show some eight months ago, but now the Modern Hunting Rifle (MHR) is finally here.
Built using the exclusive Flash Forged Technology that employs an engineering approach to achieve the lightest possible structure while exceeding crucial strength and safety margins, the MHR features an aluminum mini chassis with V-block bedding and “offers the accuracy of a chassis rifle while providing the ergonomics of a hunting rifle with complete modularity”.
The all-new FFT stock, forearm, and grips can in fact all be customized to fit any shooter or shooting position.
New technology for superior products
“With conservation being at our forefront, Flash Forged Technology results in greater environmental sustainability by saving energy and eliminate waste,” said Jason Christensen, CEO of Christensen Arms. “Utilizing automated processes and virgin recyclable materials, FFT is truly 100% zero-waste manufacturing without producing harmful toxins or emissions. This new technology helps support our goal of wildlife conservation by reducing our environmental impact and protecting our lands and wildlife for future generations – all while creating a more superior product.”
The Modern Hunting Rifle from Christensen Arms comes with a custom machined receiver, a 7075 aluminum billet chassis, and a 416R stainless steel aero-grade carbon fiber wrapped barrel fitted with stainless steel side baffle brake (removable). A 5/8 × 24 threaded muzzle allows for optional suppressor. Add to this a black nitride finish skeletonized bolt handle, FFT carbon fiber bolt knob, custom TriggerTech trigger, FFT carbon fiber forearm with M-Lok, QD and Picatinny mounts, interchangeable grip modules, adjustable FFT carbon fiber cheek riser, adjustable length of pull trigger, and you can understand why the manufactures claims that the Modern Hunting Rifle is “custom fit for any size and shooting style”.
You can have the Modern Hunting Rifle in three finish options: Black Anodized, Desert Brown and Tungsten Cerakote. Chamberings available are 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC and .308 Winchester, all with 22” barrels for a 43.5” overall length. The MSRP in the US is $3,499.99.
