From Christensen Arms, a new Modern Precision Pistol (MPP) “created for situations that require a lightweight, compact firearm such as backpacking or back-country hunting”. “The intent was to offer shooters the same familiarity and performance of the MPR in a compact, pistol chassis system,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing, Christensen Arms. “This MPP has the same accuracy potential and dependability as our field-proven MPR’s, as they share many of the same features and components.”
Christensen Arms' Modern Precision Pistol (MPP) – Four calibers available
Initially available in four calibers – 300 Blackout (7.5” barrel), .223 Rem (10.5”), 6.5 Creed (12.5”) and .308 Win (12.5”) – and weighing in at just 4.4 to 5.8 lb (1995-2630 g), the MPP is a purpose-built bolt-action pistol chassis. Standard features include a 20-MOA optics rail, adjustable side-baffle brake, and a button-rifled Christensen Arms 416R stainless steel aerograde carbon fiber wrapped barrel with target profile. Muzzle has a standard 5/8 × 24 thread (1/2 x 28 in .223). The barrel is also free floating, with a hand lapped match chamber.
The nitride-finished action features a TriggerTech “flat” trigger, oversized fluted bolt knob, skeletonized bolt handle, AICS-compatible detachable magazine and a tactical mag release. Ejection port is enlarged and bolt release improved. Looking at the twin-lug bolt you'll notice that it's spiral fluted and nitride treated, with an M16 style extractor (.308 Win & 6.5 Creed.). As for the 7075 billet aluminum pistol chassis, it is black hardcoat anodized and standard AR grip compatible, with V-block bedding.
At a price of $2295, Christensen Arms' Modern Precision Pistol (MPP) comes with a folding SB Tactical FS1913A stabilizing brace – until braces are allowed by Biden's administration, at least.
