Their in-house button-rifling process utilizes aerograde processes and specifications and their barrels.

Christensen Arms stainless barrels are precision machined to the industry’s highest standards, reamed and inspected to a tolerance of +/- .0001, stress relieved, and hand lapped to guarantee sub-moa accuracy. Every chamber is CNC machined using minimum-diameter match-grade reamers and optimized for accuracy and performance.

“The new Mesa [Long Range rifle] fills the gap between the Mesa and our dedicated long range precision rifles, the ELR and BA Tactical, and at a great price,” explains Jason Christensen, President of Christensen Arms. 

The Mesa Long Range rifle will be available on the US market next Autumn, with an MSRP of 1,595 US dollars.
