The Precision Rifle Series – All five models in detail
The new MPA precision rifle
in 6mm and 6.5mm Creedmoor, as well as .223 Rem., .308 Win. and 6.5 PRC,
offers many competition-related features for that price. The Curtis Short Action with 60 degree bolt throw is coupled to a button-rifled,
hand-lapped "X-Caliber" match barrel
made from stainless steel, with a 24" or 26" length depending on the caliber. The rifle is based on the
MPA Competition light alloy chassis
with a versatile adjustable buttstock and a pistol grip and is fed by AICS-type magazines.
Other interesting features: match trigger, V-bedding system in the chassis, long dovetail rail on the underside of the hand guard for additional equipment, built-in inclinometer to avoid canting errors, extended lower mounted chassis rail ideal for bipod mounting (V4 spigot mount), 20 MOA scope rail, RAT-system compatible. RAT stands for "Rapid Adjustment Technology", which means that the shooter can quickly and individually adjust the additional equipment (bipod, tripod, barricade stop, etc.) depending on the shooter's position. A muzzle brake, rotating barricade stop and 2 round holder, data card holder and shooting bag are also standard equipment. The rifle is available in black or grey Cerakote finish. Price in the USA: 2499.99 USD.
BA PMR Pro models by MPA: our assessment
The BA PMR PRO, a trendy high-end rifle for a relatively young and exciting discipline, is not only visually but also technically very appealing. The innovative caliber 6.5 Creedmoor, in which the rifle is also chambered, in particular plays an important role at longer ranges. We expect to hear a lot more from the MasterPiece Arms brand in the coming years – not only in the US, but also in Europe. Follow us here on all4shooters.com.
