Masterpiece Arms (MPA) has announced the introduction of a new, ultra-compact rifle system to its rifle line. The new MPA BA Compact Suppressor Ready (CSR) Rifle offers sub 1/2 MOA accuracy from a compact, suppressor-ready platform that can be reduced to an overall length of just 27 inches.
“Our new MPA BA CSR Rifle packs a lot of punch in a small, lightweight package. It’s extremely accurate and suppressor ready. Speaking of suppressor ready… we think our customers are really going to like the buttstock on this rifle. I don’t think there’s anything else quite like it,” said Phil Cashin, president of MasterPiece Arms.
The rifle’s unique folding buttstock is capable of storing a suppressor measuring up to 1.5 inches in diameter and 9.5 inches in length inside a compartment within the stock. When the suppressor is stored in the stock, the overall length can go from 48 inches with the suppressor attached down to the 27 inches previously mentioned. The video above illustrates how the folding stock operates.
The new MPA BA CSR is available in black, burnt bronze, Flat Dark Earth (FDE), gunmetal and tungsten. It’s also available in either right- or left-handed models, and when purchasing, customers will be able to choose their preferred caliber, barrel length, trigger type/pull weight and color. All chassis and barrels are Cerakoted in a multitude of colors and patterns, with solid colors included, and custom patterns available at a $150 up-charge.
Each rifle is hand built and takes around 6 to 10 weeks to be completed. MSRP on the new MPA BA Compact Suppressor Ready (CSR) rifle is currently listed as $2,999.00.
