MasterPiece Arms (MPA) recently announced its newest rifle system, the MPA BA Precision Match Rifle. Billed as a “Competition Ready” rifle, the Precision Match Rifle qualifies for all Production Class requirements of the Precision Rifle Series.
The special competition-ready configuration includes several key accessories, an MPA BA Mount and optic. MasterPiece Arms packaged the items together to offer value with a total retail price of $2,999.99. Piecing all of these items together separately would hit a retail of $3,459, a savings of $500 passed on to shooters.
The MPA BA Precision Match Rifle utilizes the MPA BA Hybrid Chassis. The company machines the chassis from 6061 aluminum. The v-bedding system provides additional clearance for glass the glass bedding action and straight section of the barrel. The chassis also includes a built-in inclinometer, thumb notch, lower-mounted Picatinny rail, 20 MOA scope rail and A2-style pistol grip. The system also accommodates the R.A.T. System.
The MPA Buttstock comes with an adjustable cheek riser and length of pull that is locked in position with a series of set screws that are embedded into the buttstock body. This is the same system MPA uses on its Standard BA Chassis, but without the thumb wheels.
