MasterPiece Arms (MPA) Adds a Stainless Barrel Rifle to its MPA BA Hunter Rifle Line
The MPA BA Hunter Rifle – SS (Stainless Barrel) brings MPA’s technically superior chassis design and precision accuracy capabilities to the long-range precision hunter seeking an entirely new level of performance.
Comer, Ga. (January 2020) – MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, have added a third rifle to its MPA BA Hunter Rifle line, the MPA Ultra Lite Hunter Rifle – SS (Stainless Barrel).MPA has honed their skills within the long-range precision rifle market for several years, becoming the number one chassis of the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) since 2016, and introduced their technically superior chassis design and precision accuracy capabilities to the hunting market earlier this year at the 2019 SHOT Show with the introduction of the MPA Ultra Lite Hunter Rifle – CF (Carbon Fiber) and the MPA Hybrid Hunter – CF/SF (Carbon Fiber/Side Folder). It’s latest addition to its Hunter Rifle line utilizes a stainless barrel and comes in at a lower price point than its carbon fiber barrel brothers. MPA’s bolt action precision rifles, designed with the hunter in mind, provide long-range precision hunters an entirely new level of performance not seen in this market.
Weighing in at just 7.5 lbs. (20” #3 Profile Stainless Barrel), the MPA Ultra Lite Hunter Rifle – SS (Stainless Barrel) is purpose-designed for lightweight hunting applications. MPA can fine-tune the build to the user’s specific application. From caliber selection, chamber dimensions, barrel length, contour, twist rate, and chassis finishing, MPA can design a rifle to meet any hunter’s long-range precision application.
The MPA Ultra Lite Hunter Rifle – SS utilizes the MPA BA Ultra Lite Chassis, which is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. The v-bedding system provides additional clearance for glass bedding action and straight section of the barrel. The chassis also includes a built-in inclinometer, thumb notch, lower mounted Picatinny Rail and spigot mount. It is equipped with a RAT (Rapid Adjustment Technology) 1.5” Dovetail Rail (tripod direct attachment) and an MPA Enhanced Vertical Grip (EVG) or A2 Grip (customer choice). The MPA Buttstock comes with an adjustable cheek riser, length of pull and bag rider. Multiple colors are available for the Cerakote® finish. The rifle is also available with a folding or non-folding stock.
The MPA Ultra Lite Hunter Rifle – SS includes a precision gun drilled, reamed and honed MPA 416 Stainless Hand Lapped Barrel, chambered by MPA (Zero Runout system). The barrel is pull button rifled and the chamber is indicated within 0.0001” or less to the bore of the rifle. It is a #3 Contour Standard, but others are available (could affect the rifle weight). It is a crowned barrel that can be threaded but would require going to a #5 Contour at a minimum.
