Some of you may remember last year when Christensen Arms released the Modern Precision Rifle:
Well, according to the company the MPR saw major success in 2020—so much so that they used it as the inspiration for their newest firearm, the Modern Precision Pistol (MPP). Christensen says they created the MPP for situations that require a lightweight, compact firearm such as backpacking or back-country hunting.
Here’s the description straight from the company:
Building upon the success of the MPR, the Modern Precision Pistol (MPP) is a purpose-built bolt-action pistol chassis. Standard features include a 20-MOA optics rail, adjustable side-baffle brake, and Christensen Arms’ legendary carbon fiber barrel. Available with a folding SB Tactical FS1913A Stabilizing brace and in a number of calibers, the Modern Precision Pistol is built to take pistol performance to new distances.
The new MPP’s standard features include: Christensen Arms’ legendary carbon fiber barrel, adjustable side-baffle brake, precision-machined action and fluted bolt, oversized bolt knob, 20- MOA optic rail, forward mount rail with an integrated barricade stop, 5-round detachable AICS
magazine, TriggerTech flat trigger, an ergonomic pistol grip, and retains QD and MLOK accessory attachment points. Combine that with a folding SB Tactical stabilizing brace, and the new Modern Precision Pistol is built to take pistol performance to new distances.
Check out the action:
“We are excited to offer this new MPP in a bolt-action pistol design. The intent was to offer shooters the same familiarity and performance of the MPR in a compact, pistol chassis system,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing, Christensen Arms. “This MPP has the same
accuracy potential and dependability as our field proven MPR’s, as they share many of the same features and components.”
