The Modern Precision Rifle represents the best of our 25 years of carbon fiber and custom firearms experience. Each and every element was examined down to the smallest components to ensure that the firearm delivers effortless form and function. What makes the Modern Precision Rifle so unique? The proprietary ultra-lightweight chassis engineered and built by hand in the USA.

We began with one of our top-performing carbon fiber barrels to ensure the best shooting experience and built an adjustable stock around it. We threw out the book on traditional folding stocks and developed our new MAGNELOCK™ system for a simple transition. We went back to carbon fiber for the rest, with a custom free-floating handguard, adjustable comb and length of pull, and finished the whole thing off with a flat match-grade trigger.

A chassis rifle offers a number of features not found on a more traditional shooting platform. Modern Precision Rifle users can employ the infinite adjustment of the ambidextrous comb by loosening the appropriate bolts and selecting a new position. This creates a custom fit for the shooter. Length of pull can be altered in a similar manner, with a number of positions available along the adjustment bar to create a length between 12.5 and 14.5 inches. All adjustment bolts should be retorqued at 20 in-lb when any alteration is complete.

The folding buttstock reduces the length of the rifle by 9 inches, allowing for more convenient storage. Our MAGNELOCK™ system is designed for ease of use, with a smooth release button and a powerful magnet instead of a cumbersome clasp. Simply pull firmly to unhinge the connection. The chassis also features a standard AR-style grip installation, which allows for straightforward removal and substitution of a user’s preferred replacement model.

The Modern Precision Rifle is currently offered in 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum, .300 Norma Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum. All chamberings are available to order through any Christensen Arms dealer. The Modern Precision Rifle is designed to impress, and backed by the Christensen Arms Sub-MOA Guarantee.
