The Mesa

6.5 - 7.3 LBS

A premium quality lightweight hunting rifle offered at an accessible price, the Mesa is a triumph in traditional steel. The firearm’s compact frame and lightweight features make it the perfect choice to carry deep into the backcountry. Whether your needs are small predator or big game there is nothing primitive about our entry level hunting rifle.

The Mesa begins with a featherlight contour barrel (#1, #3, or #4 depending on the chambering of the firearm) precision CNC machined from 416 stainless steel. This creates a sleek component that won’t weigh the rifle down. The barrel is then threaded and matched with one of our removable seamless radial style muzzle brakes. Once the barrel is installed on the action the parts are finished with either a Tungsten or Burnt Bronze Cerakote for a compelling look and added protection from the elements.

After finishing, the barreled action is then paired with one of our Carbon Fiber Composite Sporter Stocks built with a proprietary carbon fiber and fiberglass composite. The stocks are cured before being sanded and refined throughout the process. Bedding consists of a spot-bedded recoil lug in conjointment with dual Invar pillars. The original Mesa is offered in a black with gray webbing gunstock, while the Mesa in Bronze is matched with a green with black and tan webbed version.

Standard features also include an adjustable match-grade trigger and two sling studs, one front and one rear. A compact bolt knob completes the Black Nitride finished bolt. Based on the Remington 700 footprint, the Mesa is compatible with most regular Remington 700 mounting systems and accessories.

The Mesa is currently offered in nine chamberings with barrel lengths ranging from 20 to 26 inches. Select short-action chamberings are available in a left-hand configuration. The rifle weighs in between 6.5 and 7.3 lbs and is backed by a Sub-MOA guarantee. Hand built in the USA, the Mesa is available to order from any Christensen Arms dealer.
