Modern Precision Rifle

Sep 15, 2020 | Christensen Arms

The Modern Precision Rifle has had quite the year – starting off with a bang, it was awarded the 2020 Shooting Illustrated Golden Bullseye “Rifle of the Year”.  It’s fun to get awards, but what is more fun is handcrafting a rifle that is designed to perform for that special moment. You know the one – it can look a few different ways: that gentle pull of the trigger at the range that ends with a beautiful note that only a steel target can make. Or maybe for you it’s that moment you finally spot the animal you have been waiting in the blind for longer than you’d like to admit, and you don’t have to worry about whether or not your rifle is going to perform. All you have to do is breathe-in.. breathe-out.. and squeeze. For many people that special moment with the MPR has been gifting it to someone else. When you get to see the look on your loved one’s face as they open up that case for the first time and see the MPR in all its glory. Don’t you get shivers just thinking about it? No? Just me? Well, anyway..

See what hunters and shooters alike have to say about the MPR!

The MPR is hard not to love with its lightweight frame that maintains its durability all while providing an accurate shot – Sub-MOA accurate that is, and still only weighing in at 6.9 lbs. It’s the perfect companion for any hunting trip, and it is a head-turner at the range. I’m sure we can both go on and on about why we love the MPR, but instead we want to thank you for making the MPR what it is today.
