Those who aspire to own our TFM are in search of something truly specialized. Driven by our decades of carbon fiber and custom firearms experience, the rifle is a unique product of our obsession with composite materials and the advantage they bring to a tactical long-range platform. For shooters who refuse to settle for anything less than the very best, the TFM stands in a league of its own.
The build begins with a Christensen Arms Carbon Fiber Barrel. The barrel is machined from a 416R stainless steel bar before being precision drilled, button rifled, turned down to an exceptionally slim profile, and wrapped in our proprietary aerospace grade carbon fiber composite originally developed for aircraft. This process creates a target contour barrel with a match chamber that performs at or above the standards associated with a traditional barrel, without the weight of additional steel. After the barrel is threaded, one of our Titanium Side-Baffle Brakes is added and properly timed.
Once finished, the barrel is combined with one of our purpose-built TFM actions. The action includes a 20 MOA integral rail to provide additional rigidity and support, is precision machined from 416R stainless steel, and is completed with a Black Nitride™ finish for a sleek look. The various components are blueprinted with hand-lapped lugs and paired with a polished two tone bolt while an adjustable match-grade trigger and our enlarged bolt knob are installed.
The firearm is then equipped with one of our TFM Aerograde Carbon Fiber Stocks in a natural carbon fiber finish. These gunstocks are hand laid at our facility by trained composite technicians to ensure an exceptionally high quality stock with the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio. The monocoque stocks are finished with full receiver glass bedding and carbon fiber pillars.
The TFM’s feature driven gunstock is one of the most complex models we build. The palm hook assists a shooter in establishing a solid seat against their shoulder, while the oversized vertical grip with palm swell and specialized flat forearm help secure a stable platform that provides the support needed for long-range shots. Both the comb height and length of pull are fully adjustable with the simple rotation of a thumb wheel. Accessories include a forend picatinny rail with integrated sling stud, and a single rear sling stud.
The rifle is finished with a detachable box magazine (compatible with all AICS magazines) which features an extended tactical mag release for ease of use. The barrel is free-floated to ensure superior accuracy and performance. All of these components, techniques, and finishes produce a unique firearm that is truly unlike any other in the long-range tactical domain. The result is striking—and those who choose to carry it turn heads in every contest.
The TFM weighs between 7.3 and and 7.8 pounds, with barrel lengths ranging from 16 to 27 inches, and is backed by a ½ MOA guarantee. It is hand-built in the USA and is available to order from any Christensen Arms dealer. Current chamberings include 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 308 Winchester, 300 Winchester Magnum, 338 Lapua Magnum, 300 Norma Magnum, 300 PRC, 338 Norma Magnum.
