MasterPiece Arms new suppressor-ready rifle (VIDEO)

MasterPiece Arms has introduced a new compact suppressor-ready rifle, the Georgia gun maker announced this week.

The key features on the rifle, referred to as the BA Compact Suppressor Ready Rifle, or MPA BA CSR for short, includes a hand-lapped barrel and a slot in the butt to store a silencer can that’s 9.5 inches long and 1.5 inches in diameter.

Also, when the rifle is folded it can go from measuring up to 48-inches in length with a suppressor attached to an overall length of 27 inches with the suppressor stored in the buttstock and folded/locked.

“I don’t think there’s anything else quite like it,” said Phil Cashin, president of MasterPiece Arms, and added that customers will really like the buttstock. “Our new MPA BA CSR Rifle packs a lot of punch in a small, lightweight package.”

The new CSR rifle also features a Remington 700-type bolt, a Trigger Tech trigger with a 1-3 pound pull, a AICS five-round magazine.

The company lists specs as a 16- or 20-inch barrel (depending on caliber), and weighs in at 8.6 pounds. It’s available in either .308 Winchester or 6.5 Creedmore and retails for $2,999.
