Masterpiece Arms Unveils New 6.8 SPC Piston Rifle at SHOT Show 2014
For some reason I didn’t realize Masterpiece Arms (MA) was based in my home state of Georgia. Might have to get in touch with those guys and see if I can swing by their facilities sometime and get a better look for you guys. You probably know MA from their line of MAC pistols and rifles.
Anyway, according to the press release below, MA has released a new 6.8 SPC piston rifle. Might make an interesting hunting rifle, or possibly even a tactical home defense rifle (although I’m leaning towards 300 BLK for HD rifles these days).
Here is the press release from MA.
The MPAR 6.8 rifle is a superbly accurate rifle with a short stroke piston design and a lightweight, two-piece aluminum handguard with user located Picatinny rails and QD Mount. The MPAR 6.8 features an innovative front handguard cap to keep debris out of the internals of the handguards and providing strength and stability to the assembly.
The MPAR 6.8 rifle will also contain a side folding 6–position polymer buttstock, locked bolt action and a side charging, non-reciprocating handle with forward-assist. The rifle also features a full-length top rail and a 16-inch barrel with a 4 groove 1:11 twist. The MPAR 6.8 will be finished in a durable, corrosion resistant black phosphate hard coat black anodized finish or an ATACS coating is optional. It will be made available for purchase in the first quarter of 2014. MSRP is $1103 with Vista Camo Coating and $1028 with Black Phosphate Finish
Disassembly will be very user friendly, both for access to the internals of the weapon, as well as the piston assembly housed in the front handguard. This gun is American Made and offers the MasterPiece Arms Lifetime Guarantee. MSRP is $1103 with Vista Camo Coating and $1028 with Black Phosphate Coating.
