Building upon the success of the Modern Precision Rifle (MPR), the Christensen Arms Modern Precision Pistol (MPP) is a purpose-built, bolt-action pistol chassis. It is initially available in four calibers with a muzzle-threaded barrel in lengths ranging from 7.5 to 12.5 inches, creating an ideal suppressor host.  

“We are excited to offer this new MPP in a bolt-action pistol design. The intent was to offer shooters the same familiarity and performance of the MPR in a compact, pistol chassis system,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing, Christensen Arms. “This MPP has the same accuracy potential and dependability as our field-proven MPR’s, as they share many of the same features and components.”

The new MPP’s standard features include: Christensen Arms’ legendary carbon fiber barrel, adjustable side-baffle brake, precision-machined action and fluted bolt, oversized bolt knob, 20-MOA optic rail, forward-mount rail with an integrated barricade stop, 5-round detachable AICS magazine, TriggerTech flat trigger, an ergonomic pistol grip, and retains QD and MLOK accessory attachment points. Combine that with a folding SB Tactical stabilizing brace, and the new Modern Precision Pistol is built to take pistol performance to new distances.
