This rifle is not your daddy’s Model 700. The Christensen Arms MHR (Modern Hunting Rifle) takes the latest manufacturing methods and components, blended into a high-end take on the contemporary hunting rifle. The MHR comprises a high-end hunting build, bringing the latest and greatest build concepts into an exciting, if expensive, package.
The MHR features an aluminum mini chassis system. It utilizes V-block bedding to offer the most accuracy potential in several proven cartridges. Meanwhile, Christensen Arms paid attention to ergonomics in a completely modular platform. The FFT stock, forearm and grip all deliver customization for shooter fit or positional shooting.
“With conservation being at our forefront, Flash Forged Technology results in greater environmental sustainability by saving energy and eliminate waste,” said Jason Christensen, CEO of Christensen Arms. “Utilizing automated processes and virgin recyclable materials, FFT is truly 100% zero-waste manufacturing without producing harmful toxins or emissions. This new technology helps support our goal of wildlife conservation by reducing our environmental impact and protecting our lands and wildlife for future generations – all while creating a more superior product.”
The MHR platform includes a custom machined receiver and black Nitride Finish Skeletonized Bolt Handle with FFT Carbon Fiber Bolt Knob. A Custom TriggerTech Trigger provides a clean break and adjustable length of pull. The entire unit sits in a 7075 aluminum billet chassis system. An FFT Carbon Fiber Forearm with M-LOK attachment, QD slots and Picatinny mounts provide extreme utility.
The 416R Stainless Steel Aero-grade Carbon Fiber Wrapped Barrel comes fitted with a removable Stainless Steel Side Baffle Brake. The barrel includes 5/2×24 threads for suppressor attachment.
