MasterPiece Arms Introduces MPAR 556 Rifle for 2013.
MasterPiece Arms, manufacturers of the MPA MAC line of semi-automatic submachine pistols and carbines, announces the MPAR 556 Rifle. MasterPiece will make these firearms available for purchase in the first quarter of 2013. This design was under development throughout 2012 and will feature some serious upgrades, including a short stroke piston design and a lightweight, free-floating, two-piece aluminum handguard with user located Picatinny rails. It will also include an innovative front handguard cap to keep debris out of the internals of the handguards while providing strength and stability to the assembly. The MPAR 556 Rifle contains a side folder six-position polymer buttstock, locked bolt action and a side charging-handle with forward-assist. The MPAR 556 Rifle is compatible with standard AR magazines.
The MPAR 556 Rifle is phosphate hard-coat anodized depending on the material used. Masterpiece Arms claims that 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 $959.00.
