From hunting to F-Class and everything in between, the MPA BA Hybrid Chassis provides a light platform that can be customized to the shooter’s needs.
Comer, Ga. – (February 2018) – MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, is pleased to introduce the MPA BA Hybrid Chassis. Based on the highly successful BA Chassis System, the Hybrid Chassis base weighs in at just below 3 lbs. It has been designed to give the shooter a variety of different applications in which his or her rifle can be used, whether it be for different hunting scenarios or for competing in F-Class (FTR), where weight restriction on the overall weight of the rifle assembly is a vital factor. Watch the YouTube video below:
“We wanted to come up with a chassis that had the footprint of our standard BA Chassis but was lighter than our BA Lite Chassis. We’ve extended the forend and have made it lighter. We call it the Hybrid because it gives the shooter the ability to utilize this chassis in a number of different applications and can also can be modified for weight by using our new Weight Tuning System,” said Phil Cashin, president of MasterPiece Arms.
For the shooter who wants to use all the many benefits the Hybrid offers for hunting applications, it provides the reduced weight needed, whether hunting white tail from a tree stand or blind or hiking deep into the back country. The weight of the chassis will not be a limiting factor. For the F-Class shooter, this ultra-precision chassis allows for more weight to be placed onto other areas of the rifle, providing the shooter with his or her desired accuracy performance without being hamstrung due to the weight of the stock.
The Precision Rifle Series (PRS) shooter can also utilize all the game changing technology MPA includes in the chassis design that has propelled MPA to the most used rifle stock or chassis by the best shooters in the PRS (according to the 2017 PRS Finale Gear Survey). One incredible enhancement that can be added to the Hybrid design is the MPA Weight Tuning System. This gives the shooter the ability to take this 2.9 lbs. chassis and increase the weight up to 7 lbs., as well as alter the balance point of the rifle assembly.
The chassis is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. MPA’s unique pocketing system reduces weight and increases the structural integrity of the chassis. At an astonishing 2.9 lbs. with no recoil pad, this unique chassis system provides a super precise platform for the Remington 700 Short and Long (and all deviants, such as Curtis Custom, Stillers TAC, Surgeon 591, Mausingfield, Kelbys, Impact Precision, Big Horn and many others), Savage and Howa Short or Long Actions, Tikka Short Action (T3) and Badger M2013. New inlets are being added frequently.
The MPA produced buttstock includes an adjustable length of pull, recoil pad with height and cant adjustment and adjustable cheek riser. The upper night vision bridge can be added as an accessory and provides a seat for a Picatinny rail. A matching rail is mounted to the bottom of the chassis, giving the shooter plenty of rail space for a variety of enhancements.
