MasterPiece Arms announced the new MPAR 556 Rifle, unveiled at the 2013 SHOT Show. This feature heavy design has been under development throughout 2012 and features 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 will also contain a side folder 6 – position polymer buttstock, locked bolt action, and a side charging-handle with forward-assist. The MPAR 556 Rifle is compatible with AR15 / M16 magazines.
The MPAR 556 Rifle will be phosphate / hard coat anodized depending on the material. 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.
