This past Summer Masterpiece Arms was showing computer renderings of their first .308 chambered rifle. Today they had their official release of the bolt action MPA 308BA. The final model features their own MPA Tactical 6061 aluminum chassis with a Remington 700 type bolt design with a Stiller's Precision TAC Series action. They are also integrating their own Spencer Precision barrel after acquiring the company last year. What better for a precision rifle than the Magpul PRS Stock with a custom adapter integrated.
