Grace Engineering Corp., based in Memphis, Mich., announced it has acquired the assets and rights of Montana Rifle Co., which closed its doors in 2020 after more than 20 years in business. The new owners are promising two new MRC models will be available in 2024.

“When the opportunity to acquire Montana Rifle Company was presented to us, we knew it would be a good fit,” Grace Engineering President Matt Grace said. “Montana Rifle’s much-sought-after action design and highly accurate barrels have been well-known among avid rifle hunters. We are excited to continue the MRC legacy and take it to new heights.”

Grace is continuing MRC’s legacy of custom-built sporting rifles that use controlled-round-feed actions, though the latest models come with a twist. Based on the original M1999 action, the new M2022 design uses “adaptive controlled round feeding” that allows rounds to be loaded directly into the chamber while still preserving controlled-round feeding from the magazine.
