Christensen Arms expanded its product lineup in 2022 with its all-new Modern Hunting Rifle, designed to meet the needs of both hunters and shooters in a lightweight, sub-m.o.a. package. The design is also notable for its construction using Christensen's Flash Forged Technology (FFT), developed as part of the company's drive toward conservation.
“With conservation being at our forefront, Flash Forged Technology results in greater environmental sustainability by saving energy and eliminate waste,” said Jason Christensen, CEO of Christensen Arms. “Utilizing automated processes and virgin recyclable materials, FFT is truly 100 percent, zero-waste manufacturing without producing harmful toxins or emissions. This new technology helps support our goal of wildlife conservation by reducing our environmental impact and protecting our lands and wildlife for future generations—all while creating a more superior product.”
Each Christensen Arms Modern Hunting Rifle is built on an aluminum "mini chassis," which incorporates V-block bedding to isolate the barreled action from the chassis. A stock, forearm and grips are all added to the chassis and can be adjusted by the end user for a perfect fit or to accommodate different shooting positions. Sitting inside the chassis is a custom-machined receiver paired with a 416R-stainless-steel, carbon-fiber-wrapped barrel topped with 5/8-24 TPI muzzle threading. Each rifle ships with a removable stainless steel Side Baffle Brake attached.
Other features included on the Christensen Arms Modern Hunting Rifle are a skeletonized bolt handle complete with a carbon-fiber bolt knob, TriggerTech trigger, M-Lok, QD and Picatinny attachments on the carbon-fiber fore-end, adjustable cheek riser and interchangeable grip modules. Guns are available in black anodized, desert brown and tungsten Cerakote finishes.
The Christensen Arms Modern Hunting Rifle is available in 6.5 Creedmoor with a 22", 1:8"-twist barrel, 6.5 PRC with a 22", 1:8"-twist barrel and .308 Win. with a 22" 1:10"-twist barrel. Rifle weights start at 7.4 lbs. The suggested retail price starts at $3,500. For more information, visit christensenarms.com.
