Modern Precision Pistol: Christensen Shrinks Down Exactitude

Gun News

An offshoot of Christensen’s Modern Precision Rifle, the Modern Precision Pistol offers extreme accuracy in a backpack-sized gun.

We’re all familiar with AR-pistols. Light, nimble and kind of cute, the shrunken down configuration has more than earned its chops as a hard-hitting option for close medium-range and CQ applications But what if a particular circumstance calls for a bit more reach or surgical precision than the popular semi-auto offers? This was clearly a question batted around Christensen Arms HQ, one in which the cutting-edge manufacturer came up with a fairly elegant answer.

Meet the Modern Precision Pistol. Essentially an offshoot of the company’s bolt-action Modern Precision Rifle, the chassis system sports an abbreviated barrel and folding pistol brace for an eminently compact firearm. At the same tick, it employs the same features of its big-brother predecessor to milk as much accuracy as possible out a particularly cartridge. Not a bad combination, particularly for deep wilderness hunters who weigh every ounce of their gear or backcountry campers who want a little more punch in their insurance gun.

So, exactly how light and small are we talking? In its tiniest configuration—with a 7.5-inch carbon-fiber wrapped barrel, chambered 300 Blackout—the Modern Precision Pistol tips the scales as 4.4 pounds. In context, that roughly less than two Government sized 1911s. Additionally, this particular variant shrinks down to roughly 14 inches with its stock folded, legitimately making it rucksack friendly. A rare asset outside of takedown rifles. Though there are larger configurations, a 10.5-inch barreled .223 Remington model and a 12.5-inch barreled 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester options.

No matter the size, the gun comes fairly well decked out. In addition to Christensen’s carbon-fiber barrels, the Modern Precision Pistol utilizes the company’s billet-aluminum chassis—the same one found in the Modern Precision Rifle. The system is solid, with a V-block that tightly mates to the company’s Remington 700 action and proves rigid enough for repeatable accuracy.
To this, the company adds a folding SB Tactical FS1913A brace and lightweight carbon-fiber handguard. This last feature adds to the gun’s utility, featuring a wide-flat base that takes to a support well. Though, it’s M-Lok compatible and has a forward mount Picatinny rail, if a bipod is preferred.

As to other notables, the Modern Precision Pistol is outfitted with a Trigger Tech flat-faced trigger, skeletonized bolt handle, adjustable side-baffle brake, 20 MOA Picatinny optics rail, 2 flush cup QD mounts and paddle magazine release. Speaking of magazines, the system is AICS compatible, making stocking up relatively painless and inexpensive. Which is good, given the pistol doesn’t come cheap. The starting MSRP on the Modern Precision Pistol is $2,200.
