Comer, Ga. (October 2019) – MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, is constantly working to update and innovate its selection of products for the precision shooting market and is proud to introduce its most revolutionary chassis configuration yet: the MPA Matrix Chassis. Built upon MPA’s highly successful BA Chassis System, the MPA Matrix Chassis was debuted on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019 at the 2019 Precision Rifle Expo. With a multitude of configurations in grips, thumb rests and trigger finger supports, the primary interface between the shooter and the rifle (the grip) has over 100 different variations.

MPA has developed a hand measurement chart to help identify which grip configuration may work best for each individual shooter. Additionally, the location of the shooter’s hand, closer to the bore of the rifle, provides even more variation in how the shooter can set up the rifle. The MPA Matrix Chassis features five different grip options (three swept and two vertical), three different thumb rest designs and four different trigger finger supports. It also has M-LOK slots along the side of the chassis forend and barricade stop holes along the bottom of the forend. The forend of the chassis is the same length as the MPA ESR Chassis, making it two inches longer than the standard BA or BA Competition Chassis.
“One of the things that we have seen in precision rifle shooting over the past couple of years is how many different methods a shooter used to engage a stock or chassis. Due to variations in hand size, finger thickness and length, as well as shooter preference on how they want to engage the chassis or stock, we’ve seen a lot of inconsistencies amongst the shooters in how they engage the rifle and where they position the pad of the trigger finger with the shoe of the trigger. This inspired us to create a system that would provide a more custom fit procedure for our customers by creating a chassis with more customized configurations,” commented Phil Cashin, President of MasterPiece Arms.
The MPA Matrix Chassis is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. The MPA produced buttstock comes with an adjustable cheek riser and length of pull, recoil pad with height and cant adjustment, adjustable cheek riser and adjustable monopod (monopod replaced with bag rider on Competition Model). The v-bedding system provides additional clearance for glass bedding action and straight section of the barrel if desired.
