First Photo of MasterPiece Arms MPAR 556

    The first photo of MasterPiece Arms’ new semi-automatic rifle, MPAR 556 has been published by the company.

    The rifle is chambered in 5.56mm NATO, has a short stoke action and uses standard AR-15 magazines. The stock is both collapsable and can be folded to the side. The side charging handle can be used as a forward assist.

    The MPAR will have an MSRP of $959. This pricing is competitive with budget AR-15 such as the Mossberg MMR 556 (MSRP of $921). Its advantages over a budget AR-15 would be the muzzle brake, side folding stock and side charging handle. Its main disadvantages would be incompatibility with wide range of upgrade parts for AR-15s.
