MPAR 556 Now Shipping

    MPAR 456

    The Masterpiece Arms MPAR 556 is now shipping and can be purchased from your local dealer.  For those not familiar with the rifle, it is a piston-driven rifle that looks similar to the AR-15.  Some parts are interchangeable with AR-15 rifles, such as the magazines, but running the gun is different.

    The MPAR 556 has a non-reciprocating charging handle on the left side of the gun that incorporates a forward assist.  A folding stock is standard on the MPAR 556, and the gun will fire normally from the folded position.

    The gun is chambered in 5.56 NATO, and has a 16″ barrel with a 1:9 twist.  The handguard is aluminum and allows the shooter to locate various length Picatinny rails at various points.  The gun comes with an angled foregrip.

    MSRP is $999, which may make it very attractive to someone looking for a piston driven alternative to the standard AR-15 rifle.
