MasterPiece Arms (MPA) has been in the business of making great bolt action rifles and chassis systems for years. They’ve just announced their latest addition to their line of chassis rifles – the Pork Chop rifle. This is a purpose-designed rifle for varmint hunters, ranchers, and those who need a rifle for herd management purposes. With the Pork Chop, MPA says that shooters can achieve longer shots with a rifle that can be comfortably packed into the most extreme terrain.
