NEW from Christensen Arms comes the Modern Hunting Rifle (MHR) with Flash Forged Technology. 

Built largely using carbon fiber, the MHR is designed to be an ultra-lightweight hunting rifle that delivers all of the features you should expect from the latest and greatest rifles.

Built on an aluminum mini chassis, the MHR uses a V-block to bed the rifle and free-float the carbon fiber-wrapped barrel.

The MHR is also highly modular, with the FFT stock, forearm, and grips all customizable. 

Something interesting Christensen Arms is doing with the MHR is the use of “Flash Forged Technology”. According to the company: 

“With conservation being at our forefront, Flash Forged Technology results in greater environmental sustainability by saving energy and eliminate waste,” said Jason Christensen, CEO of Christensen Arms. “Utilizing automated processes and virgin recyclable materials, FFT is truly 100% zero-waste manufacturing without producing harmful toxins or emissions. This new technology helps support our goal of wildlife conservation by reducing our environmental impact and protecting our lands and wildlife for future generations – all while creating a more superior product.”
