New from Christensen Arms is the Modern Carbon Rifle (MCR), which was engineered to meet the specific demands of big-game hunters and precision shooters.

The Modern Carbon Rifle incorporates the company’s proprietary Flash Forged Technology (FFT) and Aerograde carbon-fiber barrel.

In addition to the Aerograde carbon-fiber barrel and Remington 700-Style coated stainless-steel action, the new Christensen Arms MCR sports a 20-MOA optics rail, adjustable TriggerTech trigger and FFT carbon-fiber stock.


With a weight of just 6.7 pounds, the Christensen Arms MCR is built around the venerable Remington 700-style action and sports an optic-ready 20-MOA rail and adjustable TriggerTech Trigger. The latter is factory-set to 3.5 pounds and offers a 2.5- to five-pound adjustability range, allowing shooters to optimize trigger pull weight to their preference.

The new Modern Carbon Rifle also has a detachable magazine, a hybrid grip angle and durable Flash-Forged Technology (FFT) carbon-fiber stock. Shooters can also customize their cheek weld by adjusting the FFT carbon-fiber cheek riser with the push of a button, while the length of pull is adjustable with spacers.

The full-length M-Lok forearm features an integrated forward Picatinny rail, while the skeletonized bolt handle and FFT carbon-fiber bolt knob help to reduce weight. Quick-detach points—both front and rear—also offer convenient sling mounting options.

The Christensen Arms Modern Carbon Rifle is available in multiple configurations with different barrel lengths and twist rates, ranging from 6.5 Creedmoor (22-inch, 1:8-inch twist) to .300 PRC (24-inch, 1:8-inch twist) and .300 Win. Mag. (24-inch, 1:10-inch twist).

Including a sub-MOA guarantee and a limited lifetime warranty, MSRP for the new Christensen Arms Modern Carbon Rifle is $2,399.99. It will be available for purchase in March 2024. Go to
