MasterPiece Arms, manufacturers of the MPA MAC Line of semi-auto submachinegun-styled pistols and carbines, is pleased to announce the new MPAR 556 Rifle, which will be unveiled at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This new rifle design has been under development throughout 2012 and will include some serious features; including a short stroke piston design and a lightweight, free floating, two piece aluminum hand-guard with user-located picatinny rails. It will also include an innovative front handguard cap to keep debris out of the internals of the handguards while providing strength and stability to the assembly.

The MPAR 556 Rifle also features a side folding 6-position polymer buttstock, locked bolt action, a side charging-handle with forward-assist, and is compatible with standard AR15 / M16 magazines.  Disassembly is also designed to be very user friendly, both for access to the internals of the weapon, as well as the piston assembly housed in the front handguard.

This rifle is American Made and offers the MasterPiece Arms Lifetime Guarantee.  At the time of publishing, the MSRP is $959.00 and the rifle is planned to be on sale from the first quarter of 2013.
