The Evolution Rifle program from MPA provides an opportunity for consumers with existing Remington 700 (Short or Long Actions) or Savage (Short or Long) rifles or barreled actions the ability to send these in to MPA for a complete rifle Evolution. Here is the process:
- Send in your existing barreled action. MPA will remove the barrel (and return to the customer) from the action.
- We will “blueprint” the action including truing the face of the receiver and the lugs plus re-cuting the threads. We will also square up the receiver lugs. The bolt face will be squared and the bolt lugs will be lapped.
- Install a Spencer/MPA barrel. The barrel contour will be to the customers specifications along with barrel length (up to 27″). The caliber and chamber will also be to customer specs. The barrel itself will be one of our 416R stainless, button rifled, stress relieved and hand lapped match grade barrels. When the chamber and muzzle are cut, both will be indicated into less than .0001″ of runout from the chamber to the bore.
- Install in either our BA Chassis, BA Competition Chassis or BA Lite Chassis.
- Customer picks the cerakote color.
- Install a 20MOA Scope Base
- Options include trigger designation, cerakoting the action, addition of muzzle brake and bedding the action.
On the bedding of the customers action, heavy consideration will be given to the condition of the outside geometric configuration. If the action has issues with straightness, roundness or cylindricity, the action should be bedded. If not, the action will mate up properly with our v-bedding system used on our entire line of BA Chassis. Specifically, if the action is not round and straight, when its pulled down into the v-bed, distortion will occur, which works against the accuracy potential of the rifle. When the customers action is received, we will perform an inspection on one of our CMM’s (Coordinate Measuring Machines) to determine the actions configuration.
