Brand Spotlight: Christensen Arms

Classic Firearms is proud to carry Christensen Arms. If you are not familiar with Christensen, read on, as there is a lot to like about this Manufacturer. In an industry where credentials are essential to establishing your product quality, Christensen Arms earned the 2020 Shooting Illustrated Golden Bullseye "Rifle of the Year" for its Modern Precision Rifle.

Christensen Arms incorporates technology from a background of manufacturing composites for the medical and aerospace industries. The Company, established in 1995,  hails from Utah and manufactures bolt action rifles and modern sporting rifles. They also produce a line of 1911 pistols. 


Christensen's carbon fiber barrels stand out as a feature that puts their rifles in their own distinguished class. With current and future trends of firearms manufacturing focusing on lighter weight, and of course accuracy, Christensen stands proud in these specific areas.

Carbon fiber barrel manufacturing is a process of wrapping the material around a very thin stainless steel inner barrel. This process allows the material to bulk up the barrel and defer heat; " adding strength and shedding heat". You still get the bulk of a substantial barrel, except that it has the weight of a much smaller one.

As for accuracy, Christensen offers an Accuracy Guarantee. Their guarantee is that certain accuracy specifications are met before it leaves their facility. Tolerance of the rifling for the carbon fiber barrels is inspected to .0001 inches.

Sub-MOA Guarantee

Christensen Sub-MOA guarantees a 3 shot group within 1 MOA, Half MOA guarantee for 3 shots inside half MOA for rifles and 2 inches, 5 shot group at 25 yards for their handguns.

The definition of MOA can get lengthy and technical, but the skinny of it is "MOA is defined as the "Minute Of Angle," which is a unit of angular measurement. When the accuracy of a gun is given in minutes of angle, it is possible for a person to know approximately what size groups the gun shoots within its effective range" as stated by Rifle Shooter Magazine.

An example is: If you are shooting a Sub-MOA rifle out to 1,000 yards, your rifle has the capability to hit a target that is at least 10" in size.
