Masterpiece Arms is jumping into the pistol caliber carbine game in a big way. Their just-announced MPA20DMG (press release below) features a machined aluminum lower, a free-floating handguard, a Cerakote finish and, in a very smart move, it runs on GLOCK mags. MSRP: $966 . . .
Comer, Ga. – (September 2015) –MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles, Chassis Systems, Defender Pistols and Carbines, Suppressors and MPAR Rifles, proudly announces its new MPA20DMG 9mm Carbine from the DMG (Defender, Machined, Grip) Series. The 9mm Carbine is based on the 930DMG Pistol but comes in a full-size frame with a folding stock and features a lower receiver machined from aerospace-grade aluminum.
“I can’t help but get excited when I think about this gun. We put a lot of thought into designing it and feel it’s perfect for people that need a reliable, accurate and high-capacity home defense carbine,” said Phil Cashin, owner of MasterPiece Arms.
The carbine comes with many next-gen features. The lightweight lower receiver is machined from aerospace-grade aluminum, giving it a lean and mean look and feel. The free floating handguard is produced from an aluminum extrusion with no fasteners and has an inner diameter of 1.570 inches. The gun comes standard in a “Burnt Bronze” Cerakote finish, giving it a toughness that allows it to handle any abuse or punishment that may come its way. It is also available in Black, Flat Dark Earth, Gunmetal and Tungsten. It has an ergonomically designed grip system incorporating a “Solidworks” designed profile that allows for the use of standard GLOCK-style magazines, as well as a low profile magazine release and “Decal Grips” grip panels that provide the shooter’s hands with a secure hold on the gun. The MPA20DMG Carbine features a folding stock with an adjustable length of pull. This carbine is further equipped with adjustable front and rear sights, side cocker, scope mount, barrel extension, hammer with disconnect (plus original hammer) and comes in an MPA polymer case.Specifications:Cal: 9mmBarrel Length: 16.2″Thread: 1/2-28Side CockerSide Folder StockScope MountBarrel ExtensionAdjustable Front and Rear SightsAccepts Standard Glock Style High Capacity Magazines (1 Mag Included)Coating: Cerakote (Burnt Bronze is standard color – other colors available including Black, Tungsten, Sniper Green, Gunmetal and FDE.Decal Grip Grip PanelsHammer with Disconnect plus original HammerMPA Polymer Case
