The medium Palma stainless steel barrel mated with an adjustable carbon fiber composite, long-range stock, offers shooters a sturdy, ergonomic platform, guaranteed to perform.
Jason Christensen, President of Christensen Arms stated, “the new Mesa [Long Range rifle] fills the gap between the Mesa and our dedicated long range precision rifles, the ELR and BA Tactical, and at a great price.”
