From Black Collar Arms . . .
The Black Collar Arms MBA redefines the Modern Bolt Action firearm. This revolutionary straight pull design is incredibly lightweight, fast, and accurate. MBA’s extreme modularity and elegant simplicity represent a significant leap forward in bolt action design.
A few key features of this sub-6-pound rifle…
Straight Pull: significantly faster and smoother than a traditional, turn-bolt firearm, the linear motion of a straight pull also keeps you dead on target. Eliminating the sideways rotational force required to unlock and lock a turn bolt means no fighting your gun to keep it level. No unnecessary hand movement, no unnecessary gun movement. Just fast, smooth precision.
Purpose-Built Action: MBA is not a manually-operated AR-10. We have engineered an entirely new operating system that provides powerful mechanical advantage for primary extraction and in-battery locking mechanisms with an ideally-placed bolt handle for the fastest possible cycling. MBA combines proven, readily-available components and mechanisms with simple, elegant designs engineered to put them to use in the fastest, slickest Modern Bolt Action ever made.
AR Modularity: The Modern Bolt Action is the most modular bolt action ever made. MBA’s upper and lower receivers plus the bolt carrier and associated straight pull action mechanisms are proprietary. The rest of the key components – AR-10 handguards, AR-10 barrels (with no gas port, or block the gas port), AR-10 bolt heads, AR-10 magazines, AR-15 triggers, AR-15 grips, AR-15 magazine releases, etc. – are readily available. Right out of the gate, literally thousands of MBA configuration options are waiting.
Two-Piece Receiver System: bedding blocks and recoil lug integral to upper and lower ensures rock solid, flawless repeatability. Easily swappable upper assembly allows for rapid caliber changes with sighted-in optic.
At launch, the Black Collar Arms MBA is available in three variations: MBA Rifle, MBA Pistol, and MBA Build Kit.
A complete MBA from Black Collar Arms is built with a matched bolt head and barrel extension mated to a match-grade barrel. Combined with our straight pull mechanism, repeatability and precision are par for the course. MBA delivers modern accuracy.
Or, go the Build Kit route, which includes only the required, proprietary components including the receivers, to use the barrel, trigger, and other components of your choice. The AR standard makes it easy and options are nearly limitless. Building an MBA is even easier than building an AR!
MBA is late in its prototyping and development phase. For more information and to place a reservation, please visit https://blackcollararms.com/
