Christensen Arms Introduces New Mesa Titanium Edition and Ridgeline Titanium Edition Models

Monday, December 16th, 2019

GUNNISON, Utah – (December 16, 2019) Two new additions to their most popular hunting rifle offerings, Christensen Arms has announced new Titanium Editions of their Mesa and their Ridgeline rifles built to be the most affordable precision titanium action rifles on the market. 

“For too long rifles built with lightweight titanium actions have been beyond the financial reach of most hunters,” said Jason Christensen, President of Christensen Arms. “We’re excited to change that starting with these two new products.”

The Mesa Titanium Edition (RETAIL: $1,795)  is the most accessible titanium action rifle ever built. The compact hunting rifle features a featherlight contour stainless steel barrel with a bead blasted finish, removable seamless radial brake, and a custom Titanium Edition floorplate. The carbon fiber composite sporter stock is painted with a new Metallic Grey with Black Webbing look. The special edition is offered in 308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, and 300 Winchester Magnum. It weighs in starting at 6.1 pounds. 

The Ridgeline Titanium Edition (RETAIL: $2,495) combines a precision titanium action with a Christensen Arms carbon fiber barrel at an impressive price. The firearm features a titanium radial brake, spiral fluted bolt, custom Titanium Edition floorplate, and a carbon fiber composite sporter stock with a new Metallic Grey with Black Webbing finish. The special edition is offered in 308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, and 300 Winchester Magnum. It weighs in starting at 5.8 pounds.

Neo-Retro: The 21st Century AR-180

Thanks to Brownells introducing an AR-180 upper receiver and Nodak offering the Spud NDS-1815 lower receiver, you can build your own AR-180 clone. This one was built by Frank Woods.

Tried to get it as close to the AR-180 I could in looks while also taking the newer architecture into account. I already had the stock and it looks damn near close enough to the original AR-180 stock while also being aesthetically in line with the M-LOK rail. The BUIS were chosen because they closest resembled the AR-180 iron sights in both height and appearance (yes, I know they’re backwards.)

I didn’t give it the Tiger Stripe layout treatment because I’m convinced Brownells has an AR-180 style AR15 grip (along the same lines as their AR10 and Retro A1 grips) in the works that they’re staying tight lipped about until SHOT. That’ll be the finishing touch on this otherwise quick turnaround of a Black Friday project.
