Our Assessment: MasterPiece Arms (MPA) is an American firearms manufacturer that was founded in 1992 by Phil Cashin, who started the company in his own garage. The company initially produced high-end rifles and pistols for competition shooters and hunters, with a focus on precision and accuracy. Today the company has grown significantly with their success and has moved from a small production garage to a full CNC machining production facility.
In 2008, MPA introduced its first semi-automatic firearm, the MPA Mac-10 pistol. This was followed by the MPA Defender series of pistols and rifles, which were designed for personal defense and law enforcement use. These firearms were based on the Mac-10 design, but with modifications to make them more reliable and easier to use.
This Mac-10 is a beautiful example of what makes MasterpieceArms standout from a world saturated with AR’s and Carry Pistols. Please see our photos and good luck!
