Christian arms ??

One of my best friends picked one up in 26 nosler and he literally loves the gun. Any members have any input on their rifles ? Are they worth the money ?

I have my eyes on their level 450 bushmaster boy it does look sweet

Thank you all

They make excellent products! can't say enough good about the products.
I have personal experience with Mesa in 6.5 Creedmoor, ELR 300 WIN and 338 Lapua, and the 338 MPR.

I don't really trust the carbon fiber barrel hype, but the Mesa's seem like a nice rifle.

They use them on the Gunwerks and everything now. I gotta say they are proven.

Think a minute, why a good rifle in a 200 yd cartridge. Get a Ruger American if you want a 450. Then get a Christian Arms in a caliber that you can actually gain an advantage with a finer rifle. I hunt Mich., the 450 is a fine 200 yd round . Just a thought .

I handled a mesa at the shop and it felt so good in the hands. I've heard nothing but good about them. I just can not bring myself to actually hunt with a $1200 rifle. I'd rather buy a No.1 for $1200 and put it in the safe.

I agree.

I was going to buy a 450 for a nasty weather gun until I talked myself out of it. I did a lot of research and the Ruger was the winner. It was accurate, light, no wood and a great value. If I change my mind I will buy the Ruger.

The Christian Arms rifles I looked at were beautiful guns but I'm not going to spend that kind of money on a 1000 yard rifle shooting a 200 yard round.

Lol I shot my buck at 220 yards this year with a Christensen ELR 338 Lapua with a NXS on it.
Can't always control where the deer come out

Yea but if it would have been a 1000 yard shot you had a rifle that was capable.....besides I read all your posts and I'd bet you were disappointed it was so close. It must have been a nice buck to shoot anything that close.
