Pynch lives in Oregon with his wife and two young sons. He runs a small landscaping business and can be found traveling to competitions around the country on weekends. He grew up around guns, starting with his trusty BB gun, and the passion grew. About 14 years ago, Pynch started to dabble in long range shooting from the hunting side. In the past few years, he has focused more on competition and continues to grow with this sport.Jon Pynch web.jpg

“Over the past couple of years, I’ve noticed it feels like the level of competition and the level of quality products are growing at an incredible rate,” Pynch explained. “One of the best things about MPA is that they are always at the cutting edge of innovations, and those innovations help me stay competitive in the dynamic world of precision rifle shooting.”

The MPA Competition Chassis, which was the number 1 utilized chassis in 2016 and 2017 PRS, is the rising star platform in the precision shooting world taking 69 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards in various matches across the country. What sets the MPA BA Competition Chassis apart from its competition it’s evolving design based on the needs of the long-range shooter.  MPA machines the chassis on their CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances. MPA driving force for the entire design of their chassis system has the sole focus of giving the shooter the best opportunity to successfully engage targets at a multitude of distances with the highest percentage of impacts.  

Additionally, the MPA BA Competition Chassis employs several features that give competition shooters the MPA advantage, including the RAT System, which multi-function Arca Swiss Rail designed to give the shooter a variety of bipod  locations based on the shooting scenario as well as other unique accessories that utilize this rail system, a rotating barricade stop that locks the rifle in place when shooting on a variety of barricade designed stages, a spigot mount which attaches to the front of the forend giving the shooter additional distance between front and rear support l, the revolutionary EVG (Enhanced Vertical Grip), plus the Weight Tuning System which gives the shooter the ability to weight tune the rifle, improving balance and reducing felt recoil. All of these are innovations that MPA has brought to the long-range precision market.

Pynch also employs MPA’s Bolt Action Mount which provides him with a positive engagement via a superior clamping surface and an extreme bore size consistency.  The design simply provides a stronger, more consistent interface between the optic and the rifle. The MPA BA Mount was the #1 Mount used in the PRS in 2017.

“MasterPiece Arms was one of the first firearms companies to seriously delve into the long-range, precision rifle market. This was not a niche marketing decision but a business-direction decision,” commented Phil Cashin, president of MasterPiece Arms. “That commitment has served MPA well with multiple wins in the most prestigious competitions. For our customers that hunt with our rifle and chassis systems or use them professionally, the prevalence of our chassis in the competition world and taking home top prizes is validation of the system’s superiority.”
