MASTERPIECE ARMS (MPA)
MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, introduced the MasterPiece Arms Grenade. MPA Grenades are chassis that pass MPA’s inspection in every way except cosmetically. Whether it be a small ding in the paint, a run-in with a laser that was having a slightly off day or some other minor cosmetic blemish, these chassis will still function with the same flawless perfection you expect from MPA, but with their own special flair.
The blemishes will all be considered mild and, in most cases, are difficult to identify without very close inspection. The small grenades lasered on them will mark them as the unique MasterPieces that they are. These are hand-built precision instruments and not production components.

ALIEN GEAR HOLSTERS
Springfield Hellcat OWB Paddle Holster
Alien Gear’s Springfield Hellcat Cloak Mod OWB Paddle Holster combines an ultra-durable holster base with a custom-molded retention shell. The holster base has a hard polymer rear plate, a spring steel flex plate and a thermoelastomer outer membrane that the user’s pistol sits against with a trigger guard retention bump to ensure stable retention while carrying. The flex plate bends when the pistol is inserted, acting as a retention assist. The hard base makes the holster durable, so it can be worn through any activity level. Users can adjust the fit via the mounting hardware, or even customize it with the included Parts Pack. Please note that the holster shell is custom-molded for the Springfield Hellcat and is only compatible with the factory slide. (The Cloak Mod OWB Paddle Holster is patent pending.)
