    Legacy Sports International, recently announced the new Howa HCR, or Howa Chassis Rifle. The Howa HCR sits in an aluminum chassis, and features and Ar-15 style grip and a fully adjustable LUTH-AR MBA-3 stock.

    Key Features of the Howa Chassis Rifle Include:

    I recently had the chance to test the Howa MiniAction series of rifles, and I was very impressed! The Firearm Blog will be getting a Howa Chassis Rifle in the very near future for testing. One thing that I have come to recently appreciate about Legacy Sports International LLC, is their ability to quickly respond to the needs of the market. I met the Legacy Sports crew this year at SHOT Show, and the were an absolute pleasure to work with.

    The Howa Chassis Rifle will have an MSRP $1299.00. Could this rifle be a less expensive way for shooters to get into the competition circuit? I look forward to seeing what kind of accuracy these rifles are capable of.
