Not so long ago, the vast majority of hunting rifles were only available with traditional wood furniture or they were of the all-black tactical variety. If you wanted something different in the aesthetic department, you would likely have to break out some rattle-can spray paint in a selection of browns and greens or find something like a cloth-based wrap-around solution. With the proliferation of better methods like Cerakoting in other colors or hydro-dipping patterns, options have greatly expanded in recent years and many of these alternatives are now being offered straight from gun factories. Howa has gotten on board with satisfying this customer demand, and they are now offering a new full-dip Kratos camo pattern rifle.
The press release for this reads:
