Legacy Sports International announced an addition to its Long Range Rifle lineup, adding a model equipped with the GRS Riflestocks Berserk rifle stock.

The new Howa GRS rifle is built using Howa's 1500 Precision Barreled Action and is available in the following chamberings: .204 Ruger, .223 Rem., 22-250 Rem., .243 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win.

The GRS Berserk stock that equips the new rifle ensures that shooters have added comfort and adjustability in their shooting platform. The stock uses an adjustable cheek riser and buttpad and is specifically designed for right-handed shooters. Other features of the new stock include a textured grip and forend that ensures a solid grip. The stock also features dual sling-swivel studs that allow for the mounting of both a bipod and a sling.

The Howa 1500 Precision Barreled Action incorporates a cold-hammer-forged barrel along with a one-piece bolt that uses two locking lugs, as well as an M16-style extractor and ejector. The action also uses a Howa HACT two-stage trigger that is designed to offer a crisp 3-pound trigger pull. The rifle comes with a sub-MOA guarantee.

Barrel lengths are available in 20 and 24 inches, and threaded muzzles are also available, depending on the caliber. The stock is available in black right-hand designs only with a length of pull of 13.2 inches to 14.5 inches.

The suggested retail price on the new Howa GRS rifle is $1,199.
