Gallery of Guns has long supported the HOWA brand, so it was easy to collaborate with Legacy Sports to develop an exclusive edition of the Superlite from HOWA. The Superlite comes in at just four pounds, seven ounces. The package would be less than six pounds even after adding a compact scope. In addition to that incredible weight savings, this exclusive HOWA Superlite has a beautiful bronze Cerakote finish on the threaded steel barrel, muzzle brake, receiver, bolt, and trigger guard. The Stocky's stock on this exclusive has a finish with elements of carbon fiber, bronze, and OD green all overlaid with black webbing. This is an ideal hunting rifle for hunting in the mountains or anywhere that requires a hike. When weight saving is key, this rifle is right at home.
