Howa USA named Official Factory Rifle Sponsor for the 2019 National Rifle League Season

Yorba Linda, CA – National Rifle League (NRL), a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and education of precision rifle shooting through a range of outdoors-related public interest activities, is pleased to announce Howa Precision Rifles & Barreled Actions has renewed its sponsorship of the 2019 Season as the Official Factory Rifle of NRL.

The Howa Model 1500 sporting rifle has continually led the pack in terms of quality and design evolution. With a vast history of excellence Howa has taken the steps into the Long-Range Precision market with a full line of competition ready rifles and strong industry relationships. Legacy Sports Int. guarantees all Howa rifles to deliver sub moa performance of 1 inch or less at 100 yards with premium factory ammunition, and comes with a 100% lifetime warranty.

Howa competition ready rifles offer a sub moa guarantee out of the box and the partnerships that they have developed make it easy for them to offer something for everyone.”

“2018 was an awesome year to be a part of the NRL. Watching the sport grow and the feedback from competitors and fans alike, has been amazing. We view the NRL as an opportunity to connect with precision rifle shooters all around the country and share our passion for bolt-action rifles and the competition camaraderie. Howa USA is very excited to be a part of the NRL 2019 Season,” stated Matt Hornback, Marketing Agent, Legacy Sports International.
