Glen Rock, PA -(AmmoLand.com)- American Built Arms Company (A*B Arms brand) is proud to introduce the latest version of their best-selling chassis for the Howa 1500 short-action; the A*B Arms MOD*X GEN III Howa.

The MOD*X GEN III Howa is designed and engineered for military, law enforcement, and hunting enthusiasts. The A*B Arms MOD*X GEN III Howa is a lightweight (3 lbs. 2 oz.), ergonomic, drop-in chassis for the Howa 1500 Short Action. It serves as a modular foundation on which tactical accessories can be added according to the operator’s needs.

“Over the past few months, we were asked to create the Howa Precision Rifle through our strategic partnership with United Sporting Companies. We took design aspects of the MOD*X GEN III and designed a custom chassis for the Howa 1500 short-action,” said Jason Combs, President and Founder of American Built Arms Company. “Through that product launch, the MOD*X GEN III Howa chassis was the next logical product launch for those firearms enthusiasts who currently own a Howa 1500 and are looking for a tactical chassis to improve their shooting experience.”

The MOD*X GEN III Howa remains one of the lightest rifle chassis on the market today. Weighing in around 3 lbs. 2 ounces, the MOD*X GEN III Howa will be available in the fixed stock variant. If you’re looking for a tactical upgrade for your existing Howa 1500 SA, the MOD*X GEN III Howa is your answer.

The MOD*X GEN III Howa will be shipping in mid-September, 2016 and will be on display at the 2017 SHOT Show in the American Built Arms Company booth #7006.

800 dollars, Why?
I would love to upgrade my stock on my Howa but I can buy another rifle and have money left for that price.
If their stock was around 400, I’d think about it.
Maybe I’m just a cheap bastard.
