Sturm, Ruger & Compancy, Inc. has announced that it has purchased a minority interest in Kodabow, Inc., a crossbow manufacturer that's based in West Chester, Pa.

Ruger's investment is meant to accelerate Kodabow's business plans and expand the company's infrastructure. Ruger President and CEO Michael O. Fifer said that the move reflects Ruger's interest in participating in one of the faster growing segments of the hunting market.
