Maindavidson's Exclusive Superlite

Davidson’s has introduced its latest Exclusive rifle, produced in conjunction with Legacy Sports International and Howa: a brand-new Superlite. The Superlite weighs in at just four pounds, seven ounces, meaning that even after adding a compact scope, the package should be less than six pounds.

In addition to weight savings, this exclusive Howa Superlite boasts a beautiful bronze-cerakote finish on its threaded steel barrel, muzzle brake, receiver, bolt and trigger guard. A Stocky's stock is finished with elements of carbon-fiber, bronze and OD green, all overlaid with black webbing.
