Rapid City, SD: H-S Precision, internationally-known for building highly accurate sporting, competition and tactical rifles, announces the unveiling of a limited production tribute rifle commemorating Tom Houghton Sr. Mr. Houghton founded the company in 1978, and as a passionate benchrest competitor set three world accuracy records using his own cut-rifled barrels. This Limited Production Tribute Rifle is a Long Range hunting rifle replicated after his original world record rifle. Only 50 of these rifles will ever be made.

The stock, which is done in a red, white, and blue color scheme, is of course an H-S Precision Pro-Series consisting of fiberglass reinforced with Kevlar and unidirectional carbon fiber, hand-laid around a full length aluminum bedding block. The stainless steel Pro-Series barreled action sports a newly designed receiver with a minimal ejection port and a tactical bolt handle. Each rifle will be engraved with a limited edition, one-of-a-kind "Tom Sr." serial number. Making this rifle truly unique, unlike other limited editions/commemorative guns which are generally chambered in only one caliber, this tribute rifle can be ordered in any commercial caliber for which H-S Precision chambers.

Tim Houghton, Vice President and COO, said “My dad was always an inspiration to me, and being able to memorialize him with a special rifle was something I had wanted to do for quite some time. Every detail of this project was important to me, we really tried to bring the essence of his original rifle into the modern world. I am happy I get to share a project that means so much to me with the entire firearms community.”
