The HOWA M1500 features cold hammer forged barrels, steel forged bolt and receiver, HACT 2-stage trigger, and three-position safety. The addition of an HS Precision stock makes this rifle a masterpiece of precision. Each stock features a 3-piece design. At the heart of every H-S Precision Stock is a CAD/CAM designed CNC machined aluminum bedding block chassis. The shell of each stock is comprised of woven Kevlar cloth, woven fiberglass cloth, uni-directional carbon fiber, an epoxy-based gel coat and a laminating resin. The core of the stock is reaction-injection-molded polyurethane foam and reinforced with fiberglass.
