Our History

Tom Houghton Sr., a former Army drill instructor and passionate benchrest shooter with a background in chemistry, combined his diverse interests to establish H-S Precision in 1978. After working for a chemical company in New York State, Tom and his wife Vivian sold their farmhouse and invested every dime into starting the company in Prescott, Arizona, diving headfirst into the firearms industry.

Known as an innovator, Tom Sr. revolutionized the field with his creation of the first fully synthetic rifle stock, featuring an integrated aluminum bedding block. This invention provided a stable shooting platform, propelling H-S Precision to the forefront of the industry. His pioneering work, which earned him several patents, also established strong connections with defense and law enforcement agencies.

Today, H-S Precision stands as the world's leading supplier of ballistic test barrels to the firearms and ammunition industries. It is the only company that designs, engineers, and manufactures every component of its sporting and tactical rifles, marking its unique position in the industry.
