Dead-On Accuracy Out of the Box & Unlimited Customizing Options
The Howa 1500 18.5" .308 Winchester Barreled Action lets you build your own high-end precision rifle – without getting a second mortgage to pay for it. Built around a short-action (SA) receiver and a high-quality cold hammer-forged barrel, the Howa 1500 .308 Winchester Standard Barreled Action locks up tight with Howa’s one-piece, dual-lug bolt machined for an extremely precise fit to the receiver raceway.
Also inside, Howa’s Actuator Controlled Trigger (HACT) delivers a crisp, light, consistent pull, adjustable between 2.5 and 3.8 lbs. Rounding out the package is a three-position safety, is often preferred by bolt-action shooters.
The rest is up to you: customize your rifle exactly the way you want by installing the remaining components yourself. Howa takes care of the most difficult task, mating barrel to action and getting correct headspacing. You install the barreled action into the stock or chassis system of your choice and add accessories. The Scout Model accepts a front sight.
