QUESTIONS ABOUT HOWA RIFLES

2 posts in this topic

What can anyone tell me about Howa rifles. Looking at a varmit gun, a 22-250 or 243??? Prices are reasonable, but sound like a good gun. Are they as good as the big name brands.

Howa took over the Smith and Wesson patents for the model 1500 and some others. I have a 1500 in .243 and like it for a varmint-deer gun. There are a lot of nice guns out there. They hold their resale well, so reselling if you don't like it is not a big problem. Brent

Oh yeah, also had a mod 1500 in .222 for a while, traded it for a .223 for cheaper ammo. The .222 was a nice shooting rifle, had the S&W name on it.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
