Hi, I am selling my Howa 1500 in 243. This rifle shoots extremely well and has no issues shooting half inch groups. It is the stainless varmint model in the laminated thumbhole stock. I have fitted a chrome contessa picatinny rail, howa box mag conversion and a rifle basix trigger which I would say is currently breaking at around 1-1.5lb. The rifle is factory threaded 5/8. As I have spent nearly £300 on it in extras I feel this is a very cheap rifle for someone at £600.
