    I'm very happy with mine, stainless and synthetic 1500 in .308, comfortable to shoot and pretty light weight, I haven't been able to find any bad reviews online either.

    The Hogue Overmolded rubber stock will compensate for the action stretching.

    (It's an old joke here. Someone suggested that Howa's "stretch" with use. Nonsense of course! I have a couple of them!) ~Muir

    Muir, I was waiting to see who cracked first

    Seriously though, they are really solid actions and are the basis for many custom and semi-custom rifles. Good kit that is well priced.

    Howa actions are great, and it's a really solid rifle action to customize with a good barrel and stock later on.
