    Yours is not standard, it's a semi custom!

    I looked at Howa and thought they just seemed 'cheap'. Nearly bought one twice, but glad I went for a T3 and a Sako 85 instead.

    They seem decent, but I could see myself swapping and upgrading. At this time I have absolutely no desire to swap from my Finnish offerings.

    I have spoken to a number of people who seem very keen (Moray Outfitting on here being a strong supporter).

    Does it have the removalble mag conversion?

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Ah yes "semi custom"... I once had a "semi custom" ford escort 1.4 (go faster stripes, bonnet vents, and tacky alloys). Solid car underneath but still a 1.4 escort

    p.s. Particularly bitter about it tonight as there's a tikka t3 tactical with a load of extras up for a grande on SD :'(

    A certain gentleman from Montana will tell you he will climb over a pile of finnish rifles and blasers to get to a decent Howa! For 650 I think they are very good as they are.

    I never said it wasn't a good gun, just that 650 for a new one makes more sense than 500 for a s/h one

    Yeah! that would pee anyone off! But what a rifle you have! The trigger has been "worked on" so well that the difference is almost undetectable!

    ******** aside though , you get a lot of gear for your money !
