A Budget-Friendly Platform For A D.I.Y. Custom Precision Rifle
The Howa 1500 .308 Heavy Varmint 26" Barreled Action comes fully assembled and ready to be mated with the stock, optic mount, and scope you want. Built on a standard short action (SA) receiver with the cold hammer-forged barrel already installed and headspaced, Howa’s 1500 .308 Heavy Varmint 26" barreled action is ready to be the rock on which you build your favorite, tack-driving precision rifle.
The heart of the Howa 1500 .308 Heavy Varmint 26" barreled action is a two-stage Howa Actuator Controlled Trigger (HACT) that delivers a crisp, light, and consistent pull. A three-position safety allows the bolt to be locked and also enables the action to be unloaded while on safe. The bolt face is square to the chamber and has excellent contact with the receiver recesses, while the M16-style extractor ensures positive extraction of spent cases.
