Build Your Own Sweet-Shooting, Hard-Hitting Deer Rifle
Howa's M1500 barreled action chambered in .350 Legend brings nearly AR-15-like modularity and ease of assembly to the traditional bolt action platform. That's good because even though the .350 Legend round was designed to fit in a standard AR-15, Howa's 16.25" heavy-contour barrel helps you squeeze maximum accuracy from this hard-hitting deer cartridge. The HACT two-stage trigger that delivers a light (more accurately "de-lightful"!), consistent pull, and a crisp let-off. The "Howa Actuator Controlled Trigger" has a uniquely configured sear and precision-cut contact surfaces, so creep is entirely eliminated. A three-position safety allows the bolt to be completely locked and also enables the action to be unloaded while on safe.
Like all Howa M1500 actions, the .350 Legend model comes fully assembled with the barrel chambered, installed, and properly headspaced - eliminating the most difficult work in building your own bolt action rifle. Drop it into the stock or chassis system of your choice, and you have a high-quality precision rifle at an amazingly affordable cost. But cost savings don't come from skimping on materials or features! Other features of the 350 Legend barreled action include:
- Heavy-contour 16.25" barrel with 1-16" rifling
- Muzzle brake / flash suppressor ready 5/8"-24 tpi muzzle threads (cap included)
- Durable matte black Cerakote® finish on receiver & barrel
The .350 Legend M1500 barreled action has a forged one-piece bolt body, with two locking lugs and an integral bolt handle. The bolt face is precisely squared to the barrel chamber for excellent contact with the receiver recess. An M16-style extractor ensures reliable, positive extraction. A full-length bottom metal with hinged floorplate, magazine box, mag spring, and front/rear action screws are part of the package. Receiver is drilled and tapped for a scope base. FFL required for purchase.
