One of the safest and strongest bolt actions on the market, the bolt features a one-piece body and M16 type spring loaded extractor. The action length is also matched to the cartridge size of the caliber.
The Howa M-1500 Models provide you with a three position safety. The safety is easy to operate and allows you to unload the rifle while it is still in safety mode. All Howa M-1500 bolt actions are drilled and tapped to accept one or two piece bases for the mounting of optics. The free-floating hammer forged barrel has no sights for a modern look and finish. The increased diameter of the barrel will result in increased weight and less recoil. Slower heating of the barrel will also take place during a succession of shots.
