Howa HS Varmint 20 inch 223 Remington All Weather Black Synthetic Overview
What makes this model great is that it offers the best of both worlds when it comes to hunting and competition shooting, pretty much an all in one package. The shorter 20” varmint barrel helps with maintaining the balance on the rifle. That is what allowed us to add the mild steel suppressor to make a great model even better. The Howa HS Varmint is a true all-rounder providing the hunter with the best of both target shooting accuracy and the agility to be a very functional hunting and working rifle. The 20 inch varmint or bull barrel profile provides the extra stiffness to the barrel that result in absolute target shooting accuracy. For carrying, handling and maneuvering in close quarters, like thick bush or getting in and out of a vehicle, the 20 inch barrel is without equal.
Many sportsmen or hunters prefer the practical and durability of the Synthetic All Weather Hogue Stock above the look and feel of a solid walnut stock on their rifle. The Hogue center-fire rifle stocks are designed to free-float the barrel for maximum accuracy, models are available with the proper clearance for standard as well as heavy “varmint” barrels. Hunters will be especially impressed by the stocks incredible quietness, exceptional accuracy and lightweight non-slip comfort. The exclusive Cobblestone texture further enhances all Hogue stocks by providing an efficient non-slip, non-irritating stippling pattern along the grip and fore end which helps improve handling and aim while at the shooting range or out hunting in the African Bush.
Howa M-1500 Features
The Howa M-1500 features a dual locking lug action based on an old-world platform using modern thinking, taking you to a new level in accuracy. The bolt action design is from a Sako based action, providing you with the same action type as some of the best custom built rifles, but at a fraction of the cost. 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. As with all other Howa M-1500 models, the Howa Varmint model has a twist rate that is carefully selected for each individual caliber to optimize bullet performance and accuracy.
All Howa Varmint rifles include an adjustable Howa HACT 2 Stage Match Trigger. The Howa Actuator Controlled Trigger system eliminates trigger creep and lightens the trigger pull. The HACT System fits all Howa M-1500 rifles that were previously equipped with Howa’s three position safety trigger group.
