Howa Action

Is it possible to buy just a howa action with no barrel?

    No,,,,,unless you find one on a gunshow table or in a show case at a pawn shop or gun shop with the barrel already removed.

    I'd bet you could find some Weatherby Vanguards in certain stores for less than that and then have a stock + barrel + trigger to sell and recoup some cost.

    You can usually pick up clean used Howa 1500 around 300-350 complete. I picked up a Howa 1500 in 270 win. as donor last winter for $325 that was nearly new.

    It's being turned into a 6.5-06AI and will be wearing a Manners T2 when it's all done.

    IMHO, the Howa receiver makes for a good inexpensive donor.

    Agree, check out the pawn shops and rifle racks. You can get a good howa action rifle in the $300-350 range. The wby vanguards are a good scource. I find them used for just over $300 regularly. Midway has the triggers. They are an excellent action to build on and the tolerances are better than the remington, winchester, ruger, browning, etc actions. I have numerous rifles built on them. My pet 243 AI that regularly groups 1/2"-3/4" groups at 300 yards is built on a Howa.
