Re: Howa... What reputation do they have?
I have an Interarms MarkX which I "think" is a Howa in 7RM. It doesn't shoot worth a darn but it has a buggy whip for a barrel. I was thinking about selling it but I have changed my mind and now am going to have it rebarreled into a big thumper gun, probably 416 Taylor. I have shot or know of about six different Howa/Vangaurd/S&W rifles and mine is the ONLY one that wasn't a shooter.
Superlight, you seem a little like me, when I am planning on doing something/anything I ask every concieveable question to anyone who will listen so I have a perfect picture in my head on whatever it is. I also get a lot of the, "Just go ahead and do..." Sometimes that is the correct/best answer, only you will know for yourself though. Usually for me it isn't.
