Re: howa rifles how good?

Fox Firearms imports the howas into the UK. Brian is a nice guy to deal with. The Howas are a damn good buy. i'd class them better than a remmy 700 or win 70 out of the box. have a host of features that would be considered custom on a remmy 700,
I build a range of custom rifles on the Howa (or weaherby vanguard, same same action) starting at a grand. the factory standard howas are about half that.
trigger is reminiscent of a timney. remington scope bases fit. a very nice budget rifle, thats as good as rifles costing a fair bit more.
