    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.

    thanks guys and pete!!!!!!!!
    the howa rifles are not for myself but for 2 friends in france, 2 barrelled actions are on the way pete the calibres are 243 does that equate to remington short action? i only shoot sakos and pete i only use schmidt-bender scopes!!!!!!!
    thanks everybody
    regards steve
