Re: Custom Build on the Howa Action

Yes the stock is the standard MCS-T. This is one of Peter lincolns ( of roedalerifles in germany ) guns. We send him the standard howa inlet with a modified badger btm inlet per his specs. He takes the standard Badger DM systems and modifies them for the Howa 1500. It is a real neat set up. Thank you Tom Manners

Tom , do you happen to know what mods are needed to fit that Badger DM ? And what needs to be done to the stock.

Pete, indexes the bottom metal off the back action screw, and then extends the front till it matches the bolt hole spacing. I think that he also clues it in.
