Re: Howa Action

Actually the Howa has a M16 style extractor that the weatherby doesn't. At least they didn't when I compared them.

    I have a 20 plus year old Vanguard and I would say it an M16 style

    Don't know about the older ones. Just compared them today in local sporting goods store while looking for a donor rifle for my daughter. $450 for the vanguard without scope and $550 for Howa scoped youth with another stock.

    I was wrong again. The weatherby I compared was a older "looked like new" vanguard like the one I have bought around 2002. The new ones are identical to the howa's action as previously said same action Sorry to mislead you.
