Hello everyone, and thank you for your help. In doing research to find the right varmint rifle, I have come accross Howa. I have never heard of the brand before, however I have heard that they manufacture a lot of other company's rifles. In looking, i have seen some beautiful specimens. Can anyone speculate on their quality and mainly accuracy. Also comments on trigger, chambering, etc Thanks all, in advance! - Rod As an adder, I have asked what are to many/most of you, "simple" questions. I am just learning what I can, right now in the pre-purchase phase, brand related questions. And, as of now, have no real loyalty. I am getting some comments that in summary "buy the dam*? gun, have fun, and quit asking so many questions. Please, I know these are basic questions, but if you dont like it DONT CLICK ON IT! If you don't have anything to offer on topic, don't comment! Pass it over. Sorry about that, but I am getting it on some of my questions... and once the negatives start the topic stops. Anyway for those who are so generous with their help, THANK YOU I NEED IT! Once i get it, digest it, as i can i will give others the time and help you are giving me.
