The Howa is designed to withstand harsh conditions in the field or on the range. The 1500 Hogue Rifle is Howa's classic bolt action rifle featuring the two-stage adjustable HACT trigger. Can be fitted with standard scope bases and includes rubber butt pads and swivel studs for slings.
Hammer-forged free-floating barrels made from the highest-grade steel are standard on all Howa M-1500 models and are chambered symmetrically at centre of axis with head space set to stringent and exacting specs resulting in maximum accuracy and consistent bores. Various barrel profile options like fluted and varmint are available with Stainless Steel options available on certain models. It is precision crowned, as a good and even muzzle crown is essential for accuracy and twist rates are chosen for each caliber to optimize accuracy and bullet performance.
Howa utilizes the very best stocks in the industry for form, fit, function and value. Howa Rifle Stock ergonomics are optimized to guarantee the best shooting posture, excellent balance and effective bolt operation.
The free-floating hammer forged barrel ships without open sights for a clean, modern look finished in a non-reflective satin. All M-1500 actions are drilled and tapped into the top of the front and rear of the receiver as factory preparation for telescopic sight mounts to accept one or two piece bases.
Another distinctive feature of the M-1500 system is the controlled-feed mechanism, consisting of a large, strong spring loaded M16 style extractor that engages the cartridge case rim as soon as the round leaves the magazine and firmly holds the cartridge case until the round is ejected by the spring plunger ejector.
Based on the Sako L61 and L579 action, the bolt body has two locking lugs. The bolt handle is permanently attached to the bolt and is turned-down and backwards for use with optical sights.
The action features three large gas relief vents in the bolt body designed to protect the users head in case of a primer or cartridge rupture or detonation. When the action suffers a catastrophic failure it is designed to deflect the debris and excess gases downwards through the magazine and away from the operator's face.
The internal magazine of the M-1500 series consists of an integral box machined to match the cartridge for which the rifle was being chambered, with a detachable floor plate, which can hold up to 5 standard sized rifle cartridges. ALL of our Howa Short Action Caliber Rifles have the ability to be converted using the Ammo Boost Advantage Detachable Magazine Kits with 5 round and 10 round detachable magazine options...and all can be done in a matter of minutes.
Many shooters know that the trigger on any rifle is one of the inherent focal points for achieved accuracy and safety. The new Howa HACT two stage match triggers provide you, the hunter or range shooter, with the instant ability to achieve better accuracy right out of the box.
All Howa rifles have a 3 position safety which allows for barrels to be locked down and also allows for actions to be UNLOADED while on SAFE. This is a fantastic safety feature for youth guns, climbing tree stands or moving through dense African brush or forests.
