    Great write up

    An excellent review. I've had my Howa for just over 4 years. A cracking rifle for the money.

    A week ago today I got to shoot a brand-new Howa in .308Win at our club range. It had been fitted with the new GRS Berserk composite stock.

    Shooting the NATO-issue GGG stuff, I put three consecutive rounds into one raggedy hole, and the fourth one about 4 - 5 mm away.

    Beautiful trigger, too.

    Lots of guns and trains.

    That's good to hear. I'm about to order a new Howa Varmint in the same calibre (unless something 'interesting' comes along before the end of the month at the right price 2nd hand) although I think I'll be going with the B&C stock as I'm not keen on the looks of the GRS stuff, good as it may be.

    I really like the Howa trigger on the newer models, for a factory unit it feels bloody good. I've also found out that there's a mag conversion available with a 'real metal' bottom metal (as opposed to the polymer one they usually get fitted with) to take AICS mags... Importing it might be another matter though!

    picked up one of these howa's in .308 with a standard sporter barrel but in a B and C stock and after doing some trigger fettling i have had 3shot 16mm /100 yrds groups with handloads from it,quite frankly i think these are outstanding value for money and i think it would be hard to get more bang for your buck..
    more guns than you can shake a stick at!

    Speak to Mike at Brock and Norris, he's got floor plates in for Howas, they do require fitting and bedding to work with AICS mags though.
