Default Howa 22-250

I'm thinking about buying a howa m1500 22-250 but I don't know much about the howa brand. I'm just looking for info on these guns and if anybody would recommend them. Thanks.

They are good rifles; basically a Weatherby Vanguard.

Very much so. Way under rated firearm. Buy one and you won't be disappointed.

i have considered buying one several times. they tend to get great reviews from those who own them. from all the members here on the forum that own them, i have yet to see anything negative said about them.

Excellent Rifle. Get the 24" barrel for that caliber.

Howa is a very reputable rifle. You will have a difficult time finding criticism posted on a Howa 1500. The two stage triggers are very good. Mine breaks at around 2.5# from the factory.

Howa made all Weatherby rifles when they were made in Japan. Howa still makes the Weatherby Vanguard, which is the Howa 1500 with a few cosmetic changes. The Howa 1500 was also sold as the Mossberg 1500 and the S&W 1500.

They are good rifles.

Thanks for your help guys, the guy is asking $550 for the gun with a cheap scope it's used but good shape, is that a good price for it or should I try and get him to go down? I'm just not familiar with these guns.
