Hat do y'all have to say about them? I personally like the howa talon and m1500. My buddy was at cabelas and he wanted to look at the axiom. They said that he didn't want to buy it because it was no good. The issc scar replica in 22 is pretty cool and I didn't know how it worked but I wanted one, so halls opinions would be appreciated.

I wonder what they thought was no good about it. The M1500 platform is proven as a well made, accurate rifle. Axiom is only the stock made by Knoxx Stocks, I think owned by Blackhawk now, both well respected.

I have one in .308 and it is a very good shooter. Heavy 24" barrel keeps repeat shots on line. I would buy another one any time.

I have a Howa 1500 300 WM. Shoots amazing. I have total confidence with it out to 600 yards. Why only 600? That's as far as my range goes. Very accurate rifle. Especially for an "economy" line. I can hold sub moa groups sitting at the bench, no rests. Mine has the Hogue over mould stock, I replaced the nikko sterling scope it came with, but it's really not a bad scope for coming in a combo package.

One of my very best friends has a Citadel 1911 pistol. No it's not as nice as a Springfield or Smith & Wesson, but it ate cheap ammo all day-- no jams. And he's horrible about cleaning his guns.

All that being said, I hate the bolt stop on the 1500. I've broken it twice. They use a crappy little shouldered bolt to stick it on the receiver, and it doesn't take much to break. When I called legacy sports to get a replacement, all I got was the run around and finally told I needed to order it online, I couldn't just talk to someone. So I called BS on all of it, got the serial number off my buddy's Weatherby Vanguard and ordered 5 bolts from Weatherby. Had them in my hand in 1 week.

Legacy is only the importer, not the Manufacturer. Please don't confuse a quality made firearm w/ a cheap firearm. They import many from different manufacturers and countries. Howa was set up w/ the help of Weatherby. Good ole Roy was looking for a company for the new Vangaurd series. Howa stepped up at a time Japanese goods were thought to be inferior. Browning followed suit soon afterwards. They are very high quality firearms. The Rossi line is still questionable. They will function, but accuracy is not quite where it should be and quality leaves something to be desired. Some of the Rossi line are very good. Their 1892 lever guns are great, but the single shot rifles really suck. Made in Brazil.

I would not trade my Howa 1500 for all the money in the world. And if I ever get the money to get another one I am all for it.

The Howa Axiom has an excellent reputation for accuracy and reliability. The guy a Cabelas is likely a Remingtim 700 fanboy. The Remington 700 is good, but far from perfect. Many custom rifle builders will not even build a gun based on the 700 action.

See I agree with all of you. I love the howa m1500 in 308. But I wanted a talon or axiom in 204, and wasn't sure what to think. And I'm not sure but aren't all the howa rifles a m1500 with a different stock?
