Thread: New Howa's

  1. Default New Howa's

    I just got the new Legacy Sports catalog and was drooling over some of the new Howa's. I've been eyeballing the new Kuiu Howa's. They come in a 20" or 22" barrel in Tactical Gray Cerakote. That 20" gun looks like it might do well as a poor man's Alpine Mountain Rifle. Slightly heavier though. Has anyone been able to get their hands on the new Kuiu rifles?

    I spent some time at the Legacy area at the shot show. Very impressed with these rifles. Sub MOA groups are what is advertised, that's a plus. Many have the threaded barrel option in case the hearing protection act goes through and a surpressor is of interest. I wish I hadn't stopped there, I don't need another rifle....
    They are big on the 6.5 Creedmoor option, and I'm not familiar with it.

    I see that Howa is now guaranteeing Sub MOA and a Lifetime Warranty for the original owner. That is a big plus. However, I haven't seen any reason, why either of these would have been a problem in the past. My experience with Howa has been spectacular accuracy, and their customer service has been great.

    Blasphemy. We all NEED another rifle.

    I have a new prototype rifle coming. Hoping to get it before season so I can spend the summer experimenting and use it in the field this fall.

    26" barrel! Ok.
    Standard or magnum caliber?

    6 more inches of barrel sounds quite a bit heavier than what you carry now.

    Yep. Then add a left-hand action and I may be interested!

    Howa is catching up. No skinny barrel please. Maybe a carbon? Then later, an action capable of the big cartridges would be nice. mtmuley

    Randy's prototype - a Howa in 7mm Hunt Talk Improved with a 26" carbon wrapped ultra-super-slim tube; all weighing in at 4.3 pounds!

    Do all new Howa's have the MOA guarantee? It looks like some of them have it and some don't.

    I believe they all are sub MOA. But Matt from Legacy can probably confirm or deny that.
