Howa Expands 1500 Series With Additional Stainless Models

It was more than 45 years ago that Japanese firearms maker Howa first brought its Model 1500 series of bolt-action rifles to the export market. The line-up has become legendary for its precision craftsmanship at a value price. It offers a one-piece receiver with integral recoil lugs, a forged steel bolt with twin locking lugs, and an M-16-style ejector.
