    Howa 1500 .223 16"

    Howa 1500 .223 for sale. Bought brand new in September 2020 (will give original reciept to purchaser). Has been sighted in with approx 18 rounds but not used after that. 16" Barrel.
    Comes with a 10-round detachable magazine, as well as bases to mount your rings onto.
    1:8 twist rate - meaning it can stabilise and accurately shoot heavier projectiles.
    Threaded for silencer (1/2x28). Can add a brand new ghost modular suppressor on for an additional $250 (retail price is $350).
    Price for the bare rifle with bases is $750.
    Any questions are welcome. Cheers

    Hi,
    Is it blued? Or the “sniper grey” flavoured cerakote?
    What’s the accuracy with the 16” barrel?
    Thanks

    Gíday mate, itís just blued. As for the accuracy, I havenít fired it enough to give you a solid review. It did group very nicely when I was sighting it in though (within an inch and a half at 100 yards) and Iím not the greatest shot.
    Cheers

    Pretty sure Howa's have a sub MOA guarantee so if it's a month old, there's that to fall back on...

    Yeah that rings a bell. Iíve got the receipt so youíd be able to take it back under warranty - would highly doubt youíd need to though.

    Warranty is void as soon as you thread or chop the barrel...
    Warm Barrels!

    it was threaded and shortened at the factory so the warrant is still valid

    Howa Mini .223 leaves the Japanese factory at 22Ē.

    It is common practice for the retailer to have rifles supplied by the importer (Outdoor Sports) shortened. As long as it was done before the point of sale, then you have a case. But good luck if itís Gun City.

    I'm sure there's nothing to worry about here. It grouped well when I sighted it in, haven't fired it since. Cheers

    It was a bit of an impulse purchase, decided to sell it along with a lot of other gear to fund a long range hunting set up and a rangefinder.
