    Howa 1500 .223

    In very good condition- a few marks on stock and barrel from hunting. Right handed.
    Also comes with DPT suppressor.

    Does NOT come with scope.

    Got to get rid of it - new project on the go.

    $625

    Great wee rifle. Shot excellent. I wouldn't have even put 50 rounds through it.

    Cheers mate - yep it is a great wee rifle and could shoot better than I could. Hares were no problems at 250+ yards.
