    Howa 308


    Im after a Howa barreled action or complete rifle, but prefer barreled action. Im after the stainless steel barreled action that came from the factory threaded to 1/2◊20 they are 20" i believe. But will consider any stainless howa in 308, i think the lightweight barrel is the only one they do in stainless.

    It has to be a .308

    The barreled action at reloaders is $799 new, but i thought id check here if one is available second hand and save some $

    Can also talk about a trade deal for my 6.5CM varmint barreled action

    Im in the waikato.

    Reloaders also has a 2nd hand 308 for sale. Its blued though, not stainless.
    Check the 2nd hand firearms section.

    Cheers for that, yeah i saw it.
    Its my plan B if i cant find a stainless one.

    Going on a light weight hunting rifle so would prefer the stainless as they are #1 contour where the blued are #2 contour which is heavier.
