    Howa Mini Action 223 - Blued/Syn 1:9

    Selling because I lucked onto a nice S/S Model 7 in 260 to be my "truck gun" so get yourself a bargain. $600 plus freight.

    Comes with steel Q/R rings and a Nikko Panamax 3-9x40 scope (surprisingly good), one 5 shot mag and one 10 shot mag.

    It is the standard 223 with a 1:9 twist (so will handle 69 gn and short 75's). I took to the bulky Houge stock and slimmed it down a lot in the for-end, and took the "hook" off the pistol grip. A ten shot mag was cut down to 5 so it was a bit more flush with the bottom metal. Not threaded.

    I've only fired about 70 rounds through it. Shoots fine, everything inside 40 mm at 100M, I don't usually bother trying to wring rifles right out so when I got the 65gn sierra's going at around 25mm groups at 100M I went hunting.

    Nice light rifle thats good to carry, perfect for Wallabies, Goats and Fallow size critters.
