    Howa Model 1500 Stainless 223

    Hello - I have for sale a Howa model 1500, stainless, in 223. It has bases and the Houge over-moulded (rubber) stock. Barrel is 500 mm, threaded 1x14, I don't seem to have a protector for it. 10 shot detachable mag.

    $450 plus shipping

    This rifle was previously owned by a professional rabbit shooter who estimated he put 4000 rounds through it, and I've done about 100. Having said that the bore looks very good and the rifle shoots 30-40mm groups at 100M with cheap ammo. It has been suggested to me a that a re-crown would sharpen it up quite a bit.

    Because its been carried a good bit the exterior is not pristine, but neither is it rough.

    I'll post up a photo tonight.

    Cheers

    Herewith photos, I've included one of a mark on the exterior of the barrel, there's been some sort of rub there, maybe from being carried on a bike or the like

    Very pleased with the rifle.
    I found the magazine spring a bit tired,but very easily fixed with an old AR mag spring
    I'm running some patches through it right now.
