    Lightweight 223

    Any Howa Mini 223's for sale out there? or any other brand rifle in the same price range?
    Cheers

    Mate just get a new Howa mini you can't beat the value or lightweight, if you wait a bit the new 1in8 twist ones will be here.

    Savage Lightweight Hunter a great option too, not quite as cheap as the Howa deals but lighter and nicer rifles IMO. 5.5lb, 1:9 twist.

    I'm, waiting until they or someone comes up with a metal bottom plate and trigger guard - I like most of the mini but I can't go that mag, it's release and guard and I know it would drive me nuts so I'll hold off for now.

    Iíve seen people modify them to sit almost flush and make the release much smaller which I may do in time.

    $150 extra for bottom metal and floorplate but you still have to buy the rifle with magazine fitted.

    I handled one in the gun shop a while ago but hated the feel of the plastic stock,would get one if they came in wood,nz hunter tested the little zastarva in .223 and thought it was pretty good,tiny little gun bit like a .22 ,might be another option.
