Inspection absolutely welcome. Comes with NS Nighteater 2.5-10x40. Pics up today, $750 firm. PM or give me a holler on 027 270 9267.

    Weight is 3.4kg give or take. The Boyds laminate was surprisingly light, but awesome to shoulder and feels great. My 455 (to be) has similar, and for me, they are the best weld and feel.

    Thanks, I'm guessing that weight is without optics? And confirming it's a normal blued Howa 1500 with standard size sporting barrel but fitted with a boyd stock? BTW I do like those stocks, have them on a couple of Ruger .22's

    Indeed it is without glass. The barrel profile is the middle sporting profile, not the scrawny one used on the SS models. They are a very nice stock, I can't wait to do some plinking etc with the similarly stocked 455.
