    FOR SALE: HOWA 7mm08 stainless - Youth Stock, suppressed, very tidy

    Selling our HOWA 7mm08 with threaded 19" stainless barrel and the slightly shorter black Hogue Youth Stock. Bought from GunCity in mid 2017 for a beginner shooter who has now progressed to a different model so no longer needed. Had it threaded and suppressed by Gunworks. Barrel cut down to 19". Also added a half cock for extra safety. It has very low recoil so really was an ideal intro rifle. Broke the duck for one happy hunter! Currently has a Bushnell AR/223 3-12x 40mm scope mounted.

    It's in very tidy condition. A minor blemish where suppressor meets barrel. There are a few small areas of faint surface discolouration around the action/ejection port (see photos). These have only recently appeared after spending 6-8 months unused in the gun safe. Could have been a small amount of moisture on there at some point. Bore looks mint. Estimated round count is around 60, although don't know exact number. Well maintained and always cleaned after use etc. Scope in great condition. Currently sighted for [factory] Federal Fusion 120 gr. Shoots straight, groups great, better than we can shoot it.

    Package includes:

    HOWA Model 1500 7mm08 rifle w/ threaded 19" S/S barrel and black Hogue Youth Stock
    Gunworks 35mm 13.5 inch Spartan Suppressor
    Neoprene supressor cover
    Butler Creek gel sling
    Bushnell AR/223 3-12X 40mm scope, Weaver rings
    GunCity soft padded carry case

    Asking price $950 o.n.o for the package plus any shipping

    Located near Whangarei. PM me for details or contact. Cheers

    Also selling Tikka T3x in 7mm08. See other post to come

    I'll bite.
    You probably would have got a sale on here quite quickly, it caught my eye anyways.
    BUT...
    You joined the forum in July 2019, no posts, no introduction, fast forward about 4.5 months and your first post is a For Sale post. and then a second post two days later.
    No one knows you, you are an unknown quantity. No one has any idea of who you are or why you are on the forum, one may assume you are only here to read posts and sell stuff. Not the best way to build up a rapport with the guys on here and develop that feeling of trust.
    Perhaps if you made the effort earlier on to introduce yourself and take part in the forum you may have had more responses to your sale post, meh, who knows, maybe not. Track down the introductions page and make yourself known, it goes a long way on here. You are quite likely a decent bloke,(I like being optimistic), just make an effort with the guys here,
    Cheers.

    Gday Roktoy. Yep fair enough to be fair. You are right, I haven't been on here much at all. No offence intended by posting the for sale. Didn't think there'd be any harm etc. A mate of mine who's on here sometimes recommended I post it. Just thought someone might want it for a youngster getting into shooting/hunting.

    Take it easy. Cheers
