    Howa mag

    You will need to do minor stock work to have the bottom metals fit your stock.

    Both functions 100% reliable.
    Both have their pro's and cons, but the major desiding factor for me would be what tickles your fancy.

    If looks is your main consern - go L13, If you, however like the robust "Im build tuff for tuff conditions ", go with the legacy.

    Scratching up my beautifull L13s bothers me, but abusing the lagacy does'nt bother at all - it seems to have been designed to give that "work me hard, I dont mind" image.

    Warping - if your worried about warping on the Lagacy, install small aluminium bushings and your sorted. Ive never had warping issues though - but I do not tend to shoot large and heavy recoiling calibres.

    The one thing that is a huge factor for me is availability.

    Hope this answers your questions
    Hi. Sounds like your the fella to talk to. What's the best magazine to use in the howa for longest coal? Cheers couldn't work out how to pm you
