Drunk the koolaid for Howa .22



Log in to see fewer ads
I’m in the dawg house for sure.......I just ordered the Howa 1100 .22 rifle.....along with a Keystone Varmint. I used to put lampshades on rifles, and stand them up in the corners of the den, the rotate them to the safe after a new “ lamp” came in.

My better half let’s me do what I want as far as toys, I shouldn’t joke about it. I guess I’m the Howa guinea pig......I don’t think it is possible to beat the KSA varmint rifle for the money.

Any one here have experience with the Howa ?

I’m telling my age here.....I just found a Simmons 6 x 20 x 44 scope made for silhouette in Japan . This bugger is N I B ! I forgot I had it.....

That will go on the KSA . I still get excited about new toys.

I cant wait to hear how you like it. The price looks good, compares to the Tikka but I like the stock better. Hopefully someone local will get one in soon so I can check them out.

I wonder how the trigger compares to the T1x? It'll be interesting to find out how the accuracy compares too

Thanks gr8guns, I couldn't find it on the gun.deals site and that is usually very complete. I don't know that it is a kool-aid move as the Howa rifles I own are very well made. The only hesitancy I have is the importer. Legacy has proven to be very sketchy for customer support and having a good dealer network.

Plus one on that. My experience with them was less than satisfactory.

Legacy was slow, but there was a reason.

I had an appearance problem with a rifle they imported, they took care of it but it was a little slow. To their credit, they had to wait till they imported the next batch, but they let me shoot my old rifle till the new one came in. I was satisfied, but it was just one experience.

New Class Of Stock

I like how they invented a new class of stock, the Tactical/Varmint stock!
