This Howa HBAV308T26 represents the best value bolt action rifle in Australia. With thousands sold over the years, Howa rifles are a proven performer.

Unlike many competitors, there are no plastic parts on the action, bar the magazine follower. This means peace of mind for the owner, knowing that the rifle will last, removing potential for failure at a crucial moment.  Receiver and bolt are steel.  Bolt has integral bolt handle, bolt faces are square to barrel chamber, and bolt faces have excellent contact with recess, ensuring accuracy.

Many shooters know that the trigger on any rifle is one of the inherent focal points for achieved accuracy and safety. The new Howa HACT two stage match triggers provide you the shooter with the instant ability to achieve better accuracy right out of the box.

All Howa’s have a 3 position safety which allows for bolts to be locked down and also allows for actions to be UNLOADED while on SAFE. This is valuable for youth guns, moving through difficult terrain, and checking reloaded ammunition.

Our factory barrels are Hammer Forged and are chambered symmetrically at centre of axis with head space set to stringent and exacting specs resulting in maximum accuracy and consistent bores.

Howa rifles use the proven hinged floorplate internal magazine system.

ALL of our Howa Short Action Calibre rifles have the ability to be converted to detachable magazine system with a replacement floorplateMagazines are available in 5rd to 10rd options. This can be done in a matter of minutes.
