The Howa Alpine Lightweight rifle is an all weather workhorse of a hunting rifle. It sports a light weight design that makes it easy to carry on a long trek. The 20" barrel is Cerakote coated for protection from the elements and will get you quickly on target. Its light weight synthetic stock sports a Pachmeyer Decelerator recoil pad and swivel sling studs. Howa has increased capacity and versatility with the Ammo Boost detachable magazine kit. The forged one piece bolt with two locking lugs is incredibly solid. It has a three position safety and HACT two stage match trigger.
