The Howa M-1500 is one of the best known barreled-action rifles on the market and is the most popular of all of Howa's rifles. The M-1500, while being comparatively low priced next to other overseas models, has been judged to have all the delicacy and robustness one would expect from Japanese engineering. The 1500 features a unique floor magazine and comes equipped with an overmolded stock, a free-floating barrel for optimal accuracy and a non-slip Cobblestone grip that helps reduce shooting fatigue while ensuring a proper grip in all weather conditions. This rifle features a Hogue camo-finished synthetic stock, a 2-position safety, and a Weaver-style scope-mounting base. Its wood is in fair condition and its metal and bore are in good condition.
