Using a #1 Contour lightweight barrel in 20" length, this rifle is a great "truck gun" for varmint hunting. Short, light and easy to handle, the Ranchland is an ideal choice for four-wheelers, pickups and farm equipment where quick access to eliminate a predator is needed. The stock features a cobblestone grip texture at the forend and pistol grip for a positive hold, and a rubberized skin that gives a great, tacky grip in all weather conditions. Sling swivel studs are included. In addition, the Howa rifle features a three position safety, forged, one-piece bolt with two locking lugs and our new HACT two-stage trigger system that is factory set at 3 lbs. trigger pull. The hammer forged barrel is free floated and the action will accept Howa's detachable magazine conversion kits, giving you the option for more firepower between reloads. The receiver is shaved for weight reduction, as is the hollowed bolt handle and short, 20" lightweight barrel.
