    $575 shipped in the lower 48. I'll take USPS Money Order or Paypal.

    Howa 1500 .223 with a heavy barrel. Barrel is 20 inches and is threaded 1/2-28.

    I believe the barrel is 1:12" twist. The gun has less than 100 rounds fired. I fired some 50 Vmax Hornady bullets into less than a 1/2" group at 100 yards. Gun is in very good condition like new with the exception of the modifications done.

    Here is a list of modifications:
    1. PT&G bottom metal for AICS mags. Comes with one 10 round .223 Ruger AICS pattern mag. The mag feeds perfectly. You can't even tell you are pushing a round into the chamber. The mag was modified very slightly to fit the gun, but regular .223 AI mags fit perfect without modification and function also. The bolt stop on the gun was slightly modified to allow the bolt to travel rearward far enough to strip rounds from the mag.

    2. Trigger was adjusted to 2 lbs. Trigger is drop safe and is absolutely fantastic. I think the only factory trigger I have felt that is in the same ballpark is a Tikka.

    3. Nightforce 20 MOA rail comes with the gun and was installed with proper torque and blue loctite.

    4. Hogue stock was opened up slightly on the end to ensure no contact with barrel.

    5. Had the muzzle threaded to run a suppressor.

    ***SCOPE, RINGS, and MUZZLE BRAKE NOT INCLUDED***

    Anyone who wants to replace the stock on this with something more expensive, the bottom metal drops into the factory inlet with no modification. Pretty slick.

    Back up. Sweet rifle. Someone needs to buy this and wear it out on a Prairie Dog town.

    This started life as one of the barreled actions they sell without a stock. I have no idea what the model number would be. I have the original bottom metal to sell with it too.
