The Buck Dropped Here!

We could hear elk bugling on the hillside above us as we worked our way up through the canyon we had hiked into. As it became light, we had entered a series of meadows at the bottom of a series of avalanche chutes. Having rained and snowed for two days solid, the elk and deer […]

My eight year old son shot this group of three shots at 100 yards. He was using the gun in the picture, a Howa Axiom chambered in .308. My family owns several of your rifles and we want you to know they are truly world class. Their looks, recoil, and accuracy simply can not be […]

My First Howa

I purchased my Howa 1500 in 30.06 and I could not be happier. I am a rookie to rifle shooting altogether. I was able to get it zeroed my first time out. Shortly after, my buddy bought a Savage 111 also in a 30-06. At first I liked the safety of the savage and the […]

New Jersey Longbeard

I went out with a buddy that is a real shooting enthusiast. After making an adjustment to the scope, we sighted my new Howa 300 Win. Mag. in at 100 yards. Shooting from a bench, with just sand bags and no rifle rest, I managed some very tight groups. My buddy then set up a […]

On Target magazine reviews the Howa Alpine Mountain Rifle!

A prime example of the quality of Japanese products comes inn the form Howa Machinery, Ltd. Established in 1907, Howa makes CNC machining centers, electronics manufacturing machines, pneumatic and hydraulic […]
