Legacy Sports International, Inc., proudly announces a new caliber for the HOWA MiniAction rifle at SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas. Following the success of the HOWA MiniAction rifles chambered in .204 Ruger, .222 Remington, and .223 Remington, the 2017 SHOT Show will showcase the HOWA MiniAction rifle chambered in the popular 7.62×39 and 6.5 Grendel calibers.


The HOWA MiniAction series of rifles are lightweight, compact, accurate, economical, and come in a plethora of calibers and barrel configurations. These awesome little rifles feature a receiver that is 12 percent shorter than the HOWA Short Action receivers. The reduced size allows for a lighter rifle as well as a shorter bolt throw for faster reloads. The rifles feed from a 5 round magazine and feature HOWA’s proprietary two-stage H.A.C.T. trigger system. The HOWA MiniAction receiver sits in a lightweight, pillar bedded synthetic stock that is available with a green or black finish or camo dipped in Multicam or Kryptek Highlander. The stock is equipped with front and rear sling swivel studs for attaching slings and a bipod.


The HOWA MiniAction rifles feature 20 and 22-inch barrels available in lightweight, standard, and heavy barrel configurations. These barrels, like the rest of the HOWA rifle barrels, are cold hammer forged and feature precision reamed chambers. The specialized process not only hardens the metal and produces the most rigid barrels on the market, but results in stunningly consistent accuracy.

A variety of factory ammunition was utilized in the quality testing of the HOWA MiniAction, and countless rounds were sent downrange during testing in order to ensure the HOWA Sub MOA Guarantee.  When paired with the Nikko Stirling Panamax riflescope, consistent hits at 700+ yards on IPSC-sized targets are the norm.

The HOWA MiniAction rifle chambered in 7.62×39 is an incredible piece of hardware that fills many roles. The 7.62×39 round is also perfect for taking small to medium-sized game such as feral hogs and white-tailed deer. The mild recoil of the 7.62×39 round allows for a full day of enjoyment on the range, and the compact size of the HOWA MiniAction rifle lends itself to shooters of any stature.

The .311 bore diameter and the 1-9.45 rate of twist result in excellent down range performance.

The HOWA MiniAction rifle is available as a stand-alone rifle or comes equipped with in a 3-9×40 Nikko Stirling Panamax Riflescope that includes the scope base and rings.
