    How did you find the action. I have been told by some people that the howa action is too tight to cycle quickly. Curious to know what your experience was

    It's an awesome rifle to shoot and handle. Gives a nice BOOM when you pull the trigger. Accuracy was great!! The action was nice and smooth from what I felt.
    gertjie87, all in all it is definitely something I would consider doing. The "cutting stuff" mindset payed off with that rifle. The mag I used was a bit problematic like you say but she is a beaut, congrats.

    I hunt with two Howa's, both have smooth actions and cycle fast.

    I was checking that little rifle out all the time on Saturday... sweet looking thing!

    Can't recall, did you have it threaded for a comp/suppressor when you had it cut?

    I did yes have a supressor for it as wel as a brake. The supressor takes away the compactness and the brake makes it really really loud so I actually like it without any attachments
