they are the same action as a Weatherby Vanguard on a Boyd's stock. They are known to be very accurate and affordable rifles that are every bit as good as a Weatherby. I personally don't care for their looksbut they are a great value.

You haven't heard of them because they don't do much advertising.

Howa rifles are made in Japan. I have a Howa 1500 chambered for .223 Rem. and I like it. Nice smooth action and accurate with my handloads. I bought mine a few years ago with the scope package and it was $399.
