After an absence of 100 years from rifle-making, Webley & Scott have great pleasure in announcing the new Webley & Scott Empire centrefire rifle. Produced using the latest technology, the Empire shares all the traditional qualities of those now prized rifles from 100 years ago:
The Empire has an oiled, walnut stock in Classic design for the feel of an English rifle combined with modern ballistic technology. Featuring a detachable steel magazine with quick release button, this Classic British-designed Sporting Rifle is a combination of Heritage, Tradition and Technology. Created by Webley & Scott to be perfect for stalking Red Stag in Scotland or White-tail in Pennsylvania.
- Accuracy – provided by the Sub-MOA hammer forged barrel.
- Reliability – provided by the proven action, designed in short and long action.
- Speed to target – the traditional, heritage design means that you are already familiar with the rifle.
- Safety – Three position safety and detachable steel magazine.
HOWA AMMO BOOST DETACHABLE 5 ROUND MAGAZINE
Get more firepower from your Howa M-1500 hunting rifle with the Howa Ammo Boost Detachable 5 Round Magazine. The Ammo Boost Detachable magazines are available in either 5 or 10 round magazine capacities and made specifically for target shooters and varmint hunters. The polymer body magazines will turn a standard four round box magazine into a higher five round detachable or ten round capacity, depending on your needs. The Howa Ammo Boost Advantage magazine slots into a special trigger guard housing that replaces the existing floor plate of your Howa M-1500 long or short action. Assembly requires the new floor plate and either a five round or ten round magazine in the caliber of your choice.
HOWA ACTUATOR CONTROLLED TRIGGER
Howa is now equipping each barreled action with the new Howa Actuator Controlled Trigger system (HACT) that eliminates trigger creep and lightens trigger pull. The HACT system fits all Howa M-1500 rifles that were previously equipped with Howa’s three position safety trigger group. The HACT assembly is a completely redesigned trigger and sear unit that actually creates a two-stage trigger. This allows the shooter to take up trigger creep before squeezing through to touch off the round. HACT allows for a lighter let-off of between 2.5 and 3.8 lbs, eliminating trigger jerk – or pulling off the shot because the trigger pull is too heavy.The HACT trigger from Howa will improve your accuracy with a crisper, cleaner and lighter trigger pull. This will give you better groups and . . . cleaner harvests!
