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!
