NRA Gun of the Week: Howa 1500 HCR Rifle

posted on October 21, 2017

The Howa HCR (Howa Chassis Rifle) is a 6.5 mm Creedmoor-chambered chassis rifle currently being imported by Legacy Sports Int’l. The rifle package commands a price of about $1,725, but what it provides is hard to beat: an Accurage Mag rifle chassis paired with the tried-and-true Howa 1500 action and a threaded, heavy contour 24” barrel—all backed the company’s sub-moa guarantee. The LUTH-AR MB3 adjustable buttstock enables shooters of all sizes to easily adapt to shooting this rifle system. If that weren’t enough, the package also includes a Nikko Stirling Diamond Long Range 4-16x50 mm optic and lifetime warranty.
