New for 2020: Howa M1100 Rimfire Series

posted on June 30, 2020
Through Legacy Sports International, Japanese gunmaker Howa imports a number of unique, affordable rifles, including its M1500 series of centerfire bolt-action rifles, as well as its unique Mini Action bolt guns. For 2020, Howa expanded into the growing market of precision rimfire rifles with its all-new M1100 series of guns.

Each Howa M1100 is outfitted with an 18" barrel, complete with a No. 4 profile and a threaded muzzle. The bolts are constructed with an oversized, tactical-style handle, and the guns are fed with 10-round detachable magazines. Two magazines ship with each gun.

The M1100 barreled action sits inside a synthetic Tactical/Varmint stock, which features a flat beavertail fore-end designed for use off shooting rests and bags.

At the rear of the stock, precision shooters will enjoy a generous, vertical pistol-grip stock, complete with a butthook that allows shooters to anchor the rifle and fine-tune elevation adjustment with rear bags and their support hand.

Three calibers are available in the Howa M1100 Rimfire Series: .22 Long Rifle, .22 WMR and .17 HMR. The chamberings come with compatible twist rates of 1:16", 1:16" and 1:9", respectively. The guns measure 37" long and weigh in at 6.3 pounds, unloaded.

Legacy Sports offers its Howa M1100 Rimfire Series of guns with either a black or OD green stock finish. A scoped rifle package complete with a 3.5-10x44 mm Nikko Stirling Gamepro riflescope is available as well.

Suggested retail pricing on the Howa M1100 Rimfire Series starts at $478. For more information, visit
