Howa 308 20" heavy barrel paired with a KRG target rifle stock with adjustable cheekpiece. The Howa 1500 represents an excellent value hunting rifle.
• 20" drawn steel heavy barrel, three position safety, and H.A.C.T.
• Two-stage trigger
• Forged, one-piece bolt w/ two locking lugs
The KRG (Kinetic Research Group) Bravo provides you with the essential chassis benefits combined with conventional target/varmint ergonomics all at a modest price. If you’re looking for your perfect balance in Howa 1500 Chassis, Bravo is exactly what you need.
The Bravo is one of the most comfortable stocks available but that's just the beginning. The price will make you and your wallet overjoyed.
The precisely machined bedding area will put your action in its happy place nearly like it was custom bedded in there. The full length stiff aluminum backbone will not allow the forend to flex on you but does allow design modularity with loads of accessories and even other KRG chassis.
The ergonomic adjustments are just what you need to fit your frame so you can pull off the difficult shots. Of course it takes AICS mags right out of the box.
Bravo chassis now come with polymer mag release button and still come with the 1-3 LOP spacer kit which allows LOP up to 14" approx, more spacers available for longer LOP.
It's light. It's comfortable. It's modular. It's good looking. You will love it.
