Howa 1500 sporter

Post by poppy mae » 14 Aug 2018, 22:33

Has anyone any experience of lightening a Howa trigger using a spring kit ? Reason out monday with a keeper friend , had a cracking shot on a vixen with his 243 , said could do with the trigger been something done , heavy and stiff , looked either have someone polish it or a spring kit , not superlight but tidy, ,any advice ?

Mine was in the price of the rifle . Which was very cheap. Can't fault them.

I think it was around £60, may be a bit more. That is alot cheaper than a new trigger. And you wont be disappointed
