Legacy Sports International is a Reno, Nevada, based company that is the sole supplier for Howa rifles not just nationally but globally. Howa rifles are manufactured by the Howa Machinery Company, which was originally founded in 1907 and is known for producing firearms both for the military and civilians. The 1500 line of rifles has a reputation for accuracy and, according to the company, less heat drift, along with the ability to function reliably right out of the box. All rifles in the 1500 line have a three-position safety and two-stage trigger.
New from Legacy Sports is the Howa 1500 chambered in .300 Win Mag, with a 24″ heavy barrel with a #6 contour. Using a heavy barrel rather than a standard hunting barrel lends the rifle greater stability as well as improved heat dissipation. The new rifle is available with a Hogue stock in one of three colors: OD Green, Black, or Kryptek Highlander. It also comes with or without one of two scopes: the Nikko Stirling GameKingor the Targetmaster 4-16×44. Barreled actions are blued on guns with a black or OD Green stock; guns with a Kryptek Highlander finish on their stock are Cerakoted in Austrian Brown.
