Sniper Central : Howa 1500 Entry Package

Rifle packages from Sniper Central are a complete ready to go package that allows the shooter to be out on the range immediately after receiving the package. The rifles are put together using a factory built barreled action and then we put it into the stock, mount the base, rings and scope and then test fire the rifle to zero the scope. The package price includes the completed rifle, scope, bipod, and case with everything assembled. The stocks are custom ordered per customer, and while a bit slower, it does allow us to get you the exact rifle you want. Take a look at the details and prices below and contact us if you have any questions.

The rifles come completely assembled and zeroed at 100 yards. We fire the minimum amount of rounds to zero the rifle, usually 3-6 rounds. With only this few of rounds fired it should not interfere with the barrel break-in procedure by the owner if they elect to do so. Be sure to click on the details of the calibers and check the twist rates to determin if they will work for the loads you want to use. Unfortunately the stocks take a while to get from the time we place the order and as such we cannot provide an exact build time for the rifles but an estimate is provided below. The exact package options may change as new products become available and we test them for use on these packages. Because we are using factory barreled actions the performance of the rifle cannot be guaranteed but they all seem to be shooting around .5 - .75 MOA.

Over all we have been very pleased with the performance of these rifles compared to the price point and they have been enjoyable to put together. The goal of these rifles is to get individual and agencies that need a long range rifle into the game quickly and at a very good price but yet still provide the required performance needed for precision short and long range engagements. We have both a Remington and a Howa entry package that we use during our long range shooting classes, and we routinely shoot them out to 1000 yards with good results.

We start with factory barreled actions and we then put them in the Bell & Carlson Medalist stock with a full aluminum bedding block. The barrels are free floated all the way to the action. Combined with an EGW 20 MOA or 15 MOA rail (depending on scope selected) and Burris XTR rings we mount the scope. The base scope is the new Bushnell Elite 10x40 Tactical, which we feel is about the minimum quality tactical scope we would use. There are other optional scopes and if you have something in mind that is not listed, let us know, we typically can get any scope you would like. There are several other common options listed as well, which all allow you to create a unique rifle package to suit your needs.

IMPORTANT: Please read the details about the purchase process for these packages.

Law Enforcement & Military Trade In - If you are looking to replace or upgrade your deparment's current sniper rifle(s), ask about our trade-in program.
