NEW! Howa Mini Action available in .204 and .223. Other short action calibers are coming. Chamber and bolt are 12% shorter than regular short actions with shorter bolt throw for faster reloads. 20" hammer forged barrel, three position safety and H.A.C.T. two-stage trigger. Factory equipped with a ten round, synthetic detachable magazine. Lightweight and Fast!


Interesting. Should make a nice light walk around gun, or make a good youth rifle depending on those other calibers.

I like the sound of this. I wonder what the twist of the barrel will be?

The Creedmoor I think is too long for the Mini action, but the 6.5 Grendel, PPCs. 6.8, 7.62X39, 300BO... are all possibilities.

Interested to see what the "real world" price will be. If it is quite a bit below MSRP, it will be a winner...
