I’m looking for a 223 in a nice bolt gun. My criteria is 20” or less barrel length. Synthetic or carbon stock. Want to be around 6# or less just rifle.

I’d love to have a KS, but will consider other quality little rifles.

Thanks
Nick

Go with a Weatherby Vanguard or get the exact same Howa barreled action from Brownell's and stock it yourself. Either way you will be getting a hinged steel floorplate/ bottom metal. The lower price offerings from Ruger and Savage are plenty accurate, but have too much "plastic" for my tastes.

I have a howa 1500 for trade/sale if you are interested.
It has less than 1
80 rounds through it.
I am looking for a deer gun for my grandson.
Something 260, 7-08 or 308
Would be great or pm me for a cash price.
Thanks

Ringworm, I had a RAR and like an idiot sold it. My son shot his first deer with it. It was the compact version. I wish I had it back. I sell rifles and most of the time regret it🤦🏻‍♂️ like a 308 I just sold.

I have a howa in 223. Great little shooter. Was kids' first deer rifle. Nice smaller rifle.

I am interested. Could you PM me the weight of rifle? I saw it was a short barrel and short LOP, but weight for me is a pretty important factor.

I’ll be on the road most the f the day tomorrow. So a response may be a little delayed.

Thanks
Nick

Remington 700 XHR's were the VTR's non ported version. One I've seen shot outstanding.

Didn’t I see a sako in here recently?
Not sure if it meets all the criteria. I have one from the 60’s that is disgustingly accurate so I have a hard time telling someone to not buy one of those
Good luck!

A 75 Finnlight would be the only thing I’d consider in from Sako for this specific gun. Not sure they made one in 223? I’ve had 25 Sako’s over the years. All of them shot well and some exceptionally well YET I was dumb and sold them…

Christensen has a ridgeline scout 223
16” barrel I believe. Aics mags 1-8 twist

Not cheap but a friend has one and it’s a shooter with 75bthp and 77tmk so far.

For conseration, here is a Steyr Ultralight chambered for the 223 Remington, 1 in 9" twist.

IIRC the barrel length is 20"

Price negotiable, with or without scope and rings/bases.

GWB,

That is a beautiful rifle! I’ve always loved those little Steyr UL’s. If it wasn’t such a nice stocked rifle I’d probably be interested. Thank you for sharing though!
