Reno, NV -( Gene Lumsden, CEO of Legacy Sports International, Inc., is excited to announce the newest chambering of the Howa Mini Action rifle! Now available in .222 Remington.

The .222 Remington cartridge is a classic varmint cartridge with outstanding accuracy potential. This low recoil, flat shooting and very low ballistic coefficient cartridge paired with the precision of Howa barreled actions make this a target and varmint hunters dream.

The chamber and bolt of the new Mini Action are significantly shorter (approx. 12%) than regular short actions. This feature produces a shorter bolt throw for faster reloads and less weight for the overall gun. In fact, this rifle without scope weighs just 5.7 lbs. It also comes with 20” drawn barrel, three position safety and HACT two-stage trigger. A drawn barrel produces better accuracy than a forged barrel, because they are not extruded and stretched, and do not begin with billet stock.

Rather, they begin as extrusion tubes that are swaged, drawn and then roll leveled before cutting. Drawn barrels are also heat treated. This method produces less stress on the metallurgy and leads to a straighter barrel, producing better accuracy.

The Howa Mini Action Rifles are factory equipped with ten round, synthetic, detachable magazines and utilize a lightweight composition stock, which also reduces weight. Scope packages are also available with the Howa Mini Action rifles, using the new, Nikko Stirling Panamax rifle scope. The Nikko Stirling Panamax scopes offer 20% greater field-of-view than average 1 inch scopes, and come with a half Mil Dot reticle with dual color red/green illuminated reticle and a lifetime warranty, among other great features.

Howa Mini Action rifles are available with high tech stocks in OD Green, Black or camo dipped in Kryptek Highlander with lightweight, standard and heavy barrel options.

On Brownell website on the gun details it states they are hammer forged . So which is it ? Forged or drawn ?

Aaron Jacoby

I like the idea of this rifle, it would be perfect in 6.8 spc.


The Grendel is superior at all ranges.

Peter Sands

Are the Grendel chambered rifles going to be available in Australia..? Peter

Clint Johnson

Very awesome. Love the 6.5 grendal! This will be my new boat gun while going after deer and coyotes in the big marshes here in SE Wisconsin.

Small frame shooters are going to really appreciate this rifle for medium size hunting. The grendal is such a great choice good work Howa!

Bob Weeks

Will the Howa Mini Action be available in 6.8 SPC?

Blair Munro

Are you likely to produce this model with either a flush fitting detachable magazine or a floor plate?


Pretty cool !
