Just found your forum and couldn't join fast enough!
I have a Howa rifle in .243 that I just bought and was wondering if there is a place I can look up the serial number? It is newer than the recalled rifles but not sure of the date of production. Thanks for any help you may have on this.:confused:

Welcome to the Shooter's Forum, Glad you joined us.

Did a quick google on "Howa 1500 date of manufacture" and didn't find anything for you except for the recall notices. There was a site called www.justanswer.com where someone asked a similar question, but you have to register and pay ($3) to get an answer. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I assume you now it is exactly the same rifle at the Weatherby Vanguard; but most shoot better than the Vanguards.

they still sell the howa 1500, but they also sold them as Mossbergs and Smith&Wessons before getting in bed with Weatherby.

Post the SN as 1234XXX and maybe some one has a close SN and can help you date it.

Welcome to the forum.
