The Howa and Mini Mauser all are drilled for scope mounts. My Cz had the mounts included. All are based on the Mauser..
Shes a sexy and....an accurate beast.. Its a 24 inch mid weight heavy barrel model, has an aluminum beding block in the stock, and now an adjustible trigger, about 3 years ago, I pulled that BSA Sweet 223 and threw a 4x12 Leupold Mark up on it.. With some Black Hills ammo you can shove one right up a groundhogs tailpipe..
Sometimes, I do get the new fangled commercial itch...
Shoots MOA with a cold barrel but multiple shots start to string....It has a very thin profile barrel.
Sounds just like my Mini14. After the first 3 rounds.. drop the magazine, and pull the rounds out and throw the remaining rounds at whatever your trying to hit, cause your chances of a direct hit are way better.
