I would like to get a Howa action/barrel assembly (or the rifle). I understand Turner's sells, but there stores are all in SoCal. I am not sure if they ship, but I am near San Francisco. Are there any local dealers who are willing to order the rifle (I am not sure from who)?

check galleryofguns.com, see if any shops selling the particular model you want are listed.

Check out CDNN for Howa rifles; page 49 of their current catalog. They won't ship handguns to CA, but will ship bolt actions. You can get the cheapest one for the action, or more for the barrel. The stock is pretty much crap. Either way, I think they have the best prices on Howas.

Depending on how much you want to spend... Some times the rifle is cheaper than the action/bbl. I don't get it..
But you can check out legacy sports website as reference and go from there.

I've got a Howa .204 barreled action. I shopped around a lot and ultimately did business with my local ffl. Anyway, CDNN has the best price one the heavy barrel howas I think.

Try calling Metaldog Tactical in San jose. Ask Tunis to see if he can order you a complete Howa rifle. I was looking into ordering one for myself. Their website is www.metaldogtactical.com

I bought a Howa .223 from CDNN. It's my only experience with them, all went smooth. Although I have heard a few negative things about them. Things like slow shipping, being overly "pushy". YMMV

I'm very pleased with my Howa rifles. I have two, 308 & 223, both with the 20" heavy barrel

I'm looking at a Howa 243 Win. When the time comes, I plan on ordering from bud's and using Roger's Relics as the FFL.
