What's the best way to mount a scope to a Howa 1500 Short Action?
The Howa 1500 short actions are legendary for precision perfection. From their cold hammer forged, lightweight, durable and remarkably accurate barrels with consistent bores and incredibly smooth surface. Their one-piece receiver with integral recoil lugs. To the forged steel bolt with two locking lugs, reliable M16-style ejector and extractor and tool-less take down design. Howa’s barreled actions are the best kept secret in shooting sports.
If you are looking to mount a scope on your Howa 1500, our 20 MOA picatinny scope mount is a great option and exactly what you need for your Howa 1500 bolt action rifle.

We recommend measuring the hole spacing in your receiver to confirm it matches with the dimensions we have published.
Why is the EGW scope mount the best for my Howa 1500?
Picatinny cross slots run the full length of the rail, which gives the shooter flexibility when mounting scope rings and other accessories. The channel in the center reduces the overall mass of the mount. Also, in many cases, it will not obstruct usage of factory iron sights. Our one-piece scope mounts are the obvious choice for hunters and tactical shooters alike.
We machine these in our shop using one of our machining centers. After machining, the mounts are tumbled, sand blasted, and Type II anodized for long lasting durability.
Should I use loctite when installing my picatinny scope mount?
We always recommend a drip of blue loctite or thread locker when installing your scope mounts (loctite is available through our website and is sold separately).
Do I need to torque my hardware when installing my picatinny scope mount?
We always recommend torquing the mounting hardware to 20 in/lbs unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer of the firearm.
