Howa Talon Thumbhole Varminter Combo HWK86101P+ 22-250 Remington

The combo package included rings and base as well as a scope. The scope base was a quality product from Evolution Gun Works, (egw-guns.com). The bolt utilized two opposing lugs.
The Limbsaver buttpad went a long way in reducing recoil on its own. Inside the stock we found wrenches and a spare set of rubber inlays for the grip.
The vertical grip stock, which was more than a mere thumbhole, held a lot of appeal, in our view. The buttstock contained a heavy spring that counteracted recoil.
