Hello everyone,

I just purchased a Howa Alpine mountain Rifle from "Buds Gun Shop" I have wanted one for a while and finally found one in stock and purchased it, I have been following/ reading review on this rifle for some time and have read always great things. I mounted a Leupold VX5 HD on it, as I was mounting the scope it hit me the bolt and bottom metal for magazine (internal) and trigger guard are not cerakoted? I called Legacy and they took my serial number and told me that my rifle was a newer model/ make and they were not cerakoted, is this accurate?

They told you the rifle you have is a “newer model / make”
Are you sure Buds sent you an Alpine MT rifle? They were discontinued in 2017. All of them that I’ve seen have been cerakoted.

Have a Howa 1500 in with the brown cerakote, had the rifle bedded into a Custom Stock and some of the release agent stuck to the action on the outside, when I tried to clean it off it scraped up the cerakote. Any way to just touch up a few spots of it? It is not horrible looking but defiantly noticeable.

Just purchased a Howa 1500 Hogue Gameking in .270 with a scope package. Bid at $450 kind of on an impulse. Did I make the right choice? Was looking at other budget entry level rifles as this is my first big caliber center fire. Stressing over the purchase and telling the wife lol
