LSB#: 120309ML13

Title: Dickson – Howa “Golden Bear” .30-06 SPRG Bolt Action Rifle, W/ Scope

Make: Dickson-Howa, Japan

Model: Golden Bear

Serial Number: A1860H

Year of Manufacture: Modern

Caliber: .30-06 Springfield

Action Type: Bolt Action Internal Magazine

Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked ".30-06 Dickson-Howa Golden Bear". The right side of the barrel is marked "A1860H Proof Tested Japan". The right side of the receiver ring is marked "A1860H".

Barrel Length: About 24”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a hooded blade front sight, on a ramp and a 3x – 9x by 40 Charles Daly scope. The scope is clear, though just a bit dusty and the scope body and lenses are free of dents, chips and cracks.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are checkered and finished dark walnut. The stock shows scattered storage marking, some finish loss at the bottom of the pistol grip (both sides) and slight scratching. There is no splitting or cracking. Sling swivel studs are mounted front and rear. The LOP measures about 13 ½” and the stock rates in about Very Good – Fine overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The rifling is sharp and deep. The bore is bright. There is no apparent erosion.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 95% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows almost no wear, though there is some discoloration on the bolt and handle. The floorplate shows light marking and the forward screw on the floor plate shows some sort of erosion or corrosion – we cannot explain it. The Screw heads are sharp and undamaged. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The trigger pull is light, perhaps 3 lbs. We did not fire this rifle..

Box & Accessories: There is a scope and a sling provided.

Our Assessment: The Dickson-Howa Golden Bear is a copy of the Sako Finnbear. Dickson was a US importer who brought the Howa rifle in from Japan. The Howa is a good rifle and the Golden Bear is the same as a Smith and Wesson Model 1500 or Mossberg Model 1500. The Weatherby Vanguard is also very similar. There was a recall on some Howa/Smith and Wesson rifles. The flaw was that closing the bolt could cause the gun to accidentally fire without touching the trigger. Get your serial number checked to see if the recall applies to your firearm - Our research indicates that it does not, but just to be sure, check! If it does, get it fixed.( http://staging.shootersforum.com/rifles-rifle-cartridges/5041-howa-rifle-safety-notice-bolt-recalled.html). We do not believe that this particular rifle is in the recall range. This is just a nice solid rifle!

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
