"Ok here is the scoop: We are working on a chassis design for the Howa Mini Action.
Expected release timeframe: summer 2019. We will share more details on the chassis as we get nearer to product release. For now though, check out the Howa barreled mini actions we have listed (they come in 223, 7.62x39, 300 Blackout and 6.5 Grendel) - and think about getting your parts kit together! They will build into the perfect hunting rifle for mid size game (deer, coyote, hog...) and they will be great for longer range precision target shooting too." - JSharps
