Screech Owl Rifle .308 Winchester


The Screech Owl Rifle is built using the JTAC Industries Screech Owl 1500 Chassis and Howa 1500 Short Actions. This combination creates a portable, modular and affordable bolt action rifle platform. Whether you need a truck gun, lightweight hunting system, compact precision rifle or just something small to shoot the varmints with the Elf Owl Rifle can handle it.

  • Note that the "Pin and Weld" option requires that the customer send us a muzzle device to be permanently attached. We will cut the barrel based on the muzzle device length to total 16.1"
