Vanguard Features

EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE IS STANDARD.

GUARANTEED SUB-MOA ACCURACY

All Weatherby® Vanguard® rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99" or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) when used with Weatherby® factory or premium ammunition.




MONTE CARLO GRIPTONITE® STOCK WITH INSERTS

Provides lightweight and durable performance year after year. Combines modern synthetic materials with the legendary Weatherby® raised comb Monte Carlo design. Our special pistol and forend inserts provide a firm, non-slip grip, while a right side palm swell aids in control and shooter comfort (available on select Vanguard® rifles).




MATCH QUALITY, TWO-STAGE TRIGGER

"Creep free" for consistent let-off. Each trigger is hand-honed, factory-tuned and inspected for a clean, crisp break, improving shooter accuracy. Trigger housing is constructed of lightweight alloy and is fully adjustable down to 2.5 lbs.



FULLY ENCLOSED BOLT SLEEVE

Redirects high-pressure gases and brass particles in the event of a case rupture or pierced primer. Shorter bolt sleeve helps to reduce overall weight.



VANGUARD RECOIL PAD

All Vanguard® rifles feature a specially-fit, low density recoil pad. This technologically superior material significantly reduces felt recoil.



FLUTED BOLT BODY

Longitudinal flutes reduce weight and bearing surface area, while eliminating binding for smooth action. Three gas ports allow high-pressure gases to escape laterally in the event of an accidental case rupture.



3-POSITION SAFETY

Middle position allows shooter to work the action while safety is still engaged.




COLD HAMMER FORGED BARREL
