Fingerprints and snowflakes aren’t the only things that are distinct. No two oak leaves are identical either. I’m proof of that.

I’m as inspiring to look at as I am to shoot – with guaranteed SUB-MOA accuracy to hit animals hard, right in the sweet spot. If you’re looking for pure class that packs a powerful punch, then I am the Vanguard for you.

  1. Phenomenal Rifle

    By Lee February 18, 2018

    Bought my Lazerguard 308 in December of 2014 as an early Christmas and Graduation present. Mounted a Vortex Diamondback 3x9 40 mm scope on it and sighted it in at 200 yards. Was able to group shots at 100 yards within 1 in circle. Trigger is crisp, action is smooth and this rifle is a dream to handle. Glad I bought it.

  2. Trigger creep

    By Dave September 25, 2017

    Beautiful rifle and fun to carry in the woods, albeit on the heavy side after a day of hiking in the Colorado Mountains. Do not like the factory 2 stage trigger system at all for carrying in the woods. At the range it is fine because one can take the time necessary to get used to the trigger creep and still shoot quarter sized groups. But in the field, the factory trigger is a handicap for the hunter as the trigger creep causes quick shots to be high,as the gun fires before the shooter is ready. The last thing you want in the field is a trigger that you have to second guess before making the shot that counts. I expected much more from a Weatherby product.

  3. Soooo Nice

    By J0hn0b0dy May 11, 2017

    I have two of them. The first, I convinced my wife that SHE wanted. She got the .308, but was put off by the recoil, so I bought a .223 for her and she's been happy ever since. Between the time when she bought the .308 and when she actually came to the range to shoot it, I acquired a 300 Wby Mag. Both rifles are exceptional values. They are beautiful, while functioning flawlessly. One reviewer mentioned creep in the trigger. Neither of mine have it. They're crisp as glass. They shoot sub MOA groups as long as you don't get them hot (read the manual). Once cooled, POI went back to exactly where it was 30 minutes before. They're gorgeous, sexy and wonderfully economical. I wish I could buy Lazerguard stocks to put my .257 and .338 Win Mag Vanguards in. They are truly things of beauty and they shoot about as perfectly as one can imagine, right out of the box.

  4. fantastic

    By Fatboy January 22, 2017

    I own 4 out of the 5 calibers and have fitted all 4 with leupold scopes. I just wish they would offer the lazerguard in 223 caliber.

    By mudhole December 12, 2016
