The Weatherby Vanguard delivers the unmatched knockdown power of both Weatherby Magnum and standard calibers, while providing the confidence of guaranteed SUB-MOA accuracy. The Vanguard Back Country is ideal for long treks on mountainous terrain with a weight of only 6-3/4 pounds. The 24" cold hammer-forged barrel is fluted for weight-reduction and given a Cerakote Tactical Grey finish for exceptional weather- and corrosion-resistance. The raised comb, Monte Carlo stock is constructed for hand-laminated carbon fiber composite with an aluminum bedding plate, a matte gel coat charcoal finish, and light grey spiderweb accents. The Vanguard's match quality, two-stage trigger is creep free for consistent let-off. The Pachmayr Decelerator pad on the buttstock lowers felt recoil to increase comfort and improve accuracy on follow-up shots.
