The Vanguard action incorporates many of the most popular features of the Weatherby Mark V. It features a one piece fluted bolt with three gas ports and two locking lugs for a 90-degree bolt lift. The bolt shroud is fully enclosed for extra strength and structural integrity, and features a traditional side release of the bolt assembly. Embellishments such as a knurled bolt knob add to the beauty and value of this popular rifle. The bottom metal features lightweight alloy construction with the floorplate release located on the outside of the trigger guard for easy access. The Vanguard also carries a Weatherby standard cocking indicator for an additional measure of safety. A fully adjustable trigger provides greater flexibility to hone the Vanguard to individual shooter wants and needs.
