Introduced in 1970, the Weatherby Vanguard action, based on a Mauser-style, dual opposed lug design, takes many of its cues from the legendary Mark V action. It features a one-piece machined receiver, a fully enclosed bolt sleeve and three rings of steel surrounding the casehead. Other popular Vanguard features include a 24-inch hammer-forged barrel, an injection-molded, Monte Carlo composite stock, a factory-tuned, fully-adjustable trigger, and a low density recoil pad. This special scoped package includes a Leupold VX-I 3-9x40MM scope with a duplex reticle fully multicoated lens that's water and fog proof and comes with a full unlimited lifetime warranty. The scope and the metal work on the rifle have been given a matte black finish to reduce glare.
