The WEATHERBY Vanguard Weatherguard Rifle is equipped with a match quality, two-stage trigger (adjustable down to 2.5 lbs.) and a 3-position safety, with the middle position allowing the shooter to work the action while safety is still engaged. The Vanguard action incorporates a one-piece machined bolt body, fluted for reduction in 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, and the massive M-16-style extractor ensures reliable and positive extraction. Vanguard rifles have a one-piece machined receiver featuring an integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity, along with a one-piece trigger guard with a hinged floorplate for easy access to unfired cartridges in the magazine.
The Vanguard Weatherguard offers Cerakote protection. Its composite Monte Carlo Griptonite stock features pistol grip and forend inserts and a right side palm swell to aid in control and shooter comfort. The chrome-moly metalwork has a Cerakote Tactical Gray finish for exceptional weather and corrosion-resistance, including the cold hammer-forged barrel with a #2 contour.
