In the 1960's, Roy Weatherby recognized the need for a more affordable rifle that could chamber his signature magnum cartridges. Having just partnered with Howa to produce Mark V actions and seeing the precision and attention to detail that this Japanese manufacture provided, the Vanguard project was born. Starting with a Howa two-lug push-feed action, a number of Weatherby signature safety features were incorporated, including a fully shrouded bolt and three gas ports on the bolt body, both providing protection in the event of an ammunition failure. A hammer forged barrel brought both accuracy and longevity not typically seen in mass-produced cut-rifled barrels of the day, while the M-16 style extractor gives great purchase on the cartridge rim for consistent and reliable extraction. A fluted bolt body similar to the Mark V creates smoother operation when the rigors of the hunt leave the rifle dusty and dirty. The result was a smooth-running push-feed capable of handling Weatherby Magnums at a price more Americans could afford. The modern Vanguard carries a Sub-MOA accuracy guarantee and ships with a crisp two-stage trigger, making it what feels like what's the best value in the rifle market today. A Monte Carlo stock provides lightweight and durable performance year after year. Its one-piece forged and machined receiver features integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity. One-piece trigger guard with hinged floorplate provides easy access to unfired cartridges in the magazine. The Vanguard rifle also features a specially-fit, low density recoil pad. This technologically superior material significantly reduces felt recoil. Lastly, the three-position safety allows shooter to work the action while safety is still engaged. The Vanguard HUSH Edition is sleek, lightweight, and incredibly accurate. Full Graphite Black Cerakote finish on barreled action prevents corrosion while accenting the straight fluted #2 contour barrel. The Vanguard HUSH Edition features a unique color pattern that highlights the current trends of a cement gray stock base with black webbing for texture and appeal. The 1/2x28tpi threaded barrel includes both a seamless thread protector and Accubrake ST for the shooters preference in shooting style.
