Weatherby Vanguard Weatherguard Features

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 Weatherguard 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 Weatherguard rifle allows you to take it into the nastiest environments without a single worry about how it will perform. The Monte Carlo stock is made of ultra-tough synthetic and all the metalwork has maximum protection with a great-looking Cerakote finish.

The name Weatherby has become synonymous with accuracy and quality and, although their "Entry Level" rifle, the Vanguard is no exception to their reputation of producing fine hunting firearms. This hand fitted rifle features a one-piece machined fluted bolt body, accurate cold hammer-forged barrel and match quality adjustable two-stage trigger. This specific Howa Vanguard model is the Weatherguard Bronze which has a Cerakote finished barrel and action for superior weather resistance. Regardless of the weather conditions, the Vanguard Weatherguard Bronze delivers exceptional reliability and aesthetics at a reasonable price.

The Weatherby Vanguard Family

In the 1960s, 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 new 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. As in the Mark V, the recessed bolt face protruded into the breech of the barrel, fully encapsulating the cartridge and providing an additional level of safety. 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 gave 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 FASTEST, FLATTEST SHOOTING RIFLES on the market, with a number of standard calibers available as well. The modern Vanguard carries a SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee and ships with a crisp two-stage trigger, making it what we feel is the best value in the rifle market today. Connect with Weatherby!
