Paso Robles, Calif.—Weatherby Inc., legendary firearms manufacturer, is honored to introduce the Vanguard Weatherguard line of rifles, one of the latest iterations of the Vanguard series that debuted in the early 1970s.

Since that time, Vanguard rifles have redefined the level of performance that’s attainable from a production hunting rifle —especially budget-friendly models. With its new Weatherguard rifles, the company combines the best attributes of the Vanguard with features deemed nonnegotiable by dedicated hunters and shooters.

The Vanguard Weatherguard rifles are accompanied with an accuracy guarantee; when using premium ammunition, they will produce a three-shot group measuring 0.99-inch or less at 100 yds. from a cold barrel. All the metalwork is protected with Tactical Grey Cerakote, for exceptional weather and corrosion resistance.

The heart of the Weatherguard rifles, the renowned Vanguard action, is affixed to an injection molded Monte Carlo Griptonite stock that features pistol grip and forend inserts and a right side palm swell that aids in shooter comfort and control.

As with other Vanguard rifles, the Weatherguard rifles are equipped with a match-quality, two-stage trigger that’s user adjustable pull weight. It also has the familiar three-position safety and fluted bolt with dual-opposed locking lugs of its siblings.

The Weatherguard rifles are offered in four different configurations:

  • -The Weatherguard and Weatherguard DBM (Drop-Box Magazine), featuring a 24 inch, #2 contour barrel.
  • -The Weatherguard H-Bar which features a 22 inch, #3 contour, heavy barrel (.740 muzzle diameter).
  • -The Weatherguard Carbine features a lightweight, #1 contour, 20 inch barrel.

The Vanguard Weatherguard rifle is scheduled to hit dealer’s shelves by January 1, 2016. Contact your local authorized Weatherby dealer to order yours today.
