Paso Robles, Calif. – (Ammoland.com) – Weatherby Inc., legendary firearms manufacturer, announces the introduction of the Accuguard rifle, 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 rifle —especially budget-friendly models.
The Accuguard rifle is accompanied with an accuracy guarantee; when using premium ammunition, it will produce a three-shot group measuring 0.99-inch or less at 100 yds. from a cold barrel. Aiding this assurance is a cold-hammer-forged, No. 3-contour, fluted, “bull” barrel measuring 0.740-inch at the muzzle. Twenty-four inches in length, the free-floating barrel is made from 410 series stainless steel that has been bead blasted to a matte finish and has a recessed target crown to enhance accuracy and protect rifling.
The heart of the Accuguard, the renowned Vanguard action, is affixed to a hand-laminated, raised comb Monte Carlo, composite stock with full length aluminum bedding plate, matte gel coat finish, and spiderweb accents.
As with other Vanguard rifles, the Accuguard is equipped with a match-quality, two-stage trigger that’s user adjustable for pull weight. It also has the familiar three-position safety and fluted bolt with dual-opposed locking lugs of its siblings.
The Vanguard Accuguard rifle will begin shipping now and has an MSRP of $1099. Contact your local authorized Weatherby dealer to order yours today.
