Paso Robles, Calif.—Weatherby Inc., legendary firearms manufacturer, is honored to introduce the Laminate H-Bar™ 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 hunting rifle —especially budget-friendly models. With its new Laminate H-Bar rifle, the company combines the best attributes of the Vanguard® with features deemed nonnegotiable by the bench rest and varmint hunting community.
The Vanguard® Laminate H-Bar 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 “bull” barrel measuring 0.740-inch at the muzzle. Twenty-two inches in length, the free-floating barrel has a bead-blasted, matte-blue finish to minimize glare.
The heart of the Laminate H-Bar rifle, the renowned Vanguard® action, is affixed to an oil finished birch laminate stock. The stock also features the Speedlock system, a quick and easy locking system for adjusting both length of pull and the height of the comb so that it can easily be customized to your exact shooting style. The full and lowered forend offers an improved grip for shooting while standing as well as a stud to which a bipod and/or sling can be attached.
As with other Vanguard® rifles, the Laminate H-Bar 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® Laminate H-Bar rifle is scheduled to hit dealer’s shelves by December 1, 2015 and will have an MSRP of $1,449. Contact your local authorized Weatherby® dealer to order yours today.
