Paso Robles, Calif. – (Ammoland.com) – Weatherby Inc., legendary firearms manufacturer, announces the introduction of the Vanguard RealTree Xtra 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 Vanguard RealTree Xtra 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 24 inch, cold-hammer-forged, matte, bead blasted, blued finish barrel.
The heart of the RealTree Xtra rifle, the renowned Vanguard® action, is affixed to an injection molded Monte Carlo stock that features hard, textured forearm and grip areas, and a right side palm swell that aids in shooter comfort and control.
As with other Vanguard rifles, the RealTree Xtra 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 RealTree Xtra rifle is shipping now and has an MSRP of $749. Contact your local authorized Weatherby® dealer to order yours today.
