PASO ROBLES, Calif. -(Ammoland.com)- Dialing in the exact fit between rifle and rifleman is critical to precise long-range shooting. Now Weatherby shooters can achieve just that in the new Vanguard Adaptive Composite rifle.
It features a revolutionary, specially-designed stock that allows each owner to adjust pull length, comb height and buttstock angle for a true custom fit.
“At Weatherby, our creed is that Nothing Shoots Flatter, Hits Harder, or is More Accurate,” said Jason Evans, Vice President, Sales & Product Development of Weatherby, Inc. “That said, accuracy is the one Weatherby virtue that also rests squarely on the shooter’s shoulders. To perform at the highest level, the fit between gun and gunner is of utmost importance – which is why we worked so hard to develop the fully-adjustable, adaptive Vanguard,” Evans added.
Visually, the rifle’s attitude is as serious as its performance. Stock adjustments can be made quickly, whether in the shop or on-the-fly in the field. Rubberized grip panels ensure that wherever skin comes in contact with the weapon, a secure, comfortable, non-slip connection is made.
Within that adaptive stock lies the backbone of the Vanguard – a 20-inch #3 contour threaded barrel, chambered in either .223 REM, 6.5 Creedmoor or .308 WIN and guaranteed for SUB-MOA accuracy.
The barrel is cold hammer forged with a flush thread cap for fast, easy suppressor enhancement (suppressor not included). The blue steel is matte bead blasted for non-glare stealth.
True to the Vanguard line, this rifle has a match-grade, two-stage trigger that’s creep-free for consistent let-off and hand-honed for a clean, crisp break.
The bolt body is longitudinally fluted to reduce weight, decrease bearing surface area and eliminate binding for a butter-smooth action. A one-piece machined receiver comes standard with an integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity.
For shooters born to compete at the range, in the field or in their line of heroic work, the rifle must become an extension of themselves.
With the Weatherby Vanguard Adaptive Composite, this rifle adjusts to become that perfect extension.
