Weatherby Introduces The Vanguard Accuguard Rifle ~ VIDEO
Article first appeared at Ammoland.com
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.
