Weatherby's Vanguard rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99" or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. Vanguard rifles are equipped with a match quality, two-stage trigger (adjustable down to 2.5 lbs.) and a 3-position safety, with the middle position allowing the shooter to work the action while safety is still engaged. The Vanguard action incorporates a one-piece machined bolt body, fluted for reduction in weight and bearing surface area, while eliminating binding for smooth action. Three gas ports allow high-pressure gases to escape laterally in the event of an accidental case rupture, and the massive M-16-style extractor ensures reliable and positive extraction. Vanguard rifles have a one-piece machined receiver featuring an integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity, along with a one-piece trigger guard with a hinged floorplate for easy access to unfired cartridges in the magazine. The Vanguard Modular Chassis model features a CNC-machined, hard anodized, 6061 aluminum chassis with Hole spacing for Magpul L5 (11-slot) and L3 (7-slot) rails. It has a fully adjustable LUTH-AR MBA-1 buttstock and a Hogue OverMolded grip with finger grooves. The chrome-moly metalwork has a bead blasted matte metal finish. This model has a blued, 20" free-floated, cold hammer-forged barrel with a #3 contour and threaded muzzle. It includes a detachable 10-round polymer magazine.
