Weatherby announced they will be producing the new Vanguard 2 Back Country rifles in 2013. Â The Back Country rifles feature many of the same features found in other Weatherby rifles, but the guns are designed with an eye toward reliability in rugged, off-the-beaten-path areas.
First of all, the rifles are lightweight, coming in at just 6.75 pounds. Â This is critical for anyone who has to carry their gun over long distances, especially in rugged regions with significant elevation changes.
The Back Country’s stock is synthetic with spiderweb accents. Â The stock is pillar bedded and in the Monte Carlo form. Â The butt end of the stock is topped by a Pachmayr Decelerator pad to assist withÂ absorbingÂ recoil.
