New Weatherby Guns for 2014

Weatherby SA-459 Reaper

Weatherby will be bringing out a number of new guns in 2014.  We’ve got a sneak peak into two of the new shotguns today.

SA-459 Black Reaper TR

The SA-459 is a semi-automatic shotgun designed for home defense or tactical purposes.  The guns are made in Turkey, which has become a respectable off-shore location for quality shotguns.  The SA-459 TR has a rubberized pistol grip, a machined receiver and an 18 1/2″ chrome lined barrel with a ported choke tube.


Weatherby Vanguard Back Country Rifles

Weatherby Back Country

Weatherby announced they will be producing the new Vanguard 2 Back Country rifles in 2013.  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.  This is critical for anyone who has to carry their gun over long distances, especially in rugged regions with significant elevation changes.

Weatherby Stock

The Back Country’s stock is synthetic with spiderweb accents.  The stock is pillar bedded and in the Monte Carlo form.  The butt end of the stock is topped by a Pachmayr Decelerator pad to assist with absorbing recoil.
