Weatherby Vanguard Sporter

Description

The Weatherby Vanguard Sporter is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in 15 different cartridges. It is one of 11 models in Weatherby’s Vanguard series, but what make it unique is that it has “A fancy” grade Monte Carlo
Turkish walnut stock and a rosewood fore-end, both of which are finished
in satin urethane.

Vanguard models share a number of common characteristics including a fully adjustable trigger that is initially factory-tuned to 3.5 pounds. It has a fluted bolt body that reduces surface area and weight. The rifle has a cocking indicator that visually indicates whether the it’s uncocked or cocked. Along with a hinged floorplate, all Vanguard models have a cold hammer forged barrel, meaning a machine carefully pushed a mandrel through it to rifle the bore.

Optional features include a drop-box magazine in lieu of a hinged steel bottom plate for an extra $55. The drop-box magazine allows multiple magazine use and also eliminates about a half pound of weight. The Sporter DBM version is available in .25-06 Remington, .270 Winchester, and .30-06 Springfield calibers.
