Mark V Accumark

The Weatherby Mark V Accumark is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered for 15 cartridges. The Weatherby Mark V Accumark features a stainless steel barrel and receiver. In addition, the Accumark has 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 Accumark is equipped with a cocking indicator that visually indicates whether the rifle is uncocked or cocked. The Mark V also has a fluted barrel for reduced barrel weight.

Weatherby is notable for their bolt-action operating systems–a modified Model 54 action–which is an early 20th century design for centerfire cartridges. Weatherby’s Mark V’s bolt body is designed with six lugs (nine for magnums) that secures the bolt firmly into the receiver. With more lugs, or wider lugs, the bolt requires a short 54-degree lift for full rotation and chambering. Weatherby also strengthened the bolt body by milling it from a single piece of steel, so it can withstand more powerful cartridges.

Weatherby recommends the Mark V Accumark for hunting large game.
