Mark V Lazermark

The Weatherby Mark V Lazermark is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in five calibers. The Mark V line is Weatherby’s premium grade rifles.

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.

The Weatherby Mark V Lazermark features an engraved wood Monte Carlo stock and fore-end with a laser engraved oak leaf pattern. In addition, the Mark V Lazermark has a steel barrel and receiver with a high-luster blue finish. The Mark V Lazermark is equipped with a fully adjustable trigger that is initially factory-tuned to 3.5 pounds. Its bolt has fluting, which reduces surface area in turn weight. The Mark V Lazermark also has a cocking indicator that visually indicates whether the rifle is uncocked or cocked and a Pachmayr Decelerator brand recoil pad.

Weatherby recommends the Mark V Lazermark for hunting large game.
