Weatherby's Vanguard rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99" or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. Vanguard rifles are equipped with a match quality, two-stage trigger (adjustable down to 2.5 lbs.) and a 3-position safety, with the middle position allowing the shooter to work the action while safety is still engaged. The Vanguard action incorporates a one-piece machined bolt body, fluted for reduction in weight and bearing surface area, while eliminating binding for smooth action. Three gas ports allow high-pressure gases to escape laterally in the event of an accidental case rupture, and the massive M-16-style extractor ensures reliable and positive extraction. Vanguard rifles have a one-piece machined receiver featuring an integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity, along with a one-piece trigger guard with a hinged floorplate for easy access to unfired cartridges in the magazine. The Vanguard RC model is range certified for supreme accuracy, and comes with printout from Oehler Ballistic Imaging System, including specific load/ballistic data and a computer image of the actual 3-shot group. It is signed and certified by Ed or Adam Weatherby. The composite stock has a raised Monte Carlo cheekpiece and is pillar-bedded. It has a bead blasted matte metal finish and a #2 barrel contour. Vanguard RC models have a Range Certified engraved floorplate. This Vanguard RC model has a green stock with spiderweb accents and a 24" barrel.
