Weatherby’s new Vanguard offering is the ideal weapon for a hunting trip in the wild. It’s light enough to be carried for long distances, yet it is sufficiently heavy to give the operator full confidence in their weapon. Moreover, its perfect balance allows it to be mounted quickly, even as it helps curtail recoil for faster follow-up shots.
The Vanguard First Lite is a state-of-the-art hunting implement that looks good and feels great in hand. The weapon is chambered for the powerful .270 caliber. However, the removable Accubrake muzzle makes shooting the formidable .270 round a breeze.
It has been suitably well equipped with a load of highly impressive features including a fluted 24-inch barrel that has been cold hammer forged to Weatherby’s exacting standards. Add to that a one-piece fluted bolt and removable brake. An enclosed bolt shroud and intuitive, three-position safety combine to give you a definitive edge in the field.
The Weatherby Vanguard: A Cut Above the Rest!
The trigger is a key differentiating factor that separates an ordinary rifle from a truly great one. Judging by this criterion, the Vanguard First Lite is miles better than its competitors in the same price range. It has an adjustable, two-stage trigger with a clearly defined wall. The light take up leads to a crisp and clean break, so you don’t ever miss that prized shot.
In fact, the Vanguard’s amazing trigger and highly accurate barrel combination effectively blur the line between a hunting weapon and a top-grade target-shooting rifle. Since it weighs a mere 7.5 pounds, you would barely feel it’s there—until you need to use it. At the same time, its accurate barrel ensures you can take it to the shooting range with total confidence.
This weapon has the traditional fit and finish of a high-quality Weatherby rifle. The silky smooth bolt-action operation ensures rapid loading and reloading of the weapon, while the Monte Carlo stock pattern features a right-side palm swell for maximum shooting comfort. Its grip areas and forearm have been thoughtfully checkered for a slip-free grip, even in wet and icy conditions.
The Weatherby Vanguard First Lite offers sub-MOA performance at a nominal cost. Add to that Weatherby’s legendary reliability, and you can see why it would make such an ideal weapon for your next hunting trip or even a visit to the range.
