A Modern Company with a Classic Look
Founded in 1945 by Roy Weatherby, the company began its operations producing Mauser actions for a variety of companies. In 1956, it was able to expand beyond its initial offerings at the request of a Danish firm that called for 378 Weatherby Magnum actions to be produced. After showing the world his ability to great quality actions, Weatherby released the Mark V rifle in 1958. Unfortunately, by the 70s costs had risen too much and production for this rifle moved to Japan before returning again to the US in 1995. Now, Weatherby producing some of the most high quality rifles around, many built around powerful magnum cartridges to deliver extraordinary power. From their facilities in Paso Robles, California, they have become a well-respected name in the industry.
The Legendary Performance of the Mark V
The rifle that started it all, the Mark V still holds its place in the lineup as one of the most sought after guns Weatherby has to offer. Often considered to be the world’s strongest bolt action rifle, this advanced rifle platform uses the Accumark system developed by Weatherby to deliver solid performance with every shot you take. It features a free-floating, #3 contour, fluted stainless steel barrel, which not only provides great accuracy but also helps maintain that accuracy by dissipating heat more quickly. The CNC-machined aluminum plate stiffens the receiver, given a stable and rigid platform that keeps the gun working at its best.
As you would expect, the basic configuration is ready to perform. It comes with a black stock that features gray spiderweb accents and is available in a wide variety of calibers, ranging from .240 WBY Mag to .340 WBY Mag. In addition to its standard configuration, it can also be found with more specialized stocks or other signature features. One example is the Dangerous Game model, which offers an express ramp rear sight and a hooded barrel band front.
The Vanguard Rifle System for Extraordinary Accuracy
Of course, the performance of the legendary Mark V comes with a hefty price tag and those who want something more affordable might be more interested in checking out the Vanguard series. With caliber options ranging from .223 Rem to .338 Win Mag (including a few WBY mag options), this more affordable model comes standard with a lightweight synthetic stock. It uses a fluted bolt and a cold hammer forged barrel, which works to provide guaranteed sub-MOA accuracy. Combined with the match-grade 2-stage trigger, it delivers when you need it most.
Other Weatherby Rifles for Sale
In addition to the basic models offered above, Weatherby also produces some more specialized options for those who have a specific need in mind. The WBY-X series include both Vanguard and Mark V rifles offered with specialized camo patterns and other popular finishes. This gives the same level of performance as these rifles but provides a more unique look. Similarly, the Threat Response Rifles (TRR) are built to military and law enforcement standards, offering helpful features that will appeal to the tactical shooter. For those who want something they can show off, the Range Certified rifles come with a certificate showing the sub-moa accuracy, ensuring that the rifle can achieve a 3-shot group of .99” or less at 100 yards out.
Autoloading Shotguns to Use In The Field
Since they were already producing high quality rifles, it made sense that Weatherby would move to shotguns, and the autoloading Element was the natural progression. Built with a chrome-lined barrel and chrome-plated bolt, it was designed to last. It is offered in 12, 20, or 28 gauge and is available with an inertia operated action to provide reliable use in the field.
Pump Action Shotguns You Can Trust
Of course, many shooters today prefer a good pump action, which is where the less expensive PA-08 Synthetic shotgun comes into play. Offering both 12 and 20 gauge models, this shotgun gives similar performance to the auto-loader but it features that iconic pump action. Its stock is made with lightweight and durable injection-molded materials to provide a construction you can count on. The standard model includes a bead front sight and a simple trigger for accurate shots.
