Weatherby Introduces The New Mark V Rifle – Modernizing The Industry Standard For Rifles Once Again

Paso Robles, Calif.—Introducing the New Mark V featuring the first significant refinements of this classic rifle since its original introduction in 1958.

“Our unrelenting pursuit of excellence led us to the development of the New Mark V,” said Adam Weatherby, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the company that bears his family name. “The rifle features our new LXX Trigger, a highly refined, ergonomically enhanced stock, a hand- lapped barrel, and a Sub-MOA accuracy guarantee. 2016 ushers in the next era in the legendary life of the rifle that changed shooting forever.”

The New Mark V stocks have been physically enhanced with a slimmer forearm and sharper, more distinctive lines and contours. The grip diameter has been reduced, a slight right-hand palm swell has been added, and overall weight decreased. These refinements provide better fit and feel for a wider range of shooters. The lighter weight results in increased comfort, control, quicker to the shoulder mounting, and faster target acquisition.

The new Weatherby LXX Trigger increases performance and shooter accuracy. The trigger’s surfaces are precision ground, polished, and overall tolerances refined. A new, wider trigger face boosts trigger-to- finger contact for a more consistent and comfortable pull. Adjustable down to 2.5 lbs., the new Weatherby LXX Trigger will amaze you with every single round fired.

The New Mark V rifles all come with a SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee (3-shot group measuring .99” or less at 100 yards). Our hand-lapped barrels ensure that the bullet’s flight path will be true and consistent. Now, no matter which Weatherby rifle you buy, whether it’s an Ultra Lightweight for sheep hunting in Alaska or an Accumark for whitetails in Texas, you can trust every shot will be right on the money – guaranteed.

It’s all about enhancing the shooter experience. The New Mark V has been redefined to maximize fit, feel, and performance, making it the best rifle on the planet.
