The Mark V® Dangerous Game Rifle is designed specifically for the person who makes their living as a professional hunter or the hunter who is serious about their pursuit of dangerous game. No-nonsense design and dependable performance are the hallmarks of this working rifle. It features a hand-laminated, raised comb, Monte Carlo composite stock (a combination of Aramid, graphite unidirectional fibers and fiberglass), with a CNC-machined aluminum bedding block, combined with our legendary short bolt lift Mark V action and a chrome-moly Criterion™ barrel by Krieger™. As with all Weatherby stocks, our cast-off design allows for perfect eye-to-sight alignment, a feature even more important on a rifle used for dangerous game. Black oxide matte finish on all metalwork reduces reflection and glare. An adjustable ramp, shallow gold-filled "V" rear sight and barrel band hooded front sight with large gold bead provides for immediate sight alignment and target acquisition. A Packmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad reduces felt recoil and rounds out this distinctive rifle.
