The Mark V Ultra Lightweight gives you everything a custom-built lightweight does at half the price. It tips the scales at just 6 3/4 pounds, making it the ideal choice for packing into mountainous terrain or for all-day hunts. Based on the Mark V action, it features a chrome moly receiver, with weight-trimming alloy follower and floorplate. Deepened and widened flutes on the bolt reduce weight, along with a skeletonized bolt handle and bolt sleeve. Weight-reducing flutes are also employed on the 410 Series stainless steel 26" special contour barrel (.583 muzzlediameter), which features an accuracy-enhancing recessed field crown. Rounding out the Ultra Lightweight is a specially-designed, hand-laminated, raised comb, Monte Carlo composite stock (a combination of Aramid, graphite unidirectional fibers and fiberglass), precisely-inletted to accept a molded-in, CNC-machined aluminum bedding plate that stiffens the receiver area of the rifle when the barreled action is secured to the block. A Pachmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad dissipates recoil. Flat shooting. Hard hitting. Ultra lightweight.
