Bringing a wealth of chamberings to the legendary Weatherby® Mark V® platform the new Mark V Hunter is also fitted with a freshly-designed stock. Echoing the shape and ergonomics of the Mark V Backcountry 2.0 family of rifles that debuted earlier in 2021 the Hunter’s polymer stock features the same trim flat-bottomed forend ambidextrous palm swells aluminum pillar construction and is finished in a Urban & Black Speckle.
Threaded 1/2×28 for use with a suppressor or brake the Mark V Hunter’s barreled action is sealed under a shell of Cobalt Cerakote shielding it from the elements. A deeply-fluted bolt with removable knob not only trims a little weight and helps clear dust and debris it also reduces the bearing surface within the action resulting in smoother operation.
Designed to be the world’s strongest action the Mark V has a signature multi-lug bolt system inspired by the interrupted thread style of lockup. Available in both Standard and Magnum action sizes the Standard employs a six lug design while the beefier Magnum uses nine locking lugs enabling these actions to safely chamber the hottest commercially-available cartridges on the market. Other safety features include three rings of steel around the base of the cartridge when it’s in battery a fully-enclosed bolt shroud and three gas relief ports in the bolt body to vent pressure in the case of an ammunition failure.
