Bringing a wealth of chamberings to the legendary Weatherby Mark V platform the 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 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 Smoke & Burnt Bronze Speckle.
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.
Threaded 1/2×28 for use with a suppressor or brake the Mark V Hunter’s barreled action is sealed under a shell of Burnt Bronze Cerakote shielding it from the elements. A deep-fluted bolt trims a little weight while also reducing the bearing surface within the action resulting in smoother operation. An extended removable bolt knob allows for a more precise bolt throw while giving the shooter options to suit their personal preference.
