Weatherby Mark V Threat Response Rifle (TRR)

mk_5_sub_moa_trr_1-tfb-tm

Weatherby’s 2010 product line-up includes the new tactical-style Mark V Threat Response Rifle (TRR). In terms of bolt-action rifles, the term “tactical” can mean it is either designed for close up urban police work or for long range military sniping. With this rifle not being chambered in anything less powerful than the .300 Win. Mag, it it definitely in the latter category.

The Mark V action is a medium to high-end rifle action, with the most basic Mark V rifle starting at $1200. I would class the TTR as a custom-grade rifle.

It comes with Weatherby’s well-known SUB-MOA guarantee, although sub-moa performance would be expected from any rifle in its class. A Oehler 83 Ballistic Imaging System target is included with each rifle to prove its capabilities.

The composite stock can be adjusteted for length of pull, drop at heel and cant of the pad. For now it is only avalible in desert camo.

The TTR package includes …

  • Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50mm Long Range/Tactical M1 scope (illuminated reticle and bullet drop compensation dials).
  • Harris Model bi-pod
  • Weatherby bore sight.

    TRR actually stands for “Threat Response Rifle”

      Peter, so it is! My mistake, its being corrected now. Thanks.

    It’s not tactical because nobody doing anything involving tactics will be buying it.

    Weatherby knows this, you can tell by the fact that they’re starting with the “I wanna pretends I’ms a snipa in eye racks!” desert camo job, and not black.

    We all know damn well that no military is going to buy this in any of those calibers and that if they were they don’t want silly “desert camo”.

    If they did plan to sell to LE it would come in black, and not be chambered in eccentric “I have a Weatherby” cartirdges. For example .338 Lapua Magnu would be offered first. However in reality tactical operations are generally carried out with .308, LE all over the world and militaries all over the world chose it for pretty much everything mid range. Longer ranges get .338 LM or .50 BMG.

    This rifle is a toy for eccentric rich men who want something fancy pants looking that they can shoot from the bench with at their local range, the only threat will be the one from their wife when they tell it how much it costs.

      hey tom i nearly pissed my pants when you said the only threat will be from the wife when she finds out how much it will cost. in my case it is so true.well said mate just cracked me up.
      cheers buddy

    No .338 Lapua? I know performance wise it’s a tossup with 338-378 but this will certainly limit any agency adoption.

    I OWN A338-378 WEATHERBY TRR WITH A ZIESS 50 POWER SCOPE IFOUND IT TO KICK FAIRLY HARD BUT THE MOA IS UNDENIABLE IT BLOWS AWAY ANY 338 CAL IVE SHOT . I ONCE SHOT A CHARGING POLAR BEAR AT 150 – 180 YARDS IT FLATTENED HIM WITH ONE SHOT , THIS GUN WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY USEFUL WHEN I WAS SNIPING GOOKS IN NAM 67 I AM IMPRESSED BIG BEE USMC RETIRED.

  • C-ratz

    Big Bee, how is that you were a ‘sniper in Nam’ when you had an MOS as a cook? You might’ve made a few ‘grenade throws’ with those damn biscuits you made and killed some sappers. lol

  • charles222

    Ohh. burn.

    Nice-looking rifle, but yeah, don’t see it getting much market penetration.

  • john doe

    dig a little deeper Tom it does come in black. why not buy american weatherby instead of french lapua

    Does anyone know where I can purchase this rifle without waiting 8 months like I was told from Weatherby. I am going grizzly hunting in Alaska in another month & was hoping to pick one up before I leave.
