Weatherby Mark V Threat Response Rifle (TRR)

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.
  • Talley Picatinny rings and bases
Caliber.300 Win. Mag., .300 Wby. Mag., .30-378 Wby. Mag. and .338-378 Wby. Mag.

The good news is that you have a few months to start saving!

    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.
