Weatherby announced a new gun designed for tactical shooters. Called the Modular Chassis Rifle, the gun is part of the Vanguard line and comes with an accuracy guarantee of a three-shot group of less than 1″ at 100 yards.

The rifle has a 22″ bull barrel that is free floated. The chassis is made of CNC machined 6061 aluminum. The forend has hole spacing for the shooter to attach Magoul MOE rails if desired.

At the rear, Weatherby uses a Luth-AR Modular Buttstock Assembly. The pistol grip is provided by Hogue. Weatherby uses a two-stage trigger, and the trigger guard is oversized for use with gloves.

The suggested retail price for the Modular Chassis rifle is $1,449. The company is promising rifles will be at dealers by November 16.

    Only 1" at 100 yards? I've got a '74 vintage model 70 that does half that when I do my part. More tacticool junk.
