(GunReports.com) — Weatherby has expanded its popular WBY-X line with new rifle and shotgun models. The new models feature unconventional camouflage patterns such as Kryptek Typhon, Kryptek Highlander, Proveil Reaper Black and Boneyard Camo Legends Blaze. A new semi-auto shotgun model, the SA-08 GH2 (Girls Hunt 2), is designed for women and young shooters.
Said Mike Schwiebert, director of marketing for Weatherby, Inc. “While the look of WBY-X rifles and shotguns is anything but traditional, they actually continue Weatherby’s long tradition of innovation and distinctive looks. In addition, they offer all the hard-hitting, flat-shooting, dead-on performance you expect from Weatherby.”
WBY-X rifles are built on the Vanguard Series 2 platform, which is guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less) with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. These rifles offer a lightweight, composite Monte Carlo stock, match-quality two-stage trigger, and three-position safety.
WBY-X shotguns are built on the PA-08 and PA-459 (pump action) and SA-08 and SA-459 (semi-auto) platforms.
