Welcome to the top of the food chain, the Mark V® APEX is where long-range accuracy meets lightweight hunting. The APEX is built on the iconic Weatherby® Mark V® steel action and comes with a fluted two-toned cerakoted barrel. Equipped with Peak 44™’s new vertical grip carbon fiber stock, marksmanship just got a whole lot lighter and much more comfortable.
The Peak 44™ Bastion stock is among the lightest production vertical grip carbon fiber stocks on the market weighing in at just 23 ounces. It features a comfortable ambidextrous palm swell and a substantial thumb groove to promote proper form while shooting. The forend features dual swivel studs to allow the shooter multiple options when deciding on accessories. This upgraded stock allows shooters to comfortably and accurately shoot from all positions, not only at the range but in the harshest of conditions while in the field.
Also grabbing the eye is the 3DHEX® recoil pad, the first production 3D printed pad the firearms world has seen. Hidden inside the pad is a series of interlocking voids that progressively collapse during recoil, expanding the time component of the recoil impulse and deadening the sharp kick of magnum chamberings. This means less felt recoil resulting in better accuracy downrange.
Spiral fluting on the bolt body not only trims weight but also reduces the bearing surface within the action and results in smoother bolt function.
Fit with Weatherby’s highly-effective Accubrake® ST, this brake is blended to match the profile of the muzzle. With 30 symmetrically-spaced ports that help harness the recoil, it tames even magnum chamberings.
Fluted Barrel – Two-tone Coyote Tan Cerakote and Graphite Black
Trigger Guard / Receiver – Coyote Tan Cerakote
Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety – Graphite Black Cerakote
Stock – Exposed Carbon fiber with tan/brown sponge pattern accents
GUARANTEED SUB-MOA ACCURACY
All Mark V® rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99” or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby® factory or premium ammunition within Two-Years of Verified Purchase Date to Original Purchaser.
TriggerTech’s trigger provides true zero-creep break, extremely short over-travel, and is externally adjustable. Precision cut stainless steel components ensure consistent trigger pulls from shot to shot in a safe, reliable, and corrosion resistant package.
By adding an Accubrake ST you will signiﬁcantly reduce felt recoil up to 53%. Available in four different barrel diameters, with thread protector, for a perfect brake-to-barrel contour.
54 DEGREE BOLT
The shortest in the industry (as compared to typical 90 bolt throw). Allows for faster chambering on follow-up shots and greater bolt-to-scope clearance.
DEEP FLUTED BOLT
A larger radius, deeper flute not only trims a bit more weight from the bolt body of the Mark V, it also increases the smoothness with which the bolt can be cycled.
CARBON FIBER STOCK
Sourced from Peak 44, this stock has the distinction of being the lightest production aerospace-grade carbon fiber stock on the market. Industry-leading manufacturing techniques, patented bedding technology and the addition of the 3DHEX recoil-reducing buttpad mean this is one of the most advanced lightweight stocks to date.
3DHEX RECOIL REDUCER
Large caliber felt recoil dissipation provided in the lightest recoil reducer available. 3DHEX is a patent pending high strength energy diffusing lattice structure designed to distribute speciﬁc directional forces and reduce muzzle lift.
Cerakote is the industry leading thin-ﬁlm ceramic coating. The Cerakote unique formula enhances physical properties including wear, corrosion, and chemical resistance while improving impact strengths, and hardness.
REMOVABLE BOLT KNOB
Allowing for customization and utility, the bolt handle of the Mark V is now threaded to accept a variety of bolt knobs
