Mark V® Backcountry 2.0 Carbon

(2 customer reviews)



Expanding on the ground-breaking Backcountry, the Backcountry 2.0 Carbon combines our incredibly popular tensioned carbon fiber barrel with the classic steel Weatherby® Mark V® action in a lightweight package. 

This barrel system has a reputation for accuracy and in 2021, a Mark V Carbonmark equipped with this carbon fiber barrel set the new internal Weatherby accuracy record, returning a 0.06” 3-shot group at 100 yards with factory Weatherby Select Plus ammunition. 

Starting at just 5.8 lbs, the Backcountry 2.0 Carbon owes much of its light weight to the new Peak 44 Blacktooth stock — the lightest production carbon fiber stock on the market. 

Aiding in both weight and recoil reduction is the second generation 3DHEX® recoil pad, the first production 3D printed pad the firearms world has seen. Hidden inside the pad are 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.

More pronounced spiral fluting on the bolt body not only trims a little weight, it also reduces bearing surface within the action and results in even smoother function. The newly-threaded bolt handle is equipped with a lightweight aluminum extended and skeletonized knob.

Fit with a titanium version of Weatherby’s highly-effective Accubrake® ST, this brake is blended to match the profile of the #4 carbon fiber barrel. With 30 symmetrically-spaced ports that help harness the recoil, it tames even magnum chamberings and makes them pleasant to shoot. 

With exposed carbon fiber on both the barrel and the stock, all metal on the action and barrel is sealed away behind a ceramic Cerakote® shell in Patriot Brown. The stock carries a complementary brown and green pattern to help break up the gun’s lines in the field.

Combining light weight and an exceptional barrel system, the Backcountry 2.0 Carbon is a superb addition to the new Backcountry 2.0 family.


Carbon Fiber Barrel / Trigger Guard / Receiver – Patriot Brown Cerakote

Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety – Graphite Black Cerakote

Stock – Peak 44 Blacktooth Carbon fiber with dark green and brown sponge pattern accents



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.


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.


Lightweight, accurate, and fast-cooling carbon fiber tension-wrapped barrels utilize stainless steel match barrels roll-wrapped with a carbon fiber sleeve and loaded under tension. 95% of the carbon fiber does not touch the barrel allowing air to foil around the steel and rapidly cool the barrel, adding rigidity and reduce overall weight.


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


Large caliber felt recoil dissapation 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.


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.


Allowing for customization and utility, the bolt handle of the Mark V is now threaded to accept a variety of bolt knobs.

    The Mark V Backcountry Carbon has quickly become my favorite rifle! I have this rifle chambered in 6.5RPM. I went with the Carbon version because I also have a Carbonmark in 6.5 Creed and the BSF barrels are AMAZING! The Backcountry Carbon does not disappoint. The fit and finish is perfect, as you would expect from a $3,000 rifle. The Peak 44 stock is amazingly lightweight, very rigid, and very comfortable. The rifle balances very well and while it is quite light, it is still very easy to shoot well. The Trigger Tech trigger is fantastic. I broke the gun in with Wby Select Plus ammo with the 127 LRX. Velocity was a little less than advertised initially, but accuracy is just over 1/2MOA with 400 yard groups at 2.25″ for 5 shots. Handloading 121Gr. Hammers 100 yard groups are in the .3s with 400 yard groups under 1.5″! If I were going to build my ultimate custom, it would be the Backcountry Carbon.

    Absolutely fell in love with this rifle. I have it chambered in 300 Wby Magnum and was able to harvest a Whitetail buck with it this rifle season. Between the muzzle break and recoil pad the recoil is extremely mild for caliber, barely kicks harder than my lightweight .308 MarkV. I couldn’t ask for anything more from this rifle or company. Thank you for a wonderful product yet again !
