Starting at just 5.2 lbs the Mark V® Backcountry™ 2.0 was purpose-built to be the best lightweight mountain rifle on the market. It features Peak 44™’s Blacktooth™ carbon fiber stock which weighs only 19oz making it one of the lightest production stocks on the market. Equipped with an Accubreak and 3D Hex Recoil pad, the Backcountry 2.0 series manages recoil extremely well even with Weatherby’s historic magnum cartridges. This is the rifle you want 10 miles from the truck and you have to make the shot count.

Description

SPECIFICATIONS

The lightest/fastest hunting rifle on the market

The next generation of the ground-breaking Backcountry™ family, the Backcountry 2.0 builds on the classic steel Weatherby® Mark V® action — with some key updates. Still equipped with a super thin and lightweight fluted barrel, it is contoured at a #1 MOD or #2 MOD depending on the chambering.

The most noticeable upgrade is the new carbon fiber Peak 44™ Blacktooth™ stock, the lightest versions of which tip the scales at under 20 ounces.

Also grabbing the eye 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 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 and makes them pleasant to shoot.

Starting at just 5.2 lbs and 5.4 lbs in magnum chamberings, the Backcountry 2.0 also sports an updated paint scheme, with action and barrel protected by a Cerakote® shell of Patriot Brown, with the stock carrying a brown and green pattern over exposed carbon fiber.

Built to be the lightest possible rifle and chambered in some of the world’s fastest cartridges, the Backcountry 2.0 is a worthy successor to the throne.

Mark V® Backcountry 2.0 Videos

5 reviews for Mark V® Backcountry 2.0

  1. Jon

    I bought a Backcountry 2.0 in .280 Ackley Improved for an upcoming elk hunt with my son. It will be the first elk hunt for both of us. I called the factory and asked a ton of questions. The representative was super helpful.
    The gun itself has great out of the box accuracy. The 3D Hex recoil pad makes a significant difference and makes it a pleasure to shoot even in such a lightweight package. Always wanted to own a Weatherby and this gun lived up to my expectations.

  2. Steven Roberts

    Love my 300 light weight manageable recoil and plenty of power for the kenai peninsula in Alaska where I live after 30 days in the field this season there is a little rust but this season was really cold and wet rain mixed with a little snow only a couple nice days this year

  3. Craig

    Love my 6.5 rpm easily shoots moa with retumbo and eldx, hammer or Barnes bullets.

  4. Craig

    The rifle is really great. With retumbo powder both 143 eldx and 127 Barnes long range are easily capable of half inch groups at 100 yards. Wonderful to carry in the field. Love my rpm.

  5. Pistol Pete

    Awesome rifle! Balances great with a Swarovski Z6 3-18×50, solid combo. Use in box blind, high rack and spot & stalk.
