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.
Fluted 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
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
