This rifle provides the craftsmanship and quality expected from a Mark V® rifle only surpassed by the stunning color combination and true rugged dependability that embodies its name, Backcountry. Developed in conjunction with the Backcountry Ti, this model carries many of the same innovative technologies including a carbon fiber stock, 3D HEX recoil reducer, TriggerTech Trigger, and Accubrake ST. Implementing the new 6.5 WBY RPM, the Backcountry weighs in at a mere 5.3 pounds built on a 6-Lug receiver. Carry the Mark V® Backcountry on your next adventure, and guarantee confidence in performance and dependability.
Fluted Barrel / Trigger Guard / Receiver – McMillan Tan Cerakote
Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety – Graphite Black Cerakote
Stock – Visible Carbon fiber with green and tan 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.
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
AG Composites’ proprietary manufacturing process provides excellent stiffness and lightweight attributes from carefully selected materials. The stocks are also impervious to environmental factors and will offer predictable, reliable performance.
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.
