When taking the Vanguard Synthetic hunting, don’t think this one has to be babied because of the precision. The Vanguard Synthetic, with a Griptonite® stock and all surfaces, is designed to repel the harshest conditions.
Barrel/Receiver/Bolt/Bolt Knob/Safety – Bead blasted matte finish
Stock – Green Monte Carlo Griptonite® stock
I was lucky enough to find one in .375H&H magnum with sights during the very brief period they were made. Great rifle and catridge combo but as Jason said finding one anywhere in a standard caliber seems to be next to impossible. It shouldn’t be.
just order one in 308 .also have a 300 weatherby mag in first light my go to rifle for elk & deer.
Pistol Pete –
Great rifle for the money, set this one up as a backup rifle. Shoots the silver box 100gr. sub MOA. Looking forward to rifle season this year to break it in.

I’ve own the green vanguard for about five years and I shoot Hornady reloaded ammunition in 22-250 and it Performs very well, can cover 4 shots with a dime at 100 yds.
These rifles are great both in performance and value. Too bad they just aren’t available. You can get the more expensive Vanguards but the bread and butter Vanguard seems nowhere to be found. I would love to have one in 30-06 but they haven’t been listed as available in months. Don’t need or want a cerakote rifle. Just an accurate, reliable basic rifle.
