Weatherby® has expanded its popular WBY-X™ line with new rifle and shotgun models for hunters and shooters who want to make a statement about who they are and what they carry afield.
The new models feature edgy, unconventional camouflage patterns such as Kryptek™ Typhon™, Kryptek Highlander™, Proveil™ Reaper™ Black and Boneyard Camo Legends Blaze™. A new semi-auto shotgun model, the SA-08 GH2 (Girls Hunt 2), is designed for women and young shooters, as well as those who want the benefit of a more compact firearm.
“WBY-X seems to have struck a resounding chord with those who want to express their individuality as hunters and shooters, so we are expanding the line,” said Mike Schwiebert, director of marketing for Weatherby, Inc. “While the look of WBY-X rifles and shotguns is anything but traditional, they actually continue Weatherby’s long tradition of innovation and distinctive looks. In addition, they offer all the hard-hitting, flat-shooting, dead-on performance you expect from Weatherby.”
WBY-X rifles are built on the popular Vanguard® Series 2 platform, which is guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less) with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. These rifles offer a lightweight, composite Monte Carlo stock; match quality, two-stage trigger; and three-position safety. WBY-X shotguns are built on the PA-08™ and PA-459™ (pump action) and SA-08™ and SA-459™ (semi-auto) platforms.
