New from Weatherby: Mark V Carbonmark rifles

Three new Mark V Carbonmark rifle Models from Weatherby. As stated by the manufacturer, “the newly introduced Weatherby Mark V product line launches many all-new models with features and technologies at aggressive pricing levels.” 

The Weatherby Mark V Carbonmark rifle
The Weatherby Mark V Carbonmark rifle features a hand-laid Monte Carlo fiberglass black stock with gray and tan sponge accents, and FDE receiver/brake/trigger guard.

The new rifles are the Weatherby Mark V Carbonmark , the Carbonmark Pro , and the Carbonmark Elite . All three models are guaranteed as sub-MOA platforms and share some interesting features, including the new TriggerTech Mark V trigger, a Cerakote coating on all metalwork, a new spiral fluted bolt, Accubrake ST with standard 5/8×24 threads on all calibers and Monte Carlo fiberglass stock or carbon fiber stock (on select models). TriggerTech’s trigger, in particular provides true zero-creep break, extremely short over-travel, and is externally adjustable, ensuring consistent trigger pulls, while the Accubrake ST should reduce felt recoil up to 53%.

The Carbonmark Pro from Weatherby
The Carbonmark Pro: note the charcoal carbon fiber stock, tungsten on receiver/brake/trigger guard, graphite black bolt and safety.

According to Weatherby, the 54 degree bolt is the shortest in the industry – as compared to typical 90 bolt throw – and allows for faster chambering on follow-up shots and greater bolt-to-scope clearance.

The most striking feature of the new Weatherby Mark V Carbonmark rifles, anyway, is the BSF Carbon Barrel: thanks to a 416R stainless steel match barrel roll-wrapped with a carbon fiber sleeve loaded under tension to create strength and reduce overall weight, it's lightweight, accurate, and fast-cooling. 95% of the carbon fiber does not touch the barrel allowing air to foil around the steel and rapidly cool the barrel, adding rigidity and reducing overall weight. 

Calibers available are: .257 Wby. Mag., .300 Wby. Mag., 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 WBY RPM, 6.5-300 Wby. Mag.

Mark V Carbonmark rifles: accuracy and light weight

In detail, the Mark V Carbonmark sports a hand-laid Monte Carlo fiberglass black stock with gray and tan sponge accents, an FDE receiver/brake/trigger guard with a graphite black spiral fluted bolt and safety lever. Suggested price is 2499 USD.

The Carbonmark Pro features a charcoal carbon fiber stock, tungsten on receiver/brake/trigger guard, graphite black bolt and safety and dual Swivel Stud Attachments. MSRP is 2999 USD.

Carbonmark Elite model from Weatherby
The adjustable comb carbon fiber stock with a brown sponge pattern, coupled with Coyote Tan Elite on receiver/brake/trigger guard, distinguishes the Carbonmark Elite model.

Last but not least, the Carbonmark Elite features an adjustable comb carbon fiber stock with a brown sponge pattern, coupled with Coyote Tan Elite on receiver/brake/trigger guard with a graphite black spiral bolt and safety lever. MSRP for the Elite version is 3299 USD. Depending on the model, weight ranges from a minimum of 6.7 lb with standard action up to a maximum of 8.4 lb with Magnum action (3-3.8 kg). In all the models, the barrel is 5/8×24 threaded to accept a muzzle brake or suppressor.

To conclude with the words of Kevin Wilkerson, Director of Marketing, Weatherby is “incredibly excited to launch these three models of Mark V Carbonmarks in partnership with BSF Barrels. New technologies and high performance lift the entire Mark V family. The new carbon fiber stocks of the Pro and Elite offer many shooting options from hunting to bench shooting all while saving weight.”
