I'll second that. My son has a .300 Weatherby Vanguard. The action is smooth and precise - very accurate rifle.

Re: Opinons please

The Vanguard action is a Howa built action and I have the S&W M1500 version which I purchased about 29 years ago. As far as I can tell, there are no signifcant differences in the present Vanguard.

They are probably one of the best non-custom actions available and have a lot of after market parts such as stocks and ring bases, etc., available.

Re: Opinons please

The only difficulties I've encountered, is getting the original , small parts one my need, like extractors/springs/some screws. The place in Tulsa isn't nearly as abliging as they used to be! There are many other places, listed on Weatherbys' web site as "Authorized Service Providers". I just may not have found the right one, yet! as there are quit a few listed.
