Rifles and shotguns in the new Weatherby X (WBY-X) line feature edgy, unconventional camouflage and color patterns designed for hunters and shooters, male and female, of all ages who want to make a unique statement about who they are and what they do afield. SHOT Show attendees are invited to see all the WBY-X products in the Weatherby booth (#12729).
“WBY-X is more than a product line,” said Ed Weatherby, company president and CEO. “It is an attitude, a lifestyle, a distinction that sets you apart from the crowd. The fresh look of these rifles and shotguns goes way beyond what you’d expect in a 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. WBY-X shotguns are built on the PA-08 and PA-459 (pump actions,) and SA-08 (semi-auto) platforms.
The WBY-X rifles include models for deer, varmint and hog hunters, as well as for threat response. Specific models are:
- Whitetail Bonz with Next Bonz camo pattern and 24-inch barrel. A Youth version that comes with a spacer to adjust length of pull and a 20-inch barrel is also available.
- Kryptek TR with Kryptek Highlander camo pattern and 22-inch heavy barrel.
- Black Reaper with Proveil Reaper Black pattern and 24-inch barrel. Also available in a TR (Threat Response) version with 22-inch heavy barrel.
