On the heels of a number of big announcements for 2016, Weatherby has introduced the New Mark V Ultra Lightweight, a Mark V that's designed to follow you wherever the hunt may go—without weighing you down.

The New Mark V Ultra Lightweight stock has been designed with a slimmer forearm and more distinctive lines and contours. The grip diameter has been reduced, a slight right-hand palm swell has been added and overall weight has been decreased. 

"No matter what kind of shape you're in and how well you train," says Executive Vice President and COO Adam Weatherby. "When you are miles from any sort of transportation, ounces quickly become pounds. Multiply that over days or weeks and having a light and easy to carry rifle isn't just important, it's a necessity. We designed the New Mark V® Ultra Lightweight to balance well in the hand, be very lightweight, and still be guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA. This is the perfect rifle for the most avid and dedicated hunter who doesn't want to sacrifice performance for weight."

Like its Mark V brethren, he New Mark V Ultra Lightweight comes with a SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee (3-shot group measuring .99" or less at 100 yards).

Rifles should be arriving at dealers as soon as November 2015, and will ship with an MSRP of $2,300.
