Weatherby® Introduces Mark V Accumark RC (Range Certified) Rifle

 

Weatherby® features “Range Certified” accuracy assurance in its Mark V® rifle line with the new Accumark® RC, which comes with a SUB-MOA guarantee as well as a factory-shot target signed by company President Ed Weatherby.

Mark V Accumark RC rifles are tested at Weatherby’s modern indoor range. Range technicians mount premium optics, boresight and test fire each rifle to determine the most accurate load using the Oehler Research 83 Ballistic Imaging System. After testing, the rifle is cleaned and packed with the target signed by Ed Weatherby. Each rifle sports a special RC engraved floorplate.

“Our Range Certified program now includes the Mark V Accumark, one of our most popular rifles among hunters and shooters,” Ed Weatherby commented. “The Mark V Accumark RC is certainly one of the most accurate production rifles available today.”

The Mark V Accumark RC offers multiple accuracy-enhancing features, including a hand-laminated raised comb Monte Carlo composite stock with matte gel coat finish and spiderweb accents. It also features a button-rifled #3 contour stainless steel fluted barrel. The barrel, which comes in 24-, 26- and 28-inch lengths depending on caliber, is free floated and topped with a recessed target crown. A Pachmayr® Decelerator® pad on the buttstock helps reduce felt recoil.

A CNC-machined 6061 T-6 aluminum bedding plate provides a solid, stable platform for the barreled action. The trigger is factory tuned and fully adjustable.

The Mark V Accumark RC is available in 14 calibers: .240 Wby. Mag., .270 Win., .308 Win., .30-06 Springfield, .257 Wby. Mag., .270 Wby. Mag., 7mm Rem. Mag., 7mm Wby. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., .300 Wby.

Leica Sport Optics Introduces the ER i Riflescope

 

Leica Sport Optics adds to its already successful line of ER riflescopes with the introduction of two new illuminated riflescope models: the ER i 2.5-10×42 and the ER i 3-12×50. These new riflescopes boast a lean and classic design making them simple and easy-to-use. They also feature Leica’s legendary optical performance and the addition of an illuminated red dot, available in three reticle configurations: 4a, Ballistic and IBS.

ER i 3-12×50
Understanding the nature of the hunt, Leica Sport Optics designed the ER i riflescope to perform reliably, regardless of weather or terrain. The ER i features a large and ergonomically-designed setting dial on the left side of the riflescope, so even a gloved hunter can easily activate and adjust the illuminated dot on the reticle. Nine brightness settings, as well as clearly defined “On/Off” positions, guarantee a clear and distinct view, even during low-light hours when game animals are most active.

Backcountry hunters need not worry about the scope’s battery life. Leica’s sophisticated, energy-saving system ensures maximum battery conservation. On the brightest setting, the battery lifetime in continuous mode is more than 40 hours and more than 210 hours on the intermediate setting. Plus, with Leica’s intelligent “Auto On/Off” function, the illumination will turn off when not in a regular shooting position or when left on unintentionally, providing even longer battery life.

ER i 2.5-10×42
With the new Leica ER i riflescope, hunters get the quality they expect from a a premium Leica product. Among its impressive optical qualities, the scope boasts extraordinary contrast, low vignetting, generous field of view and extraordinary light transmission. Like other scopes in the ER line, the ER i provides 4 inches of eye relief, which gives an extra dose of safety when shooting lightweight, big-bore rifles. The scope’s design enables reliable observation and ethical shooting until the last available light.

The ER i riflescope line embodies all the advantages of the proven ER mechanical design: substantial dimensioned tube wall thickness, the tightest production tolerances and Finite Elements Method (FEM) optimized geometric shapes, leading to a superbly reliable product. The generous mounting area and lean, classical lines guarantee perfect mounting and a stylish look for this true performer.

The ER i comes available with three illuminated reticles.

Reticle 4a: Classical hunting reticle
Reticle Ballistic: Ballistic reticle with stadia lines for long-range shots
Reticle IBS: MOA based ballistic reticle with stadia lines and hash marks
Also, a new, patented bullet drop compensator (BDC) turret is now available for ER i scopes. When equipped with the BDC, the ER i gains a whole new level of long-range capability.

Leica is now offering two different mounting systems: the “tried and proven” rail mounting system popular with European firearms, and the traditional “ring and base” system.

Prices for the ER i riflescopes range from $1,599 to $2,349 depending on model, reticle, and mounting system.
