Weatherby Vanguard History
Weatherby Inc. was founded in 1945 by Roy Weatherby, who got his start making bespoke rifles. Eventually his business expanded and Weatherby began offering mass-manufactured rifles and propriety designs. The Mark V rifle was so popular that manufacturing and finishing, previously handled at Weatherby headquarters, quickly had to be contracted out to J.P. Sauer in West Germany. By the late 1960s Weatherby was interested in designing a more affordable rifle for hunters and the Vanguard was born.
Howa of Japan built the Weatherby Vanguard, which debuted in 1970. The sporting bolt-action rifle soon became a popular alternative to models from Remington and Winchester.
