Starting at just 5.2 lbs the Weatherby Mark V Backcountry 2.0 was purpose-built to be the best lightweight mountain rifle on the market. It features Peak 44™’s Blacktooth™ carbon fiber stock which weighs only 19oz. This makes it one of the lightest production stocks on the market. Equipped with an Accubreak and 3D Hex Recoil pad, the Backcountry 2.0 series manages recoil extremely well. This is even with Weatherby’s historic magnum cartridges. This is the rifle you want 10 miles from the truck and you have to make the shot count.


Fluted Barrel / Trigger Guard / Receiver – Patriot Brown Cerakote
Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety – Graphite Black Cerakote
Stock – Peak 44 Blacktooth Carbon fiber with dark green and brown sponge pattern accents

The lightest/fastest hunting rifle on the market

The next generation of the ground-breaking Backcountry™ family, the Weatherby Mark V Backcountry 2.0 builds on the classic steel Weatherby® Mark V® action — with some key updates. Still utilising a super thin and lightweight fluted barrel, it has contours at a #1 MOD or #2 MOD depending on the chambering.

The most noticeable upgrade is the new carbon fiber Peak 44™ Blacktooth™ stock. The lightest versions of which tip the scales at under 20 ounces.

Also grabbing the eye is the second generation 3DHEX® recoil pad, the first production 3D printed pad the firearms world has seen. Hidden inside the pad are a series of interlocking voids that progressively collapse during recoil. This expands the time component of the recoil impulse and deadens the sharp kick of magnum chamberings.

More pronounced spiral fluting on the bolt body not only trims a little weight, it also reduces bearing surface within the action and results in even smoother function. The newly-threaded bolt handle is equipped with a lightweight aluminum extended and skeletonized knob.

Fit with Weatherby’s highly-effective Accubrake® ST, this brake is blended to match the profile of the muzzle. With 30 symmetrically-spaced ports that help harness the recoil, it tames even magnum chamberings and makes them pleasant to shoot.

Starting at just 5.2 lbs and 5.4 lbs in magnum chamberings, the Backcountry 2.0 also sports an updated paint scheme. The action and barrel are protected by a Cerakote® shell of Patriot Brown. The stock carries the brown and green pattern over exposed carbon fiber.

Built to be the lightest possible rifle and chambered in some of the world’s fastest cartridges. The Backcountry 2.0 is a worthy successor to the throne.

Weatherby Mark V Backcountry 2.0 Features:
  • Sub MOA Accuracy: All Mark V rifles have a guarantee to shoot a 3-shot group of .99″ or less at 100yards (SUB-MOA) from a cold barrel with premium ammunition within two years of purchase date.
  • TriggerTech Trigger: TriggerTech’s Trigger provides true creep break, extremely short over-travel, and is externally adjustable (down to 2.5lbs). Precision cut stainless steal components ensure consistent trigger pulls from shot to shot. This creates a safe, reliable, and corrosion resistant package.
  • Accubrake ST: By adding an Accubrake St you will significantly reduce felt recoil up to 53%. Available in four different barrel diameters, with thread protector, for a perfect brake-to-barrel contour.
  • 54 Degree Bolt: The shortest in the industry (as compared to a typical 90 bolt throw). Allows for faster chambering on follow-up shots and greater bolt-to-scope clearance.
  • Deep Fluted Bolt: A larger radius, deeper flute not only trims a bit more weight from the bolt body of the Mark V,  it also increases the smoothness with which the bolt can be cycled.
  • Carbon Fibre Stock: Sourced from peak 44, this stock has the distinction of being the lightest production aerospace-grade carbon fibre stock on the market. Industry leading manufacturing techniques, patented bedding technology and the addition of the 3DHEX recoil-reducing buttpad mean this is one of the most advanced lightweight stocks to date.
  • 3DHEX Recoil Reducer: Large calibre felt recoil dissipation provided in the lightest recoil reducer available. 3DHEX is a patent pending high strength energy diffusing lattice structure designed to distribute specific directional forces and reduce muzzle lift.
  • Cerakote: Cerakote is the industry leading thin-film ceramic coating. The cerakote unique formula enhances physical properties including wear, corrosion, and chemical resistance white improving impact strengths, and hardness.
