Well, I'll try to keep this updated to see what Weatherby comes up with. I stripped down the bolt, couldn't find anything obvious or sticking. I took it to a local gunsmith to ship it out to Weatherby for warranty work. I had him briefly look over it just to make sure there wasn't anything...
Mine are the same way. I'm a 32" waist but wear the mediums. The feel real tight right when you put them on but it's because they're so puffy. Once they compress a little then they feel right. I wore my mediums over my Timberlines and 2 merino base layers and they felt fine.
That is what I'm saying, I pulled it apart and couldn't find anything. I'm not a gunsmith, I'm not going to dissect my trigger assembly down to the pins and springs. I'll let Weatherby do it and if I'm out $50 to ship a rifle to them only to have them tell me it's good to go, that's peace of mind.
I'm sure there's a possibility of a new rifle doing that. But when I hit the field, I carry equipment that has been tested and as a result, I have a lot of confidence in my setup. When something like this happens out of the blue for no apparent reason, it takes that confidence away rather quickly.
I took my gun apart last night. Everything functioned as it should. I couldn't find anything out of the ordinary, and I didn't find any screw that were loose. I contacted Weatherby and I'll be sending it in for warranty repairs. We'll see if they can come up with anything.
Yeah on top of this, I just had a birthday. My amazing wife told me to buy a new rifle for my birthday since she knew I was itching for a new one. This all happened the day before my Vanguard left me down. Unfortunate timing
