The Weatherby Model 307 is a new bolt-action rifle offering, the first such offering in fifty years. The manufacturer was founded at the close of World War 2 in 1945 and headquarters out of Sheridan, Wyoming. Beyond designing, developing, and producing rifles for the hunting /sport shooting market, the company has also released a plethora of ammunition types (bearing its name) and accessories.

The current Model 307 lineup includes the Model 307 Alpine MDT and the Model 307 Range XP. Per Weatherby marketing materials, the designation "Model 307" itself comes from the 307 area code.

In both cases, the long gun is of a streamlined, lightweight design. The action features a pair of lugs in a fully-cylindrical shape. The base gun is marketed as highly compatible with after-market triggers, rails, magazines, mounts, and stocks making the rifle a truly modular solution. The bolt-action lever is set to the right side of the frame in the usual way and is manually-actuated by the shooter. The frame is indented here to better seat the bolt handle against the rifle when in the downward "resting" position.

The Model 307 "Alpine MDT" takes on a tactical appearance. The handguard is slotted along its forward sides and nearly its full length underneath. A section of Picatinny rail is seated over the action for the mounting of scopes and tactical devices. The grip handle is very pistol-like in its ergonomics with the oversized trigger loop just ahead and the shoulder stock extends aft of the frame with padded surface pieces (the cheekpiece is adjustable). The shoulder stock conveniently folds over the left side of the body for a more compact footprint. The magazine well sits ahead of the trigger unit and is accessible from both sides of the frame. The barrel features stylish external threading and is capped by a perforated muzzle brake. The overall finish is in Graphite Black Cerakote. The rifle is available in a slew of chamberings to suit customer requirements. Available barrel lengths range from 24" to 28" (with brake) and magazine capacity is 3+1.

The Model 307 "Range XP" takes on a more traditional hunting rifle form with its single-piece stock running from forend to shoulder. Against the shoulder section is padded with adjustability. The pistol grip is integrated into the flow of the stock but the oversized trigger loop remains and the magazine well is ahead of the trigger group. The magazine accommodates additional cartridges and, therefore, protrudes some from the bottom of the frame. Sling loops are present under the forend and the shoulder stock. The barrel sits within the frame with its top surface exposed and the assembly capped by a perforated brake. The rifle comes in a graphite black Cerakote and OD Green finish as well as various chamberings. Available barrel lengths range from 24" to 28" (with brake) and magazine capacity is 5+1.

The bolt / bolt knob assembly is also offered as a stand-alone purchase as the Model 307 "Builders Action" through short-action standard bold face, long-action standard bolt face, and long-action Magnum bolt face offerings.
