The Vanguard Badlands is the first production rifle to appear in the popular Badlands Approach® camo. The Approach pattern uses adaptive coloration to construct a neutral color palette that adapts to your surrounds and lighting conditions. It also contains multi-layers visual confusion to ensure that the eye cannot detect where one shape ends and another begins. Vanguard #2 contour barreled action in combination with the Approach® pattern gives an ultimate advantage to the hunter during his time afield.
