Hello guys. Just want to start by saying It's been along time since I've posted on here. I hope to find time to start coming around a little more. Hope everyone has been well!!!

Now on to the business, I was in Sportsmans Warehouse the other day and ran across this rifle. Looked realy nice. The counter guys couldnt tell me a thing about it. They said it looks to be a regular vanguard with cerecoated barrel and action. It looks a little better to me, according to their website. 26 inch barrel with accubrake at least. Only chambered in 257 WBY, 6.5 Creedmoor, and 300 win mag. What do you all think about this one in 6.5 Creedmoor? And do you think the 26" is just 24" with 2" brake? Thanks all for your input.

More than likely it's a 24 incher with a brake.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I like the idea of the 6.5, and I also think it's a 24" with a muzzle break.  Good looking rifle!

I agree. It is a great looking rifle. I'm looking for something to get my step daughter shooting. She's on a 22 lr now but I think she's ready to start shooting bigger rifles this year. This seems like a perfect setup with a mild cartridge plus a brake. Love the ceracoat as well.

Would that be a removable brake?

I didn't even think to look while I was there but I did call back and asked that question and they said it was threaded on and removable.
