I am thinking about buying my girlfriend the weatherby vanguard compact with the adjustable LOP.
Anybody have any experience with one?

No experience with the compact adjustable stock.

Have you considered / handled the Weatherby Camilla.

Just looked at one and I like it! You may have just picked Mrs. B's Christmas present.

My Mrs. B loves hers and killed a nice buck with it this year. 7mm-08. It is a nice little rifle for the money.

I'm thinking the same caliber, she loves the 7mm08 she has. That Camilla would great on her.

Savage lady hunter does look nice... Do you think it would be better than a weatherby?

Better in what way?

I wouldn't buy a rifle for someone without them handling it to see how I fits them & how they like it.


I'm not a savage fan but believe the major manufacturers all make rifles capable of similar accuracy.

My sister is 5'2" and under 100lb and she shot my adult stock'd Weatherby Vanguard. The gun did start off as a youth model with the shorter LOP (and 20" barrel) but even with the longer LOP she was fine. Just something to consider.

As for the newer adjustable LOP, I have no experience. But the Vanguard rifles are great buys.
