Our Assessment: This is a quality Weatherby rifle made right here in the U.S.A. This Mark V Deluxe rifle has a high luster blued finish with a fancy checkered walnut stock. The stock has a Monte Carlo comb, cheekpiece, rosewood grip cap and nose cap, and a soft Decelerator marked recoil pad. The 26” barrel is chambered for the .257 Weatherby Magnum cartridge and has a bright bore. The .257 Weatherby Magnum will do well for pronghorn at distance and Ed Weatherby, son of Roy, says there just isn’t a better caliber for that purpose. It will do very well at touching targets out at distance, no matter if they are game animals or steel targets, especially with the included Leupold scope. The rifle is in Excellent with about 99% of its metal finish remaining, minor wear in the stock, the bore is bright with sharp rifling and no erosion. Please see our photos and good luck!
