My first Weatherby



Log in to see fewer ads
Brought this beauty home from the LGS two days ago

N-mark (Japenese made) Weatherby Mark XXII with low serial number in that N range-- I'm guessing 1973-74 manufacture

Ordered an extra (after-market) mag from ammoclip.com. I see they also sell them at triple-k. The 5-rounder that came with this gun is in poor condition, but the rifle is in great condition.

Wow- a superb trigger! 2.5 lbs is my guess.

This gun is a great shooter- had it at the range twice already and will take it out again today.

Very nice rifle! I've always had a fondness for those Weatherby's.

Great find - the gun looks to be in great condition, especially considering its age. My guess is that spent a lot of years sitting somewhere.

i did switch to some CCI standard velocity which it liked

Also measured the trigger pull... 1.5lbs


I suppose I have to start putting some of that match grade Eley stuff through it...

Very nice looking rifle! Always nice when you run into something like that sitting on the used gun rack.
