You'll enjoy the rifle. Some of The earlier italian jobs were definitely less fancy wood wise and didn't have the rosewood features and cushioned butt pad. The later models were all dolled up to mimic the Mark V larger caliber rifles as a selling point IIRC. As long as somebody wasn't using it as a shovel you're gonna be very surprised how well it can shoot. Weatherby spent the money to spec out cold hammer forged barrels. My Nikko built 1973 (scoped) shoots dime sized daisy holes at 40 to 50 yds all day with decent 22LR. (shoots surprisingly well with junk ammo too actually). I love mine, its a real bunny blaster around the back yard. Take'r out and sling some lead......

Mine is similar to yours, pictures would not do it justice. I like the color of the wood grain on mine.

Where was the JT serial number range of the Weatherby Mark XXII tube-fed rifles manufactured? Thanks.
