I originally had 3 Weatherbys, but now only one remains. This is a German Weatherby MKV Deluxe 270Weatherby mag. It's vintage 1960's and pristine mint as new without ever having a round in it's chamber. I'd be confident to say that there are very few unfired versions of 60's MKV's out there.
The other 2 Weatherby's I had were a South Gate 30-06 with a '98 Mauser action and a German MKV in 300Weatherby mag. They were both exc rifles and were shot many times through the years with precision accuracy. I decided years ago not to fire that 270 and just keep it as an investment because that caliber wasn't as common as the 300. I have shot another 270 Weatherby and liked it better than the 300, which I loved.
This Weatherby was mfg by JP Sauer with their gorgeous bluing and beautifully figured wood. The scope is also a German Weatherby Imperial and is 2 3/4x by 10x that was mfg for Weatherby by Hertel & Reuss. I love the skip line checkering though today it isn't as popular. I also like the looks of the plum colored receiver. I can't see a rifle collection being complete without at least on Weatherby, but that's only my opinion. I see quality when looking at any Weatherby.
WOW! beautiful rifle! one of the nicest Weatherbys i have ever seen and being in mint unfired condition, could be worth a tidy sum.
thanks for sharing that rifle here with us.
It's my pleasure to show it. I always loved shooting Weatherby's and they're one heck of an accurate rifle, whether German or Japanese. What's the point of sticking it in a safe where it doesn't see the light of day? It's nice having others appreciate it. I've been lazy about posting things lately due to all the snow we've been having. I think I'm nuts!!!
