The model is vanguard. It is the same rifle as a Howa 1500.

Is no kind of a rare collectible if that's what your wondering. Its a fairly new model (in Weatherby's house any way, don't know how long Howa's been building it)

They're fine guns, good quality, probably last you a lifetime, I'm sure your grandkids will love it one day.

The stock was replaced w/ a boyds thumbhole. Howa has made the Vanguard for 40 years. VG rifle! Hard to determine manufacture date w/ VS prefix.

How long has Weatherby had it? I've been thinking its only been about 6-7 years.
