    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.

    That's probably a dealers exclusive then. That what my ruger 7mm08 was when I got it.
