Weatherby Mark V Deluxe Bolt Action
A bargain does not only mean getting a good rifle cheap. It can also mean getting a fine used rifle for half what you'd pay for a new one. Let us now dwell upon the Weatherby Mark V, which was produced by J.P. Sauer & Sohn from 1958 to 1971, then made in Japan from 1972 until 1995, and ultimately in the United States. Not infrequently, you will find a used Weatherby--mostly in .300 Weatherby Magnum--that looks unfired. This is because its owner bought it, shot it, found that it kicked, and sold it. This past winter, I bought just such a rifle, complete with Leupold scope, for half the list price of a new Mark V. It's in mint condition.
