One-of-a-Kind Weatherby Mark V


Featured as 2017 SHOT Show Rifle


Hand-Engraved Mark V Combines Tradition and Technology










This one-of-a-kind Vanguard Mark V is the first and only Weatherby rifle ever selected as a SHOT Show Auction gun. The special Mark V was selected and hand-engraved in combined recognition of Weatherby’s 70th Anniversary, the introduction of the new Model Mark V and the introduction of the powerful new 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum cartridge.

This special Mark V combines traditional Weatherby style and performance with innovative engineering and design. The calling card of this SHOT Show rifle is serial number PM000070 in celebration of Weatherby’s 70th anniversary. The historical significance of the rifle is documented in a signed Letter of Authentication from Weatherby President Adam Weatherby.

This historic SHOT Show Weatherby features hand engraving by Heidi Roos of Baron Engraving in Trumbull, CT. Heidi is also the engraver of other highly successful SHOT Show auction guns. Commenting on the engraving style she selected for this Mark V, Heidi said, “Inspired by the manufacturer’s design, to accentuate the fluted-barrel profile, I created a modern look by bringing together hand engraving and Cerakote finishing for a thoroughly 21st century style. The style continues on the trigger guard and floorplate with a hand-engraved Weatherby logo in silver, singling out this elegant firearm for the 70th Anniversary.”

This new Vanguard Mark V features the first significant refinements to this classic rifle since its introduction in 1958, maximizing the rifle’s fit, feel and performance. The rifle features reduced overall weight, new LXX trigger and hand-lapped barrel for consistent accuracy. All Mark Vs are guaranteed to shoot sub-MOA. This rifle printed a three-shot test group of 0.66-inches and a mean radius of .25.

This Mark V is mounted with a Leupold Vari-X III 4.5 x 14, a superb and highly appropriate scope for the long-range capabilities of this Weatherby.

The new Weatherby 6.5-300 Magnum is the fastest production 6.5mm there is, delivering velocities in excess of 3,500 FPS with factory ammo.
