The Weatherby brand is known for its high quality, high velocity rifles. The Mark V is at the top of that list. Mostly because the designer, Roy Weatherby, made sure to develop these rifles as gifts to those among the upper echelon with the standard of quality to match. This bolt-action rifle is touted as one of the strongest in the world, with astounding test results as hard proof. It uses an improved Mauser style action with a pistol style grip and has several barrel sizes and lengths to meet the custom demand for each owner. The design is straightforward, consistent, and top-notch. While they answer the call of performance, collectors often contribute to the firepower with highly decorated stocks, barrels, and sights. In many ways, the Mark V is as much a work of art as it is a lethal weapon.
