    Default Weatherby rifle, serial number 9478

    Hey guys,

    Can someone tell me how much a Weatherby rifle with a serial number this low would be realistically be worth?

    It was built on an FN Mauser action, calibre 300 Weatherby Magnum, circa 1960.

    A guy has had it on an auction site here in New Zealand, and set the reserve at $10,000 NZ.

    Were rifles built then suitable for shooting 200gr or was the twist two slow?


    Regards,

    Michael.

    I think your rifle is older than 1960. I have an early Mark V from 1961 and it is 240xxx. Mine is the traditional Mark V action except it has Roy's original safety and not the safety on the bolt. I think yours may be from the late 1940's or early 1950's but I am just guessing. Some of the other guys and gals may be more "on the mark". Sorry about the pun but it was so right there.
