    Default Just found your Forum

    I was looking around on my computer this morning looking for any information that I could find on the old Southgate Mauser rifles that Mr. Weatherby made before introducing the Mark V. I have a Southgate 270 WBY that was made in 1957 that I bought in the early part of this year. In fact, I purchased it along with a brand new 270 Wby mag in the Mark V Deluxe. Have spent all of my time working with the old Southgate rifle and have not shot the new Mark V.

    I read an old post a while ago on this forum about a gentleman who had just picked up a 300 H&H Southgate rifle back 8-10 years ago.

    Interested in seeing pictures of other old Southgate rifles made on the FN 98 Supreme 400 action. Would like to post a picture of mine but don't know how to do it.

    Welcome aboard. It looks like a keeper.

    I am curious about the gunshop that the photo was taken at. Not very often AT ALL to see 3 Nambu pistols in a shop display case below a gorgeous rifle.

    I purchased this rifle from Nagel's Gun Shop here in San Antonio, Texas. They opened their shop in 1942. Great people to do business with.
