Experiences With Weatherby Rifles

I’m not particularly taken with push-feed bolt-actions, but the Weatherby Mark V design has always interested me - a pressure test on its rear lug action years ago produced a tolerance of 240K, making it the strongest action available at that time. One thing you’re paying for is all the CNC machining required to make the bolt and action. Does anybody have any pros and cons, outside of the prices?


How is the aftermarket support for them? Can you find the scope rings and bases in a style that you are happy with? Do you want to upgrade the stock? The trigger?

I was just asking out of real-world, general curiosity, especially due to their expanded model offerings in .280 AI. - there are at least 4 to choose from.
