Weatherby 330 Mag LH

     We seldom see a German 300 Weatherby in this high level of condition. We understand that Weatherby subcontracted Mark V production to J.P. Sauer from approx 1959-1973, and that left handed actions were offered in 270 and 300 Mag calibers. Serial number 292XX indicates this example was made in Germany in 1961. This Deluxe Mark V left-handed rifle is a refreshing sight, compete with the proper vintage German Weatherby 2-7X variable scope on Buehler mounts. The scope optics are crystal clear, have the classic fine cross hair reticle and the adjustments still move.
     The high gloss blue metal finish is in near perfect condition, with some high edge thinning at the muzzle and some small thin spots on the bolt knob. The rest of the barreled action, bottom metal and even the sling swivel studs have flawless, shiny finish. This is what they mean when they say "Its polished like a Weatherby!" The 24" barrel has beautiful, crisp, sharp, shiny rifling from front to back, with clean chamber, throat and intact, shiny blueing on the crown; this, along with the crisp, nice bolt face, suggest that this rifle has not been fired very much at all.
     The stock is classic Weatherby Deluxe pattern, with full left-handed cheekpiece, rosewood fore end tip and grip cap, white grip cap inlay and skip-line checkering. There are minimal scattered handling marks in the finish. Close-ups in the photos will show some pressure marks in the sharp edge of the cheekpiece, a pressure mark in the grip cap and one in the lower right portion of the grip checkering. Pull is 13-1/2" over the still-pliable, Southgate-marked Weatherby pad. These were Pachmayr white line pads made specially for Weatherby. Even the pad is still crisp and detailed, with no cracking or deformation.
     There are many cheaper, more beat-up Weatherbys on the market, but if you want a vintage rifle in super shape, this is the one to pursue.
