Weatherby, Inc. is celebrating its 70th anniversary with a limited-edition Mark V custom package that should catch the eye of hunters and firearm collectors throughout the industry. Each special package will ship with a limited-edition Mark V rifle, a custom-designed leather rifle case and a commemorative knife handcrafted by Dan Weatherby. Only 70 packages will be produced.

"This 70th Anniversary rifle is as special as it is rare," said Adam Weatherby, executive vice president/chief operating officer. "It is meant to honor Weatherby's unique past while inspiring the dreams of hunters and shooters around the world."

The Mark V 70th Anniversary rifle is offered in company founder Roy Weatherby's favorite caliber, .257 Weatherby Magnum. Rifle highlights include an exhibition-grade California claro walnut stock with a high-gloss finish and Pachmayr waffle-style recoil pad. The stock features skipline checkering and double forend tip and grip cap spacers, which are designed to emulate those of custom Weatherby rifles from the 1960s. The custom steel bottom metal features Weatherby's 70th Anniversary logo etched in gold. Barrel length is 24 inches (#1 contour).

The commemorative knife also sports the 70th Anniversary logo in gold. The handle of the knife is made of reclaimed Mark V stocks in exhibition grade walnut, maplewood or rosewood.

The custom leather rifle case completes the package, which is priced at $5,300. To reserve a Mark V 70th Anniversary rifle, contact a local Weatherby dealer.
