Default I bought the Weatherby Mark xxll (range report update)

I just couldnt stand it any longer! I came on here last week talking about a beautiful Italian Weatherby mark 22. I went to look at it next day and unfortunately it did not have a weatherby scope which are desirable. It does have a Weaver V22a scope. They seem to be pretty well reviewed and run about $150 today. Price on consignment was $675. So today it was still there and just threw out an offer of $550. He called the lady and much to my surprise she said yes cause it hadnt been there long. Just got done cleaner it up. Sorry just cell phone pics but will give you an idea of her beauty!

Very nice, love that wood. The scope looks great on that gun. Now we need a range report, enjoy your new toy. Larry

Yes, Thank you. Such a beautiful gun just could not be left by me to sit on the shelf. Plan on going to test out the new toy either later today or tomorrow. Dog gone hurricane Irma getting in the way of my play time for sure. I'm such a sucker for any gun in gloss, especially that nice wood grain character in mine. I just had to buy a Weatherby Vanguard deluxe in .243 Winchester caliber when I seen one brand new at Walmart for under $650. Just drives me crazy the gloss and maple caps and pistol grips and even the diamond inlay just screams out to me.

22 Ammo is like most anything else, You get what you pay for. Bargain 22 ammo will probably be fine for tin cans and small game, but to see what most quality 22 rifles can do I use one of the medium grades of target ammo. My favorites are "Club" & "Team" by Ely, these should cost in the $8-$10 a box range. I have a Later Weatherby Mark XXII on the Anschutz 64 bolt action that will do 1/4" 5 shot groups at 100 with this ammo and a 4.5-14 scope using Club Extra (now Team) ammo. Ivan

Nice rifle and good price.

From the type of the rear sight on the rifle it looks to be a later Mossberg(USA) or Howa (Japan) manufactured rifle though, not one made by Beretta (Italy).

Date-Manufacturer-Serial Number

1964-1971 Beretta-Italy Clip 01000-43352

1967-1971 KTG-Japan Clip J25000-J42290

1972-1980 Nikko-Japan Clip N45000-N63056

1973-1980 Nikko-Japan Tubular T00003-T22506

1981-1982 Mossberg-USA Clip AC01000-AC01670

1981-1982 Mossberg-USA Tubular AT01000-AT01640

1984-1988 Howa-Japan Clip JC10000-JC13250

1984-1988 Howa-Japan Tubular JT50000-JT54874

Finally got her out to range today. When I was showing it off to the guys the owner of range said "made in Japan". I say "no made in Italy" to my dismay we both look and it says made in Japan right there on it. I could of swore that said Italy but guess I'm wrong. Sure enough the one poster was correct serial# puts it right in the late 70's in the Japan grouping. I was shocked after all the cleaning and fondling I've done in past week to miss that. Anyhow the scope was dead on for elevation but was shooting about a foot to the right all the way back in the indoor range about 25-30 yards. I was prepared for that with all the screwdrivers needed. In no time at all got it shooting right on center. Preceded to put 75 CCI mini mags into the bullseye size of a dime no problem at all. Brought my Ruger 10/22 from the 80's and a newer stainless Marlin model 60 to compare it. Best trigger the Weatherby by a mile, best accuracy the Weatherby a hair over the other 2. I am very happy with it, it functioned flawlessly and is a laser beam shooter. The Weatherby is also a full size rifle compared to the other 2 also. The rubber butt pad is nice too even though not really needed. Hopefully the Weaver scope will hold its zero guess I will find out after a couple trips out. Thanks to everybody for your good comments and support, I am very happy with my purchase even though I needed another 22 like a hole in the head.

I bought myself one for my 12th birthday in 1969. Over many years I found myself taking it to the range, while taking my old 40s vintage Remington BA out into the field because the Weatherby was "too nice"to risk messing up.

I kept it until fairly recently when I sold it to a co-worker looking for a .22 for his son just turning 12.

By the way, if you ever run across magazines...buy them...they are like hen's teeth!

You can never have too many good 22's! I'm down to 5 quality rifles and about 10 or 12 clunkers! Once you sell a good one, it is so hard to part with the money to buy a replacement!
