After 12 yrs of monkeying around buying and selling and swapping countless rifles I finally found a Weatherby Mark 5 in .270 Wby Mag and 26" barrel that I could afford. So I put er on layaway tonight. Its plain and has a black nukeproof stock, so not the fancydan model like Redgreen shoots, but its still a wby mag WITH the 26" barrel. Should have it way before elk season so I'll have time to wring it out some. Already have a scope for it and it comes with Refield(Leupold) bases and rings. It'll have the honor spot in my gun cabinet next to my two sstl Vanguards. I hope my great friend Redgreen will be proud of me when I come to visit in a cpl yrs and outshoot him. Maybe by then I'll have Leupy scope for on it.
I hope all you old goats are well.
