    The Weatherby Mark XXII

    Here is a rifle of mine that you don't see very often.
    It a very classy .22 rimfire Weatherby Mark XXII ~ Really nice fancy grained Walnut stock with a white line spacer and a Rosewood fore-end - Nice Long DEEP hot blued tapered barrel - Nice factory sights.
    I have a LEUPOLD scope on mine.

    An INTERESTING feature on this 10 shot magazine fed .22 is the unusual select fire Auto to Single Shot lever. Neat!

    My rifle has had a couple of changes that I made to the stock (which was a bit too short for me) since there was no Rosewood available to me (at the time) I carefully added an African Bubinga~Wood butt extension.
    Also...since I hate really glossy heavily varnished wood I stripped plastic looking finish off the stock and gave it just a light oil finish. Much more natural looking but, still waterproof.
    The original wood looked like a Perfect Walnut Mirror but, I just personally hate that look on any wood. So...I got rid of it.
    I apologize for the the terrible photo.
    Extremely ACCURATE rifle!
    It is such a pleasure to shoot!
    The rifle is a "tack~driver" with a nice light, very crisp trigger.
    This rifle was assembled for Weatherby in Japan to cut production costs.
    I hafta say...the Japanese did an Absolutely Beautiful Job of it!
    These sell for a lot of $$ these days - (of course) I altered mine so...I'm guessing that has affected its resale value a bit.


    Here are some other pics from the web.

    Very Sweet

    It's much more rifle than you usually see in a .22 rimfire.

    Beautiful rifle QK - I envy you that.

    Seeing as you brought that one up, let me throw in another ''oldie''. This is my Mauser Obendorfe .22LR, 10 round mag, bolt action. It is I believe circa 1920's and supposedly in good shape worth a grand or so. Mine is not 100% having ''been around'' and seen much use but still - a pretty clean specimen.

    Back in IIRC 1995, I assisted a farmer in controlling his darned rabbit explosion - took 134 during the summer months. Very accurate (if heavy) rifle. Good thing is tho it fits like a full size and heck - the chamber area is all of 1" diameter - if you didn't see the wee magazine you'd think the gun was a .243 or .270 at least!

    Not a great pic re quality - oh and scope is not too special but does just fine.

    This would be one of the last guns I'd wish to part with.

    Really Nice Chris

    Very Nice Classic.
    Yes, that is worth a few dollaros.

    Another GREAT .22 was the Remington Matchmaster...of which I had a MINT one that I sold for about 200 buck 20 years ago & is now selling for about 1,500 - This was exactly the one I had.

    Oh shucks QK - how often do we regret selling a gun eh! That is a beaut' and certainly would be in demand right now - I bet you wonder where it is!!

    One other I got rid of and have felt sick ever since - was a BSA MkII target rifle - Martini action, heavy barrel and totally tricked out with hand stop, butt hook, Parker Hale aperture sights - including front sight which took one of many inserts. I don't even have a pic <sigh>.

    I used to do precision rifle smallbore back in 80's and this rifle now would cost about $600 and up even in basic trim. I traded that in - plus a small .410 folder (which I also regret losing) - to get my first centerfire revo - actually my original M27.

    Oh well - we live and learn.
