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. :biggrin:
I apologize for the the terrible photo.
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.
