Weatherby Mark XXII
I first read of this rifle in Jack O’Connor’s column in the April 1964 issue of Outdoor Life (I had to dig through my files to confirm the date). It had the distinctive “Weatherby” stock style with prominent Monte Carlo, cheekpiece, skip-line checkering and high-gloss finish.
I was already a confirmed Weatherby fan at the time, even though I had never seen one except in pictures. I was 14, penniless, and though I was enthralled by Weatherby ads and articles I couldn’t imagine ever owning one.
