FAQ

Can I send my rifle back to Weatherby® for rebluing and installation of a new stock?

Yes - Please contact Weatherby first and then your rifle can be sent to Weatherby for refurbishing or modification.

Weatherby® offers rifles in standard caliber chamberings. Do they make ammunition for them?

Weatherby currently manufactures ammunition for Weatherby Magnum calibers only, and has no intentions to manufacture on an ongoing basis standard cartridge ammunition. Weatherby recommends you purchase premium standard cartridge ammunition from a high quality ammunition manufacturer.

NOTE:  Weatherby did produce a small run of non-Weatherby caliber ammunition in 1997. Calibers included: .270 Win., .30-06 Spfd., 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., .338 Win. Mag., and .375 H&H Mag.

Will Weatherby® ever make left-handed rifles again, if so what calibers?

Some Weatherby® Mark V® rifles (.257 Wby. Mag. - .460 Wby. Mag.) can be ordered as a left hand model. For more information, please call the Weatherby Custom Shop at (805) 227-2600.

What is Weatherby®’s Warranty Policy?

Weatherby®’s service policy statement reads as follows:

“Weatherby® is a name that has been synonymous with quality firearms for over 65 years. All Weatherby® firearms are manufactured of the finest materials, and have been thoroughly inspected and tested in every phase of production.

Because of the confidence we have in our products, Weatherby® does not provide a written warranty, but rather stands behind its reputation for customer service and satisfaction.

Simply stated, we will consider requests for service or repair of Weatherby® firearms on a case-by-case basis. A determination will be made, taking into consideration such things as the age and condition of the firearm, and the circumstances surrounding its malfunction or other problem.

Weatherby® will not be responsible for defects resulting from ordinary wear and tear, alterations by unauthorized persons, accidents, misuse, use of incorrect or other than factory-loaded ammunition, or failure to provide reasonable and normal maintenance.

Should any Weatherby® firearm require service or repair under this service policy, it must be delivered transportation prepaid to an authorized Weatherby Service Center. The product must be accompanied by a proof of purchase, and a letter explaining the problem. The firearm should also be insured by the owner at time of shipment, as Weatherby, Inc. can accept no responsibility for damage or loss in transit. Weatherby® will pay all charges to return the product to the owner if it is accepted for service or repair under the provisions of this policy.”

Are any components interchangeable between the Mark V® and the Vanguard®?

No. Components are not interchangeable between the Mark V® and the Vanguard®.

Are Mark V® barrels cryogenically treated?

No.

Why are some Weatherby® rifles “free floated” and some are not?

We have found through our testing that barrels having a smaller outside diameter than our #3 contour require upward pressure to help stabilize the barrel for increased accuracy.  Our free floated barrels have enough rigidity in the barrel for them to be free floated.

Can I send my rifle back to Weatherby® to have an Accubrake™ installed?

There are Weatherby-authorized Accubrake™ installation centers located across the United States. You can have an Accubrake™ installed on your rifle at any one of these centers or in the Weatherby Custom Shop in Paso Robles, CA. The work done by these centers is the same as would be done by the factory and the warranty of the rifle would still be in place. A list of these authorized installation centers can be found on this website or you can call Weatherby for a list.

If I order one of your Weatherby® rifles can it be shipped to my friend who has his own FFL?

The rifle must be ordered through a Weatherby Dealer or Distributor.
