Great to hear they are going to take care of it.

Yes, Scott is on it! looking forward to a successful resolution to this - doing a Moose hunt with this rifle in early fall.

 Hope your problem is solved!  I'm from Canada and was hoping to not hear of the hassle you are having with Canada warranty service.

Weatherbyman22, this tightening the rear guard screw before the front guard screw is new to me.  My mentor, God rest his soul, informed me to snug both guard screws up! but torque the front first and then the rear.  I have done this for 50 years on all my rifles and it seems to work.  No real accuracy problems and the barrel Chanel spacing seems to be rather even.  I have three Weatherby Mark V's, two synthetic stocked and the other very nice piece of Deluxe wood.  I have tightened the guard screws wrong I guess, but the shot groups and barrel Chanel spacings seem to like what I did.  Is this a recommendation from Weatherby?
