I also would like to see a 7mm-378. In addition, I would really dig an affordable-ish re-release of the 224 Wby mini Mark V.

Also, I always welcome more wood stock options! Less plastic, more wood please!  :)

Yes that's a big +1 fro more wood options! Should be able to select higher grades of wood. Even if thru custom shop.

The Vanguard Deluxe have decent wood but it's plain jane in my opinion, I don't think upgrading the Vanguard wood is viable if you want to keep it in the highly competitive market that it resides. The Mark V's have beautiful Walnut wood but something in Maple would sure be pretty.

There was some good new stuff for 2018, but I think it's safe to say Weatherby is holding off on new offerings for 2019 until the move is complete. Once things gear up in Wyoming, I think you'll see a lot of cool new things.
Some like cologne, I like the smell of gunpowder.

I started a topic a while back about how fancy or much figure Weatherby stocks had when they were made in Germany, Japan, and now the U.S.A.  I said how it seemed like the Japanese stocks consistently had significantly more figure in their stocks opposed to the German and U.S.A. versions.  Don't get me wrong all their stocks are beautiful but I wish they'd have the high level of figure like the Japanese versions had.  Also I prefer the Japanese checkering pattern opposed to the current one.  Yeah I'm getting older but to me that checkering pattern just screams Weatherby.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

A good laminate stock does both, looks good and is more weather resistant and I believe it hasn't been done on a Mark V! Just a thought!  :)

Yes now there's a thought. That is something completely different from a Weatherby point of view.
I put a boyds laminate stock on my SS Mark V .270 Wby and it isn't too bad.

That looks nice. I have a Remington 700 LSS in a 358 STA that has a similar look.

Does everyone think Weatherby will wait until their move is complete to introduce their 2019 lineup? Most companies generally put out their catalog shortly after the SHOT Show.

Heck...the year will be half over by the time Weatherby completes their move.

I think Weatherby will be announcing their new products at the SHOT Show, with production lagging behind until the new building in Wyoming is going full force. So hopefully we will find out something in 2 weeks.?!  ::)

7-378 Hmm. Interesting. I remember several here said Weatherby would never make the 6.5-300.

Hello there Nation.  We do have some exciting things coming out this year, even in the midst of our transition.  We will have a couple announcements at SHOT Show and then plan to launch the other products as they are available.  Rather than doing one big annual announcement of new products, we will be announcing products throughout the year as they are ready for release.  We do have several great product releases that will be announced between now and the summer.  I think there are a couple of them in particular that you guys will really like.  Stay tuned...

I want to say that Weatherby had a short run of Mark Vs with a laminated stock.  The Mark V SLS (Stainless Laminate Sporter).  It would be nice it they brought it back.  I'd love to have one. :)

Blackbear, do you like dealing with Reeds Gun Shop?  My son bought a rifle from them on Gunbroker, and had a very good experience with them.  Their prices are very competitive.
