This topic may has been answered 1,000 times already, however I’m fairly new to Weatherby Nation and have a few “bees” and am looking at another.

I’m looking at a mark V with “South Gate” in the receiver. I was just curious of years of production that would say “South Gate”

1958 to 1972
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

so if my new to me used 340 MkV says southgate and has an H prefix, then the only year it could have been produced is 1972, correct?
thanks,

If it's just stamped Southgate,California it could have been built from 1958 to 1973.If it's stamped Southgate,Calif. Made In Japan it was built between 1972 to around 2000.

I believe the "H" prefix says it's Japan made.  :)
