New Custom Shop Order

New Custom Shop Order
« on: April 08, 2020, 11:17:10 AM »
Hi all, new to the forum and from what I can tell there is a ton of good info here. I placed an order with the custom shop on 3/31/20 for an Accumark 6.5 CM. Really looking forward to receiving and shooting the new rifle.

Quick question- do you know if the rifle will come with a case of any type? I know other semi/custom rifle makers include a  pelican case with custom cutouts that are included in the purchase. Just curious!

Thanks

No case that I know of comes with a new Mark V.

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

I have ordered through the custom shop before and they have never given a case with a rifle. I have never heard of Weatherby doing it either. It would be nice though. Even just a Weatherby soft case would be cool.

The red ones are really hard to come by

Where can I get my hands on one of those cases? Those are sweet.

Just checked the Weatherby web site.  Soft cases are available but no hard cases.  I'd really like to have a two rifle hard case to be able to carry my .257 and .300.  Who knows, maybe if they are kept together I might end up with a .240?

Dino, I had Americase make me a double rifle case for my 340 and 270 Roys. I had them add a few inches in length and width. It works great. Also used for two Browning Superposed 12ga, 30 inch barreled shotguns. I believe aside from a tank driving over them your rifles will be well protected. GJ
