Adam brought up an excellent point about attacting new Weatherby shooters who may not otherwise try a Weatherby rifle. I hope this is the case. I, for one, appreciate the fact that wood stocks will not be phased out and forgotten - wood and plastic both have their place and I know there are many of you out there who, like myself, love the look and feel of wood that plastic can never duplicate. A MK-V Deluxe is both a well-built tool and a work of art in your hands. For a rifle that will get taken out in the rain or get banged around, sure, plastic has it's virtues. Also, I would bet that most posters here on WN are the most dedicated, loyal Weatherby customers around anywhere.
Come and take it.

Oh, and for all you "wood stock" fellas out there...I'll get you something new in the Mark V one of these days...just remain patient.  I got some things in the works.

We "wood stock" guys appreciate that. Something that I wouldn't think would be a big cost would be offering something existing (ie: Mark V deluxe or Vanguard Sporter) in some limited edition runs of classic chamberings... think 257 Roberts, 7x57 Mauser, and even throw in a 375 Weatherby. I would be all over something like that.

Regardless, thanks for addressing us "old souls". I'm only in my mid 40s but thanks to my hunting mentors, I have good tastes in rifles.

I like rifles with wood stocks

Nice rig, and I'm sure it has it's following and its purpose.  Unfortunately, not for me.  Maybe I'm getting old but give me a MK-V or Vanguard in wood and call it a day.  This is a bit too tacticulo for my taste.
