In post #9 (on page 2), the owner stated his barrel was touching the stock at the front left: "It wants to shoot but is throwing consistant to two points of impact.  The barrel is hard to the left at the end of the barrel channel so tight that it will tear a dollar bill if you try to pull it out." He later posts that he bedded the action and opened up the barrel channel in the stock to eliminate the touch point. I just bought a Mark XXII in .17 and the stock is touching the barrel at the same point. Still waiting to get a scope and go to the range, but I wondered if any other owners have the same stock touch point. I am not sure if this is a deliberate feature or not. Whether it affects accuracy or not is another issue.
Any other owners have the stock touching the barrel? Any WBY guys have a response? Thanks.

hubris 1, I did use the Talley mounts and a Leupold 2x7 scope. This rifle is the most accurate rifle I own. I was shooting 1/4" at 50 yds. " 1 hole " incredible!!!   Thanks again for the info.

Dougk, as I stated in my previous post, I used a Leupold 2x7. I prefer Leupold, but for the magnification,  I wish I would of went higher because the rifle is so accurate, you can shoot flies at 50 yds, so I would recommend a 6x18 or higher.

thank you for the advice.  Leupold is an excellent scope and I have  an EFR model on my Winchester 52 reproduction.  I have been looking at the Monarch 3-12 x42 with side focus.

I dont think you can go wrong with a Monarch.

 8) I used to own in my first firearms collection a Weatherby Mark XXII semiautomatic rifle with 24" barrel that came with iron sights as well as being drilled for a scope mount option. When Weatherby reintroduces an improved and updated version of this older model I will add it to my present collection.

I can't find the Mark XXII on the Weatherby website.   Did they quit making them?

Yep,and if you want one they are twice the $825 that they originally sold for too.That's NIB.Seen some lightly used one's go in the $1300 range.A used 17HMR  in one just sold for $1660 plus shipping on gunbroker.Those NIB can get to 2K if the right buyer comes along.

I've been looking to add a Mark XXII .17 HMR. I recently came across one with a serial # that ends with a "W". I'm assuming the "W" refers to Weatherby, but a little surprised as this is the only one I've seen (having looked at over a dozen) with a "W". Anyone familiar with why only some of the .17 HMR rifles have the "W" at the end of the serial #?

I did send them an e-mail last week (no reply yet), but will also try calling. I'll let you know if I receive any information. It's a fairly early 17 (serial # AS0012_ _W), which may have something to do with the "W".
