It might be unfair for me to post but my oldest personal Weatherby that I own is a Mark XXII given to me by my father in 1963.  It's was made by Beretta.

Hey Ed,

I think that's cheating! ;) But... that is really cool. Do you have a picture of it?

The Mark V is a 270 Wby Mag serial #29XXX puts it at 1961.
The Winchester 92 is in 38-40 it's # is 78XXX made in 1895.
Both have been in my family since new.

Obviously all Weatherby's would count even though Ed has the unfair advantage. 

That means the 130 year old 92 doesn't!  ;)  and is to hard to compete with anyway.

 I have a 1946 300pre mark v with the old stamping from south gate.  It was one of the early years with the intial RWE gold plates with engraved screws. It is a beauty, and will be hard to let it go.
