I completely agree with you there Elvis. I too find that the Weatherby style stock just fits me and as you put it, it just melts into you.

I like the line "Weatherby Mark V Deluxe is the Rolls-Royce of hunting rifles." I've been thinking the same thing, just couldn't verbalize it. Couldn't agree more.

Who manufactures the Mark V Deluxe stock for Weatherby. It is called "AA" grade fancy walnut, while the Vanguard Deluxe is called a "AA" claro walnut with high gloss finish. Is there a difference in the woods used, since they both say "AA" grade, or is it the same type wood with different finishes?

The AA grading means the level of figure (the amount of grain for a lack of a better way to put it) not the type of wood.  There's several different walnut woods such as but not limited to English, Turkish, and Carlo.  The same is true with Maples and Oaks, there's hard maple, soft maple, curly maple, bird's eye maple, white oak, yellow oak to name just a few.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

I sure love mine, made in Germany between 1964 - 1973.

Hello Everyone,

I dont even know if Im going about this the correct way as far as posting. My fianc has generously purchased me Mark V deluxe chambered in 6.5x300. I have shot your major rifle calibers, even some big ones. The recoil on this rifle is punishing for me. I have a spinal condition and it definitely has caused some flair up issues. Are there good recoil management solutions for the deluxe model rifles? I saw the accubreak ST, but not sure that will fit my rifle. Im obviously not going to get rid of it, its a beautiful work of art. Any suggestions that you can provide would be so appreciated!!

Try a slip over recoil pad from Limbsaver
Remember 10534

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

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

Welcome to the Nation. I too would suggest a slip on shoulder pad. I just bought one myself for range work. It may be that you will need a brake fitted. I would suggest sending it to Weatherby to have one fitted as it will need to have the dark gloss blueing done to match your rifle.
