Mark V Deluxe

The Weatherby Mark V Deluxe is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in 11 cartridges. The Mark V Deluxe is one of Weatherby’s premium grade rifles.

It has a steel barrel and receiver with a high-luster blued finish. In addition, the Mark V Deluxe has a Claro brand pistol grip walnut stock and a rosewood fore-end, both with checkering. The Mark V Deluxe features a fully adjustable trigger that is initially factory-tuned to 3.5 pounds. Its fluted bolt body reduces surface area and weight. The Mark V Deluxe is also equipped with a cocking indicator that visually indicates whether the rifle is uncocked or cocked, and a Pachmayr Decelerator brand recoil pad.

Weatherby is notable for their bolt-action operating systems–a modified Model 54 action–which is an early 20th century design for centerfire cartridges. Weatherby’s Mark V’s bolt body is designed with six lugs (nine for magnums) that secures the bolt firmly into the receiver. With more lugs, or wider lugs, the bolt requires a short 54-degree lift for full rotation and chambering. Weatherby also strengthened the bolt body by milling it from a single piece of steel, so it can withstand more powerful cartridges.

Weatherby recommends the Mark V Deluxe for hunting large game.
