To commemorate its move from California to Sheridan, Wyoming, Weatherby, Inc. has crafted two styles of commemorative .300 Weatherby Mag rifles — a gold and the silver version.
The Gold Version will retail for $10,000 while the silver will sell for $6,500.
Both will feature the recognizable “Bucking Horse and Rider” engraved on the floor plate. The walnut stocks has a raised-comb Monte Carlo design, right-side palm swell and a custom designed mountain scene integrated into the fine line checkering.
A portion of the proceeds for these rifles will be going back to the state of Wyoming, according to a company press release.
Features on the gold version will include: a French walnut stock with a hand rubbed oil finish. An ebony forend tip and grip cap. A damascened bolt with a hand checkered knob. The bolt sleeve and receiver are engraved with gold and silver accents. The barrel bell and muzzle are decorated with gold and silver barrel bands. The bottom plate has the Wyoming “Bucking Horse and Rider” engraved with gold inlay. The rifle includes a custom leather case stamped with the Weatherby logo and a green velvet interior.
“We have had so many requests about the first guns stamped Sheridan, Wyoming, we thought it only right that the first rifles off the line in Sheridan should be these incredible Mark V Commemorative Rifles," said Adam Weatherby in a press release. "The state of Wyoming and the city of Sheridan have both done so much to help us with our move, we are delighted to ensure that this monumental effort is remembered by Weatherby and our users for years to come.”
