Our Assessment: This is an excellent field rifle that wants to go hunting. EXTREMELY light at 6 pounds 10.3 ounces naked, you won’t have to worry about cutting your shoulder or arm fatigue from long hikes in the backwoods. The 20 Inch barrel and under 14” LOP means you have a nice compact rifle that can go from that gun rack to the field without bumping the ceiling or windshield on the way out. Buy a nice 3 x 9 variable scope from your favorite manufacturer, zero at 200, and enjoy your new hunting rifle. Weatherby holds high production standards for accuracy and wouldn’t put their name on it if they didn’t feel it was a quality rifle.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
