    Weatherby MK V .460 Rifle

    The .460 Weatherby Custom, A fantastic and accurate example of the type. This particular rifle is from the Weatherby Custom Shop. An accurate and fun rifle for the 'big boy' type.

    The rifle comes with the factory Muzzle brake, which greatly improves its handling performance with a noticeable reduction in recoil, handy for a rifle of this type.

    The scope is a Leupold Vari-X III 1-5x25mm. A excellent close range scope, with clear glass. A great companion to this rifle.

    Who knows, I'm sure the Gestapo will come for it if its not. I'd love someone buy it though, its taking up space.

    Thanks. I could ask the local AO but I doubt he is going to be allowed to say anything one way or another on which rifles remain legal for sure, until the Govt gets its shit together. I.e. never.

    It is lovely firearm. Class manufacture.

    To the best of my knowledge having read all drafts, there have not been any calibre restrictions for bolt actions. I suspect if the comrades do they'll start at .50cal. I cannot for the life of me imagine they'll ban this particular type of rifle.
