Left Hand Weatherby Mark V 460 Weatherby Magnum. One of the Japanese era (1972-1994) guns so really well finished with great wood to metal fit. Wood stock with nice figure, high gloss blued action and barrel with custom brake on the 26” barrel. The custom brake doesn’t make it into a pussycat but it is a WHOLE bunch more effective than the factory brake was. Open 3 leaf Express sights. I am the second owner, it was claimed to be unfired when I got it and it appeared that it was accurately described. I have put 328 rounds through it since I got it. This is a smoking deal on this gun. The only way to get a LH 460 is to order it from the custom shop. Configured like this the current price is over $6000. The gun is located in Canada, I will take care of the cost and paper work to ship it to an FFL in the States. I have perfect trader ratings on Alberta Outdoors and Canadian Gunnutz of over 100 deals under the same user name - Dean2. If you PM me I can provide the links to those trader ratings if you can't pull them up.
The rifle will come in a hard case with QD Leupold bases, RCBS dies and 100 Brass. Rifle is NRA VG+ Asking $3,400 U.S. including shipping to your FFL.

I own one without the custom brake. It makes you check your molars to see if they are still there after you touch one off. That brake should help quite a bit. It’s a gun you won’t soon forget after you shoot it with some 500grs. Good luck hope it sells quick!

Yes the custom brake made a HUGE difference. It was built by a company that specializes in 50 BMG rifles that only weigh 15 lbs. It took the gun from being pretty rude to pretty decent. It now kicks about like a 375 with normal 250 grain loads. Still a noticable thump but it doesn't detach retinas or give you a concussion like an unbraked 460 is very capable of doing. There was a time when Weatherby insisted u sign a waiver before they would send you a 460 without a brake.

I am indeed sorry to have to let this beauty go.

For some strange reason, there are not a lot of Weatherby followers in this forum. I like and own several Weatherby rifles, but this one is beyond my shooting comfort. Good luck on the sale.

It has two strikes against it.

The first is that it is left handed, the second is that it is a Weatherby 460

That means that it is going to take a certain person to buy it. Seeing that only around 10% of the worlds population is left handed that narrows it down a lot. Then to find a hunter who is left handed narrows it down a lot more. Then to find one that wants a Weatherby 460 mag eliminates just about all who is left out there .

If I may offer a piece of advice , ship the brass separately. I recently tried to ship 140 270 brass from Canada to @Ridge Runner and it was rejected at the boarder. It would be a shame to have issues over the brass. I’d add that’s the second time in recent months I’ve attempted to ship brass and had it returned.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
