Weatherly mark V or a Blazer R8?

Both have high grade wood, both come in wby calibers, both same price. can switch barrels/calibers with the R8

What's a Blazer? grin

But for real, if they are the same price the Blaser is the better deal.

Never been a fan of Blasers. Don't really have any experience with them but just don't like the way they look. Plus I think they are kind of the Yetis of the rifle world-many have them just because they say "I'm high dollar cool." YMMV

I would take the blaser as they have a better reputation for accuracy.

Weatherby rifles are nice but are built for speed over accuracy.

I only know two guys that hunt with Blasers. Not common at least in Texas

I agree they are not the sharpest looking guns at first but they will grow on you.


Personally, I do favor the weatherby look over the blaser

Weatherby rifles are guaranteed to be sub moa. blazers are not. Also Blazers are not very well known for shooting sub moa. I have shot a lot of them and usually the best you get is about 1.25".The only advantage a Blazer has ove any rifle is the interchangeable barrels system and you can buy a new complete rifle for the price of the barrels for a Blazer.
And yes have and do own both brands of these guns. I also have not seen a R8 for the same price as a Mark V.
I have to ask dee have you owned a new generation Weatherby or are you making a statement based on opinion only?

To order a lefty from the custom shop for weatherby is gonna run about $4200

I should have bought a mark V back in 2006 when I had the chance for $1700

Not the newest gen but know of several that are sub par in the accuracy department.

My bil has a new accumark stainless fluted 257 that is just over moa but also won't feed out of the magazine and is about to head to weatherby to get checked out.

Both are beautiful guns..go with the one you value most which sounds like the Weatherby also from some that seem to know the Weatherby is more accurate which would help me close the deal.

I say Merkel RX Helix. Or Sako. laugh stir

I'd pick the Mark V because I've shot one and it is sweet. Although R8 is on of my dream guns, I have no experience with them.
