Weatherby Mark V Rifle Production Comes to California

Weatherby has moved Mark V rifle production to company headquarters in Paso Robles, Calif. Mark V rifles had been manufactured in Brainerd, Minn., since 1999.

“I am very proud that our Mark V rifles are once again being made here in California,” said company President Ed Weatherby. “By going in-house, we can more easily oversee and control all aspects of craftsmanship, production, quality control and shipping. The Mark V has always been the heart and soul of the Weatherby brand. It’s only fitting that our first-born rifle has come home.”

Weatherby introduced the Mark V action in 1958. The first Mark V models were made in the company’s facility in South Gate, Calif. Over the years, Weatherby has built the Mark V action in factories from the U.S. to Germany to Japan.

“Today, many still refer to our Mark V action as the world’s strongest bolt action,” Weatherby

remarked. “Hunters and shooters around the world continue to recognize Mark V rifles for their flat-shooting, hard-hitting and accurate performance.”
