He could probably have Weatherby rebarrel it with an Accumark barrel for $350-400...And you can buy the B&C Accumark stock from Stockey's for around $285.
If you had a used Mark V you had not much money invested in, you could easilly make it an Accumark for under $750.
That would only be slightly more than his SPS Tactical would cost him, and it would be a LRH magnum for hunting and shooting.
In the end, it is the OP's decision....I just hate to see a Mark V 7mm Wby go out like a chump.
How much is the local GS owner offering you trade-in for your Mark V 7mm Wby? I might be interested in buying it for that amount, if my local FFL will accepts transfers from individuals.
