Mark V 7rm, Whats it worth?

Have a buddy that I work with that has a nice Wby Mk V in 7RemMag. It was a hand me down from his father in law, and I doubt he's even put a box of shells through it, and is wanting to sell it.

I don't know much about weatherby's, I know off the shelf the Mark V's are high, but I'm on the fence on buying it from other than adding another rifle to the collection, so I'm not going to dump alot on it.

I've shot it, shoots great, but in need of decent glass.

Its in good condition, just a simple visual looks like the barrel and throat are pretty smooth, bolt face only very light wear. The barrel is has light exterior pits 2inches and out toward the bore.

The stock on this rifle is beautiful, the main reason I'd like to have it, walnut i guess with gorgeous marbling grain. It has some dents but not enough to take away from this wood.

So he doesn't know what its worth other than selling it at a pawn shop, so wondering what he would get there and what would be good for me to offer him.
Thanks

weatherby rifles in non weatherby calibers typically arent as valuable but its hard to say, just get a blue book and rate it. with pitting though its not going to rate terribly high.

Would 500$ be a reasonable offer on this gun, or is that high or low

Re: Mark V 7rm, Whats it worth?

Well interestingly enough the Mark v deluxe isnt shown in 7mm remington mag at all. So I need to know what model specifically it is. wood or synthetic? If it is a mark 5 deluxe, are you sure its a weatherby barrel on it? if it is maybe its a custom shop deal. I would call weatherby with the serial number they should be able to give you all the info we need. A Mark V Deluxe in most calibers is about $1000 in 95% up to $1500 in 100% and in bad shape worth as little as $500.

As far as customizing a weatherby, as far as I know they are great, PM Long Time Long Ranger he knows as much as anyone about weatherbys.

Thanks for the reply
Its wood
I may call weatherby and see what they can tell me
I would probably call it 90-95 percent with the exterior rust toward the end of the barrel, other than that no defects.
