    I am after a replacement floorplate for my 338-378 Accumark..
    My broken floorplate is an aluminum casting and is quite thin in that area where it broke at the floorplate hinge pin.
    I would prefer a steel replacement if that is at all possible otherwise I will gladly settle for another aluminum casting.
    Can anyone help me or advise me where I can obtain/purchase a replacement.
    I tried the Weatherby Nation forum for the Weatherby Inc. email address but there was no email address to be found; Weatherby Inc only has the letter and postage envelope option. You would think this company would really be up there in this Hi-Tech world wouldn't you?
    I am from Australia and do not have the same sort of access to suppliers as you guys do in the States and our agent here will take months to order one and who knows how much I will get stung for a floorplate from them.
    I would greatly appreciate any help here.

    Many Thanks

    RR

    RR,
    I broke mine a couple of days after I got my accumark. I called weatherby and ordered another one for about $75. That was here is the US. I do not know of any aftermarket bottom metal. Let me know if I can help.

    Hi Canderson,

    Thanks for that; I'll give them a call tomorrow.
    Just have to work out the time difference between Australia and the States.
    That's why emails are great you don't have to be up at strange hours to contact them.

    Cheers

    Steel was used on the German MK V - Die Cast housing, steel floorplate on the Jap guns & most of the US built ones went to a 2 piece POS.

    There was a company who offered all steel years ago, just can't think who it was anymore - it may come to me though.

    Call them as they have top notch customer service at least with me over the years they have been awesome.

    Good luck

    ANARCHIST,

    Thanks for that link, however unfortunately they have no trigger guard/floor plate assemblies.
    I will give Weatherby Spare Parts a phone call and see where I go from there.

    cheers
