    Howa makes weatherby and aftermarket parts are interchangeable, so they are basically the same

    I don't shoot the siege guns any more.:D

    But I git my second Weatherby recently along with some other guns and a Ft Knox safe.
    Did not know that Weatherby made a semi auto 22 and further the lever on the rt side converts this little gun to a single shot or semi auto. I have not been able to shoot it yet but am really anxious to do so. It is the model XX11.

    Oh man, you've got a nice looking MarkXXII there UF!
    (that's Mark 22 if you do the roman numeral math) That's what their new bolt-action 22 is called as well, but it ain't nowhere near as purty as the old semi-auto.

    I had a chance at a tube-fed one quite a few years back but didn't have the cash at the time...that was back when they were still affordable.
    Nowadays, everyone around here thinks the old semi-auto Weatherbys are collectible or something. :rolleyes: I just want one for a "sunday-go-to-meeting" bunny gun. :D

    According to "Shooting Times" there is a new version of the Vanguard out called the S2. Supposed to have an improved trigger among other changes. My Vanguard is about 4 years old and I am quite content with the trigger on it.

    Howa is a great firearm coupled with the price, accuracy, and aftermarket weatherby parts that fit. It's a great deal!!
