Hadn't noticed those spiral barrels before. Are attractive though. Like the wood and those rosewood forends on that one. Funny how walnut and glossy bluing used to be the norm for the longest time. Nowadays synthetic, carbon, fiberglass are used for stocks on many firearms. And some of those stocks ain't cheap either depending on materials used in construction. A Weatherby Lazer Mark was my dream back in the 80s but that price was too steep for me unfortunately. Sure looks like a showpiece though!

Yep those Weatherbys sure were gorgeous. Even the run-of -the-mill guns like the 700, 70, or Ruger 77 often seem fancy with walnut and polished bluing seem more custom lately but were very common for reasonable money back in the 60s-80s. They should be worth a premium on the used gun market these days. Guess materials have gone through the roof lately .
