If it is a Mk V, then it may be worth more than $525 in excellent condition, albeit that is the cheapest stock offered for that model. The Accumark Synthetic is the next step up, then the 2 tone walnut stock. Weatherby is known for their stocks and their stout cartridges. So the cheap stock is considerably less desirable than the Walnut stock.
The Vanguard is the low level Weatherby, a great rifle still, and it is about that new with plastic stock.
270 Weatherby is stout medicine. You can load a 130gr bullet to 3500fps. To compare, 270 Winchester shoots 130gr at 3100fps, and the 270 WSM is 3300fps with 130gr. Did it come with a muzzle break. You might want one if you shoot it much. It can kill an elk or bear easily.
