I don't believe they are being made currently.

They weren't noted for being accurate.

As with most Weatherby products the pistols they made are quality. You will not go wrong with using any of these. I also don't believe they are making them now. You can find them around. Good luck and let us know if you pick one up.

They made the first version Weatherby CFP (center fire pistol)with a laminated or black HS stock and stainless fluted barrel. They brought them out again as the Weatherby CFP (compact firing platform) with a tan Bell and Carlson stock and matte fluted barrel. They are no longer in production and the cost was/is pretty steep which is what I believe doomed them. They are not a target pistol but they are a solid hunting gun if 1.5" groups will work for you. If it's priced right, go for it you'll always be able to get your money back. I have 3 of the early production models in 243, 7-08 and 308. They all shoot as good as most of todays hunting rifles but no where as good as my XP's.

I bought one in 7mm-08 when they first came out and I never could make it shoot 100 yd. groups as good as my XP's, or my Contenders either for that matter.....it went down the road.

I have heard complaints about CFP accuracy before. Weatherby's standard accuracy guarantee applies to the CFP, but none of the complainers that I contacted had ever raised the complaint with Weatherby. scratch head I always felt that it was a marketing error for Weatherby to offer the CFP in the same .308 family of cartridges that was offered in the Savage Striker,XP-100, Lone Eagle, etc.. It seems to me that offering the CFP in some Weatherby unique cartridges i.e. .257 Weatherby; Ackley Improved cartridges, etc.; or something completely different, would have added more appeal to a quality pistol.

Maybe I'll get lucky with my $5 ticket.

One thing I've noticed on the CFP's is that they shoot best with heavier bullets and mid range(slower)velocity loads. When you try to push them up to max loads the groups really open up but speed isn't everything.

If they have been sitting there for a long time they may take a lessor offer.
