 Have you talked to the people at Weatherby?

 If they won't do the work, I bet they'd sure refer you to a good 'smith.

There won't be many smiths specializing in Weatherby's since they are not nearly as popular as they were 20 years ago. 
 
I'd just find a good smith who does customs.  The Mark V is not much different to accurize or work on than any other rifle.  If you simply want a barrel change I'd send it off to Krieger.  They provided a lot of the barrels for Mark V's up until 2 years ago.  They will know how to properly install a barrel too.

I'm not sure.  They used to advertise Krieger Criterion barrels in most Mark V models.  2 or 3 years ago they stopped mentioning it.  At that time I frequented a Weatherby forum and many folks there were trying to get the last years model that still had the Krieger barrel.  I never saw it mentioned who the new supplier was.  They may very well have just as good of barrels as they ever did for all I know.  The Criterion is Krieger's lowest grade barrel offered.
