I’ve been used as a jon boat paddle. I’ve been belly crawled through mud. I’ve scored triples on ducks, doubles on pheasants and just cracked 100 straight at trap league. I am one tough shooter.

The SA-08™ Semi-Auto Shotgun is Available Exclusively at weatherby.com & Bass Pro Shops
The SA-08™ Semi-Auto Shotgun comes with a durable synthetic stock that is impervious to wet weather. Based on Weatherby’s dependable dual-valve gas-operated system, with a chrome-plated bolt, that cycles 2-3/4″ and 3″ shells smoothly without binding or jamming. A CNC-machined aircraft-grade alloy receiver significantly reduces the shotgun’s weight, making it one of the lightest shotguns on the market; factory swivel studs provide the option to carry gun to and from the field with a sling. A vent-ribbed barrel with a single brass bead front sight allows instant target acquisition and fluid swinging. The Weatherby SA-08 Semi-Auto Shotgun comes with 3 screw-in choke tubes (F, M, and IC); threads accept optional Weatherby choke tubes. A drop out trigger assembly allows rapid field disassembly, and the chrome-lined barrel cleans effortlessly.

I’ve owned this sa08 for about 2 years now. I picked it up after watching several review videos on YouTube with everyone loving it. My gun cycled flawlessly for trap, doves, and chukar. (Any light load). However, I’m an avid Waterfowl hunter, and this gun is just not made for the marsh what so ever. No matter what lubricant you use, it will not cycle. It ejects the shell fine, but doesn’t have the power to push a shell in the chamber. Super disappointed because this gun fits me so well and swings like a champ. After every hunt I have to completely field strip it, clean it, just so you might be able to shoot twice if you manually close the bolt. I will not buy another Weatherby shotgun, or even a rifle for that matter. I’m super bummed with Weatherby. Save up for a different gun if you are going to use it as a duck gun. I take exceptional care of my firearms, but even with the heavy piston in, this gun will disappoint you.
