    I just received my SA-459 & I couldn’t be happier! This gun is made for diehard gobbler chasers! From butt to muzzle, this gun is well thought out. The RealTree Xtra Green camo is perfect, the gun is D&T from the factory plus comes with a Picatinny rail. No trip to the gunsmith or chasin down a base! The pistol grip on it is the BEST in the market hands down! Buy this gun!!

    I bought this gun a couple of weeks ago because I really like the look of it. I purchased an SA-08 Waterfowler last fall and used it for the opening day of Dove Season and then on a duck hunt in January. I am so impressed with that gun I wanted to try this turkey gun.

    Out of the box I am definitely impressed with the look, feel and quality. Looks and feels as good to me as the B guns that cost twice as much!

    I have ordered a scope for it. Once I try it out on targets and on hunts in a couple of weeks I will report back. I had to input something in the performance bar above in order to submit this post. Performance update forthcoming.

    I upgraded my turkey rig this year after using the same gun for 23 years. All I can is WOW! This Weatherby shotgun is an unbelievable performer at a great price. I opened up the 2015 spring season in my home state and hammered a 20# gobbler at 51 yards.

    Great gun, great value, great company!

    Have shot skeet and pheasant (1/4 of #5) as well as Rem 3″ #4 Nitro loads with no problems.I would rate the recoil as stout. Very handy size and weight, easy to move around when sitting. Needed adjustment for centering POI at 40 yds.

  5. Mad Dog

    I have used most all shotguns and until now, have always gone with the Brownings’. This little turkey gun does not beat you up, so far, patterns all mfg’s loads I have fired, very well. Good, tight patterns. I am not a big person, and I expected muzzle jump due to the short barrel. It has no more muzzle rise than any other I have used. The 20 ga. SA-08 is a joy to shoot also.
    Skeet and trap shooting are fun again.

  6. Drill

    I like the turkey gun, but they need to offer a rifled slug barrel and it would be perfect.

    Acquired the 20 Gauge for Turkey Hunting. As many Turkey Hunters, I shoot Non-Lead Shells. The factory choke is nice for Lead Rounds but, not rated for
    Non-Lead Shells. Available selection of 20 Ga Win Chokes is limited vs Mobile
    Choke, Invector or others. It would be nice to see this barrel standardized to a more popular choke design and factory standard to handle Heavier than Lead shells. Maybe the gun could come with Lead and Non-Lead Chokes from the factory…? Otherwise, this is a fantastic configuration. Handles well, shoots well and the recoils is quite manageable for youth hunters in 20 Gauge. Great job Weatherby !

    I use a benelli mod choke for my wife. Excellent shotgun for a novice turkey hunter. Weatherby in the manual explains how to use the light load gas cyclinder however only heavy loads will function the semi auto. A great disappointment for an alleged quality shotgun.

    I’ve had this shotgun a couple of years. The first year I had it, fired it at the range, took it turkey hunting and immediately had cycling issues. Weatherby was FANTASTIC about bringing it in under warranty. Discovered issue and corrected and shipped back to me. Took it out and got my turkey! Cleaned shotgun and put away in the gun safe. Took out for turkey season this year. First time out and having the same exact issue. Currently en route back to Weatherby….possibly I just got a lemon???? I really like the shotgun size and ease of shooting. Just question the dependability.

  11. CQ

    I’ve had it for 3 years and haven’t had one issue out of it and killed 12 with it, no complaints here.

  12. LRuggs

    I’ve taken Turkeys, crows and doves with my sa-459. I have other shotguns better suited for dove hunting but I can’t help but carry it most of the time. For those complaining of cycling issues, you need to use the light load cylinder and make sure you pick a shell that’s at least 1300fps. I also racked mine back and forth manually about fifty times and cleaned it good, now it never fails to cycle.

  13. A A RON

    Not that I like shooting birds long distance but made the farthest kill 94 steps stone dead with this gun. It is a turkey killing machine. I won’t hesitate to shoot one at 70 yrds if he hangs up. Gun patterns great cycles good and is easy to carry.

  14. Mike

    I purchased the shotgun in 2019, went out the first day got a 24 lb. bird, waited a few days went out again and got the second bird. Both birds between 30 to 40 yards. The shotgun’s size and ease of handling are a big plus when in the woods, can be operated with one hand if needed.
    Very happy with the performance of the shot gun, and can’t wait for the 2020 season to open.

  15. Chris Griffin

    This has been a good gun. However my one main complaint is Weatherby desperately needs to change the stock OR offer a factory raised comb with this gun. Sight picture is impossible if you choose to add any optics or reflex sight to the picatinny rail, missed my first bird with it because of that. Purchased an after market for mine and solved my problem. Also had trigger work done by Rob Roberts, which wasn’t necessary but made the trigger extra nice! Overall its been a good gun.

  16. Les Simonek

    I just got this gun for my Daughter. We loaded it with browning 3in ammo, chambered a round and shot. It did NOT discharge the empty round. We then chambered a round directly into the chamber and fired it. Again, no discharge of the fired round. We again loaded rounds in the tube and chambered a round. For the third time, we fired one-off. For the third time, no discharge of the empty. I read your reviews, and with one exception (which is exactly like mine) others were very pleased. I have owned many auto shotguns. My opinion, I feel like I have purchased a piece of junk. Making it even worse, I ordered a second one before I shot this one. I have had numerous Weatherby rifles and loved them.

  17. 2Shooter

    Got this gun in September of 2019. If I would have had this gun back in 1978 when I first started turkey hunting I would have save a lot og money on turkey guns!!! Just love the control of the pistol grip!!! Get yourself one you want be sorry!!! The only complaint I have is the trigger!!!! Work on that Weatherby!!!! I replaced the picatinny rail with a EGW universal .670 radius base for a reflex sight.
