A Proven High Volume Design. Founded in 1945, Weatherby is a well known name in high performance rifles and centerfire magnum cartridges. What many shooters don't realize is that this family owned, Paso Robles, California based company has also been in the business of making quality shotguns for over 30- years now.

To achieve its high standard of reliability and quality, Weatherby has taken the basic platform of the Beretta A301 and transformed it into an even more reliable shotgun. With an unwavering commitment to testing, new tooling and the benefit of a new manufacturing facility in Turkey, the SA-08 is a modern semi- automatic that represents the best value of any gas driven shotgun on the market.

At the heart of the SA-08 is its dual valve gas system. Two interchangeable pistons are provided, one for heavy loads and the other for light. This lessens wear and tear on the gun, while reducing recoil.

To swap out pistons, remove the barrel and forend, switch pistons and then reassemble. It's just that simple. The piston marked "Light Loads" will handle up to 7/8- ounce shells, while the "Heavy Loads" piston was specifically engineered for everything up to the heaviest 3" 20- gauge shells.

There are two holes in the port cylinder on the barrel that bleed gases to the pistons, which then regulate how much gas is needed to initiate proper cycling of the bolt. A return spring is located in the buttstock and is responsible for bringing the bolt back into battery.

To achieve rapid target acquisition, the SA-08 employs a technology Weatherby calls "Muzzle Weighted Balance". In essence, this system places the center of balance slightly forward of the gun's midpoint.

As a result, it gives the shotgun an almost muzzle weighted feel, which enables a smoother swing and follow through on each shot. It also allows the SA-08 to be mounted comfortably, like an natural extension of the shooter's body. In turn, the gun stays in line with your eye for enhanced accuracy.

The Weatherby is an incredibly durable shotgun
. In fact, during the design and development phase in the lab, the gun was put through a rigorous 6,000 round torture test without a single hiccup.

From extreme dove hunting in Argentina, to migratory birds in the American Flyways, or even upland Pheasant hunting on the open plains, the Weatherby SA-08 has passed every high volume shooting test with resounding success. SA-08 receivers are CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum to reduce overall weight without compromising strength.

The shotgun has a handy magazine cutoff lever that allows you to clear the chamber or change loads without the need to empty the magazine tube. This is an important safety and performance feature typically found on quality auto loading shotguns.

When hunting migratory birds, the standard five round magazine tube can be quickly retrofitted with a removable two- round plug (supplied), which then reduces the total capacity to the mandated three round limit. The 26" chrome lined barrel can withstand years of high volume shooting, while reducing fouling and cleaning time.

For improved patterning and less shooter fatigue, the barrel has lengthened forcing cones. It has also been outfitted with interchangeable chokes; three have been provided with the package -- IC, M & F.
To ensure a smooth, non- binding action for years of dependable use, the bolt has been chrome plated. For disassembly and cleaning, the entire SA-08 trigger assembly is easily removable.

A manual safety button is conveniently located at the rear of the trigger guard. The injection molded polymer stock and forend are lightly textured for a positive grip and improved handling.

Breaking at slightly more than 4- pounds, the excellent trigger pull enhances accuracy and shot consistency. A stealth- like matte black finish minimizes detection from migratory birds or other game animals.

The ventilated barrel rib is home to a bead front sight that gets on target quickly. Overall, the Weatherby SA-08 is a fast handling, light weight, affordable, reliable, gas driven shotgun designed for years of dependable service.
