The Weatherby® SA-08 20 Gauge w/28" Barrel Shotgun is a reliable workhorse that lets you move from early season dove loads to the heaviest waterfowl loads in no time. This semi-automatic features a 3" chamber, 4 + 1 capacity, chrome-lined barrel, three application-specific choke tubes (IC, M, F) and swivel studs. Brass bead front sight. Color: Black matte.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LonB Great shotgun
I needed a lightweight 20 ga autoloader for my wife and I found this Weatherby. It's just a shade over 6 lbs.
She's already ran a case of target loads through it, shooting trap, skeet and 5 Stand. The gun worked almost flawlessly. A couple minor stovepipes but nothing out of the ordinary for a new autoloader.
I used one of the stock shims to adjust the drop at heel for her. Like most synthetic stocks, shortening can be problematic. But I managed to fit it with a shorter recoil pad which got it about right.
The "carrier lever' was new to me and I don't see a need for it but isn't bothersome.
With 3 choke tubes, the stock shims, and it's low price, it's a great shotgun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Champagnecork What a sweet gun
As one who came to skeet/trap/sporting clays after age 60, I was frustrated with my scores. I have an Italian 12 ga o/u that I love, but this gun improved my scores by over 30%. Swings well, loads easily, is a pretty gun. Today I tied one youngster, beat one. They are on their high school trap team. (The fourth kid shot a "hundred" last week, two of the kids had $3000 trap guns.) I would definitely recommend this gun. My sons are riding through Big Trub Country next time we shoot together.

My 12 year old son saved up for this gun so I wanted it to be just what he wanted. He loves it. Weight is good, balance is good. First time out dove hunting he flushed a dove and shot it--first shot out of the gun.
