SA-08?

My deer hunting pal just won a Weatherby SA-08 in 12 gauge. Neither of us know much about them, except they look a lot like 1100’s. Can’t find out much reading the BS ads either. So the questions is: Those of you who do own one, how about some feed back?

I traded for the SA-08 about 2 years ago, and have only put about 600 rounds through it. So far, no failures of any kind, recoil is pleasant for a light gun, and it handles extremely well.

our local hunters and anglers club bought six SA-08's for loaner guns. We have one skeet and two trap fields. We had the privilege of trying out three different guns, all supplied by our local Bass Pro Shops. The Turkish built Weatherby has proven to be a fantastic sub/$500 auto. No problems with any of them...
