Weatherby PA-08

I have other shotguns, But I just fell in love with the PA-08. Due to my size 6'4" 225lbs it fits me great I like the way it comes up to line of any of you own this gun and if so how do you like it. Tell me goods and bads. The only thing I don't like is that it's not USA made. My other shotguns are all older US made arms.

The thread is 2 yrs old.... ( and no, I don't think it comes with shims / and I don't think they're available in aftermarket ) / but a lot of entry level pump guns do not come with them.

Its not a great gun / they're made in turkey now.../ to say the Turkish made Weatherby's have a spotty reputation, is being too my opinion.

in my opinion.
To each their own opinion. Gee you think the same plant makes the Benelli Super Nova as well as the M-4 ($1,500).


This one's a Weatherby PA-459.

Why don't you think the same "plant" making the PA-08 made your 459 and what does Benneli have to do with the price of apples?
