Been looking into getting the SA-08? Was wondering what yall think about it and if it's not just a cheap gun? Plane to use it for dove, duck, and turkey.

Have shot a lot of ammo through my SA-08. It puts lead down range just fine and no complaints.

However, I'd recommend saving your lunch money for another 2 months and buy a Beretta A300 instead. The workmanship and semi-auto system is much better on the A300. Definitely worth a little extra money for the A300. Best value semi-auto on the market in my opinion.

For the cost of that SA-08 I'd buy a Stoeger M3000. The camo versions come in APG or Max-5 and can be had for $549 out the door. Add the Stoeger $50 rebate (thru Dec 31st), that drops the price to $499 before tax.

I'll take the weatherby over that stoger every day and I love my weatherby cleans extremley easy after the day of redheads you could barley see the black finish took a little rem oil and elbow grease clean as a whistle but if you have a little more money go with the beretta I've had my weatherby for while not 1 issue

I have two of them I bought on sale a couple of years ago. Both have been flawless. My son has out grown the youth 20 gauge so I bought a stock pad to help extend the length. So now I shoot the 20 and gave him the 12. I love the light short barrel 20ga for the long death march through the swamp. I only used my Benelli one time last year and stuck with the 20ga SA-08 for all duck hunts.

It's not really a Weatherby, but I have one and it is awesome. I shopped for two months and looked at about 11 diff semi autos. It fit me better than the winchester, rem 1100, Stoeger, and a lot of others. Mine is 12ga and I bought it mainly for dove and pheasant. With the wood stock, it looks very good too. Would buy it again in a heartbeat.

Negative ghostrider... If nothing has changed in the past few years, Weatherby SA-08 shotguns are manufactured in Turkey by ATA.

Rgr that chief. I may have stated it like a question but it wasn't.
 
Current Weatherby shotguns are made in Italy through a collaborative effort with Italian gunmaker Fausti Stefano.

So the new SA 08 are the old price we expect but alot better performance then weatherby is k ow for. Get em while there cheap. In a few years there sell used for more then new after they upgrade the line.
