Casting About: Weatherby SA 08 3" 12 gauge

Post by IronNoggin »

As stated, I am looking for a walnut stocked Weatherby SA 08 3" 12 gauge in good condition.

I am not in a panic for this at this point, but am casting feelers out.

If you have one that fits the description you are willing to part with, pm me the digs...

Prefer within Canada, but will consider the States if push comes to shove...

Cheers & Thanks for looking...

You should go to Canadiangunnutz, shotguns, wanted to buy, and post your request. I noticed that someone has posted there that he wants the 20 gauge version.

If you don't have posting rights there, send me a PM with your contact information and I'll post for you. A potential seller would bypass me entirely and reach out to you.

If you are fixed on having that Weatherby logo on the side (but understand - I own 4 of them) the only thing Weatherby about the SA-08 is the name on the side.

The shotgun itself is "screw for screw" a "CY" model from ATA Arms.

I'm a vendor and sell both with the ATA coming in at about 60% of the cost of the Weatherby and if I give you two of them in the same camo pattern with the name covered you will not spot a single difference.

Can you get these with a 26 or 28" barrel?

Wondering...

Just to add, I had an ATA "Weatherby" turkey gun come across the desk last year and it was identical. Just not machined to say Weatherby.
Trigger was horrible, but that's neither here nor there

We took a CY and SA-08 side by side and yes, besides the name and the serial number (which are on opposite sides between the two - maybe to tell them which "name stamping machine to send them through" everything is interchangable.

I have a PA-08 20 ga that I use for Turkey - and ya, the trigger sucks on that as well but the gun is super light and for me it is a "single purpose gun".

The best part of being a vendor is buying your own stuff at wholesale.

The worst part is you end up with multiple gun safes with a bunch of guns that have never been fired simply because "you just have to have it" :D
