Element® Waterfowler Max-5®

Element® Waterfowler Max-5®


* Required Fields



I know from whence I came, and pay tribute to those autoloaders before me – if even by different names: To those humpbacked Belgians and 1100s who have graced wetlands and duck camps since the time my great grandpa crouched in a blind. I have your inspiration in me, and something more. I have Weatherby pedigree and the modern magic of inertia operation, a Griptonite stock, optimal chokes for the game of the day and fiber optics to lead my charge to the target. Here’s to waterfowling and to all, who like me, have made it their passion.

  1. Unbelievable

    By Wiserboxer October 24, 2018

    I am on my second full season with this gun, and I must say, this gun has out-performed not only my expectations, but any other semi that I have been in the field with. It eats any ammo I put through it.. the lightest 2 3/4 trap loads, to magnum steel and bismuth loads. The light weight is not an issue as the action absorbs the recoil and follow up shots are a breeze. If you are looking for a quality affordable semi, this is the gun. You know it from the moment you shoulder it.

  2. Brand new 12 gauge waterfowler max-5

    By Bird banger August 02, 2018

    This is got to be one of the most beautiful guns I’ve had the opportunity to try yet ! Before anyone decides to go buy a Bonelli, Browning, Or any other inertia operated shotgun I encourage You to go to your gun shop and pick up to shoulder one of these beautiful Weatherby quality built shotguns at about half the price of any other shotgun today. I’ve done a lot of research before buying this gun I can find no bad reviews on the Internet or in the field.

  3. Great Gun / Great Price

    By KillerElite1212 February 02, 2018

    Had an SA-08 and upgraded to the Element. I am so glad I did. I love this gun and have no complaints. It kills ducks a lot better than the SA-08 did! lol! I would recommend this gun to anyone looking for a good quality, affordable semi-auto.

  4. Everything I wanted and more

    By Skipper June 26, 2017

    For Fathers day my two sons surprised me with this wonderful 12 gauge semi auto. We took it out and ran low brass target loads 1200 fps which ran flawlessly... she throws and tracks better than any Shotgun I've ever had... I am a fan of Weatherby shotguns as of today!!.. only critique is I need a magazine plug for the hunt and would be nice to have some Weatherby decals for my truck and such...

  5. great shotgun!

    By Drd May 28, 2017

    I trust the weatherby name. I grew up watching my Dad shoot and hunt with Weatherby firearms. So it was a no brainer to keep the tradition going. I love hunting Waterfowl with this gun. It is smooth and functions flawlessly.
