Other shotguns can’t put a Tom down as efficiently as I can. How you ask? First, I’m completely dressed in Realtree Xtra® Green camo – ideal for the spring turkey woods. My rubberized pistol grip puts the trigger hand in perfect alignment for shooting from a seated position. For fast target acquisition on that red head, my 22” barrel is nimble and delivers its tight charge through an extra-full fluted choke tube. It has a bright green fiber-optic bead for a true aim, but I also have a removable Picatinny rail for a scope. Heard enough?

I’ve had it for 3 years and haven’t had one issue out of it and killed 12 with it, no complaints here.
I've had this shotgun a couple of years. The first year I had it, fired it at the range, took it turkey hunting and immediately had cycling issues. Weatherby was FANTASTIC about bringing it in under warranty. Discovered issue and corrected and shipped back to me. Took it out and got my turkey! Cleaned shotgun and put away in the gun safe. Took out for turkey season this year. First time out and having the same exact issue. Currently en route back to Weatherby....possibly I just got a lemon???? I really like the shotgun size and ease of shooting. Just question the dependability.
sa 459 tr good for turkey hunting
I use a benelli mod choke for my wife. Excellent shotgun for a novice turkey hunter. Weatherby in the manual explains how to use the light load gas cyclinder however only heavy loads will function the semi auto. A great disappointment for an alleged quality shotgun.
SA-459 20 Gauge Turkey Slayer
Acquired the 20 Gauge for Turkey Hunting. As many Turkey Hunters, I shoot Non-Lead Shells. The factory choke is nice for Lead Rounds but, not rated for
Non-Lead Shells. Available selection of 20 Ga Win Chokes is limited vs Mobile
Choke, Invector or others. It would be nice to see this barrel standardized to a more popular choke design and factory standard to handle Heavier than Lead shells. Maybe the gun could come with Lead and Non-Lead Chokes from the factory...? Otherwise, this is a fantastic configuration. Handles well, shoots well and the recoils is quite manageable for youth hunters in 20 Gauge. Great job Weatherby !
BOLT HANDLE PROBLEM
WHEN PATTERNING THIS SHOT GUN, IT PRINTED 6 IN TO THE LEFT AND ABOUT THE SAME LOW. ALSO THE BOLT HANDLE FELL OFF WITH EACH 3 IN. MAG SHOT. I AM CONTACTING WEATHERBY FOR HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM.
