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?

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.
I like the turkey gun, but they need to offer a rifled slug barrel and it would be perfect.
Best value for a shotgun in 60 years!
I have used most all shotguns and until now, have always gone with the Brownings'. This little turkey gun does not beat you up, so far, patterns all mfg's loads I have fired, very well. Good, tight patterns. I am not a big person, and I expected muzzle jump due to the short barrel. It has no more muzzle rise than any other I have used. The 20 ga. SA-08 is a joy to shoot also.
Skeet and trap shooting are fun again.
