SA Loads



Unique Dual Valve System

Regardless of what you’ve heard, it’s always been difficult to get a single valve system to effectively cycle everything from ¾ oz. through heavy 3" magnum loads. Our SA-08™ is specially-designed with a unique dual valve system that lets you quickly change the valve to adjust for different loads, species or seasons. The valves are easily accessible and slide on and off in an instant. A key benefit of this dual valve system is how it manages recoil and reduces it compared to single valve shotguns. With its simple design, the SA-08™ is also one of the easiest semi-autos to clean—a critical component for dependable performance in the field. Put simply, the SA-08™ is the most versatile autoloader you can carry and a real joy to shoot (see chart below for valve/load recommendations).
