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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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...

  4. great shotgun!

    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.

  5. Max Indeed

    By Spence February 01, 2017

    I purchased my Max 5 and took it duck hunting in SEMO without putting a single shell through it first. I know better but that's how things worked out. 3 days of hunting - 4 boxes of shells later and i was all smiles. It held its own against some Benelli's in my group with one exception. While they had bruised shoulders from shooting equivalent amounts of 3 1/2 inch shells my shoulder felt the same as it did when we arrived. All of us shot Blackcloud. Most impressive of all was how clean it was when I ran a patch through it.
    It excells at everything and I will put this shotgun head to head against any brand. Couldn't be prouder of happier with this purchase. Well done Weatherby. Well done.
