No bites?... Doing a little research, this gun just came out this year. If I don't buy this in the near future, it is definitely on the short list. Very good fit and finish.
Hey, RKB,It is so sad to see names that used to be top-of-the-line guns like Weatherby being bought out and used to import pure crap to be sold at the cheapest price point, and used to suck in people who read the bullshit reviews by paid hacks, and get sucked into buying because they have heard the great old name on the guns. With shotguns, you almost always get what you pay for.
Roy Weatherby is likely turning over in his grave.
I sincerely hope you have better luck with yours, Twistofer - sometimes it happens!
same story with Charles Daly. Used to bring in high quality stuff but went to crap over the years.Weatherby never made anything; he always had his name put on guns, same as Churchill. Back in the older days, they used top-tier gun makers; now it is all about the price point, mass production and max profit. Not that profit is a bad thing; but when you cut too many corners, it does come back to bite you
You get what you pay for. You want a really cheap gun, you buy one, and....you get a really cheap gun! Sad to say, but there it is. Buy once, cry once, and get a quality gun. You will not regret it.Weatherby had quite a problem with their Turkish made auto-loaders. The bolts fractured and there are no replacements. I have one that was given to me. Why do bolts fracture?
Substandard understanding of Metallurgy. Be careful and do your research!
