Weatherby enters the slug gun market with a bang, offering the new PA-08™ Slug Gun Combo for your deer hunting and upland game needs. The PA-08 comes with two interchangeable barrels, a 24-inch rifled barrel for slugs and a 28-inch field barrel for shotshells.
The PA-08 is only offered in 12 gauge, with two models available: the Upland, which sports a walnut stock with gloss finish, and the Synthetic, which has a lightweight and durable injection-molded black synthetic stock.
The eight-groove rifled barrel has a 1-28" twist rate, with a bore diameter of .718 and groove diameter of .728. It comes with a Weaver-compatible cantilever scope mount base for big game hunters who like optics.
The 28-inch field barrel has chrome lining to withstand years of high-volume shooting. Lengthened forcing cones help reduce felt recoil, while a vented top rib dissipates heat and helps facilitate target acquisition.
There is a brass bead front sight and it also comes with three application-specific choke tubes: Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full.
The PA-08 comes with all these features while remaining reasonably priced! The MSRP is $549 for the Upland model and $499 for the Synthetic.
