Weatherby Inc. announced a recall of certain SA-08 28 gauge shotguns due to reports of accidental discharges. According to the company, some customers have reported the gun will fire when the bolt closes and chambers a live shot shell. Obviously, this is a problem.

Weatherby states the affected guns are the 28 gauge models with a serial number ranging from AN00001 to AN02802. Weatherby encourages anyone with one of these guns to cease use of it immediately and contact them for repair information.

      I own a PA-08, it works just fine. The only potential problem is the lack of aftermarked parts if you are into that kind of thing.
      I havnt tried their semi-autos, but their rifles are rebranded Howa, and they have a stellar reputation themselves.
