Weatherby Expands Element Lineup with the new Element Turkey Shotgun

Arriving just in time for the spring turkey hunting season is the latest expansion of the Wetherby Element lineup. Based on the original and time-proven inertia recoil system that the Element uses, the Element Turkey Shotgun adds factory-equipped extended chokes, ventilated and rubberized grips, and a full set of shims for adjusting the drop and cast of the Wetherby Element Turkey’s stock.

The Element Turkey’s factory-equipped choke is an extended Full that is fluted for tool-free removal and installation, while three flush chokes and a choke tube wrench are also included (constrictions Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full). Built to run modern 2 3⁄4” and 3” magnum loads, the Element has front and rear sling studs to enable the quick addition of a sling. A light-gathering fiber optic front sight sits atop its serrated and ventilated rib and rubberized grip panels lend traction in wet conditions. To enable the Element to point naturally for the wide variety of shooters, a full set of shims give the ability to tune the stock’s cast and drop.

The new Weatherby Element Turkey shotguns will be brought to market with an MSRP of $799 making them one of the more affordable dedicated Turkey guns on the market. The 22″ barrel and extended full choke should give Turkey hunters a great out-of-the-box advantage in terms of range and accuracy when it comes to some of the more dicey shots you can take with a turkey shotgun. The Element Turkey is available in 12 or 20 gauge, is chambered for up to 3″ shells, and is available at dealers now. I’d like to hear your thoughts on this new addition to the Element lineup. Is this one worthy of the gun rack during Turkey hunting season or will this be one you’re going to pass up in favor of another Turkey gun?

    I'm disappointed. Since Weatherby rifles are typically chambered in proprietary calibers (.300 Weatherby, for example), I wanted this to be in a special Weatherby 11-1/2 gauge, chambered for 3-3/4-inch shells. Now I'm sad.
