Weatherby SAS Field 12 Gauge

We think this is a very shootable gun, still good-looking in a traditional sense, and on the economical side in this category. Can't ask for much more.

We loved the large safety positioned to the rear of the trigger guard on the Weatherby. The magazine cut-off is the serrated dial near the front of the trigger guard (arrow). While it works well, it's small and hard to operate with a gloved hand. The two pins above the trigger guard allow the trigger assembly to be removed for cleaning, a nice feature on a waterfowl gun.
Wood-to-metal fit on this gun is tight, as can be seen where the buttstock meets the receiver. There are no rough edges or overhangs, nothing unfinished that caught our eye.
The stippled magazine cap on the Weatherby SAS is low profile and easy to remove. The SAS is thicker through the belly of the forend and around the wrist than the other two, but not to a degree that those of us with smaller hands had to fish around for a comfortable hand position.
