The 28-gauge SA-08 shotguns are slightly different from the 12-gauge and 20-gauge models. There was nothing fancy about the gas system, but the piston was marked for light loads.
The Weatherby SA-08 buttpad was fit with a plastic cap on the heel to shield the soft rubber from catching on your clothing during the mount. The glossy walnut finish turned out to be durable as well as handsome.
The SA-08 looks like a full-size 12 gauge due to its glossy walnut stock, deep blue-steel receiver, and 28-inch barrel.
