Weatherby Wins Prestigious Golden Bullseye Award

Weatherby wins the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Award for the SA-08 Deluxe 28-Gauge shotgun, as the 2014 American Rifleman Shotgun of the Year.

Weatherby’s SA-08 Deluxe 28 Gauge semi-auto shotgun has earned an NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Award as the 2014 American Rifleman Shotgun of the Year.

Golden Bullseye Awards recognize the finest shooting sports products, as determined by a committee including NRA Publications editors and other staff. Criteria include reliability in the field, innovative design and function, value to the purchaser, and styling that befits hunting and shooting enthusiasts.

“We greatly appreciate this recognition by the NRA and its industry-leading magazine,” said Mike Schwiebert, Weatherby’s vice president, marketing. “The editorial staff of American Rifleman has a wealth of experience and expertise. We have the highest respect for their knowledge and opinions, and are extremely proud that they have acknowledged the field-proven reliability and performance of our SA-08 Deluxe 28 Gauge.”

Introduced in 2013, the SA-08 Deluxe 28 Gauge shotgun offers bird hunters light recoil, reliable performance and a distinctly handsome look. It features a specially-designed, scaled-down frame to fit 28-gauge shells. Weighing approximately 5.5 pounds, the shotgun is available with a 26- or 28-inch barrel and 2 ¾-inch chamber.

The SA-08 Deluxe 28 Gauge sports a select-grade walnut stock with precision-cut checkering (22 LPI) for a positive, responsive feel. A high-gloss finish on the stock and metalwork adds to the shotgun’s eye-catching appearance.
