SA-08 Quality issues

SA-08 Quality issues
« on: October 06, 2018, 08:22:46 AM »
Recently purchased a SA-08, my first Weatherby, in 20ga.  Out of the box it would not function. The lifter was dragging against the interior receiver, marring the finish.
Has anyone else experienced this type of quality issue from Weatherby? 
I had expected much better performance and service considering Weatherby's reputation and history.  It was obvious this shotgun was not inspected prior to departure from the factory. Shipped it back for inspection, haven't yet heard the results.

I've had my SA-08 for 3 years now - only issue to date is the rear stock nut keeps loosening up. after about 100 rounds of trap. They sent me a new nut and I finally used locktite, will know soon if that is the ticket

We have two of them. This happened with only one, and a dab of loctite did the trick. No more problems.
