Weatherby has never answered my phone messages or emails, so here I am needing help.
I'm an 80yr old Vet trying to stay in the game, please help.

My shotgun is used so I didn't get 2 gas pistons with it, also the retainer to hold spring in ammo tube was damaged, I was able to order another from Numerich Arms.

Numerirh didn't have the gas piston I need, where can I purchase one for my 12GA?
Ben.

Finally got through to Weatherby they have their hands full with moving from Kalifornia to Wyoming.
They no longer make parts for the SAS.
As a machinist by trade, I found the problem with the tight magazine cap going on or off.
The end of the tube was damaged (previous owner probably prying out the retainer) and that it is now out of round.
I need to have the magazine tube replaced, I really like this shotgun, don't know where I can get the help to continue with this gun.
Do any of you have idea's, so I can continue to shoot this gun and enjoy my final days?
Thank you,
Ben.
