Weatherby Element Shotgun

Weatherby, formerly of California but more recently of Wyoming, is best known for their bolt-action rifles but the company also makes (and imports from Turkey) several assorted series of shotguns.

Their semi-auto line, dubbed the Element, uses a reliable inertia operating system, and features a good fit and finish, earning them a reputation as a decent autoloader. The company announced this week they are expanding the Element series to include Turkey guns finished in Mossy Oak Bottomland camouflage.

Offered in both 12 and 20 gauge with a magnum chamber, they have 22-inch barrels with an extended Full choke. MSRP is $799, which makes it kind of a hard sell against guns like the Mossberg 940 Pro-Turkey which runs about $200 more and has a laundry list of upscale features the Turko-Weatherby does not.
