Paso Robles, CA – -( Launched May 15, the sweepstakes promotes Weatherby’s new SA-08 Synthetic with retail prices starting as low as only $449. The sweepstakes ends January 15, 2010. A random drawing will then be conducted and 20 winners announced March 1. Each will receive a SA-08 Synthetic.

To enter the sweepstakes, go to, and complete and submit the registration form. Entrants must be a legal resident of the U.S., 21 years of age or older on date of entry, and legally qualified to possess a firearm. Internet access is also a requirement.

“Even if you don’t win, you can’t go wrong with our SA-08 Synthetic,” said Brad Ruddell, Weatherby’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Pick one up and you’ll immediately notice the trim feel and light weight, not to mention the great value afforded by the $449 price tag.”

The SA-08 Synthetic is available in either 12 or 20 gauge with 26- or 28-inch barrels. There is also a youth model with a 12 ½-inch length of pull and 24-inch barrel. All SA-08 models feature the proven dual-valve system that allows shooters to quickly adapt the shotgun to accommodate the widest load ranges. The dual-valve system also manages recoil and reduces it as compared to traditional single-valve shotguns.

A black composite stock helps reduce weight and enhance durability. The shotgun’s alloy receiver further reduces weight and improves overall balance. The 12-gauge model weighs a light 6 1/2 pounds, and the 20-gauge model is even lighter at six pounds. The youth model also weighs in at six pounds.

Other key features of the SA-08 Synthetic:

  • receiver includes a unique drop-out trigger system which can be removed and reassembled quickly for easy cleaning.
  • chrome-lined barrels can withstand years of high-volume shooting and reduce the effort necessary to keep the barrel clean.
  • barrels have lengthened forcing cones for improved patterns and less shooter fatigue.
  • screw-in Integral Multi-Choke System is compatible with the Briley® thread
  • pattern—the shotgun comes with Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full choke tubes that allow shooters to tailor their shot patterns for specific hunting applications
