Paso Robles, CA –-(  With the two interchangeable barrels of Weatherby’s® new PA-08™ Slug Gun Combo, hunters can pursue both whitetail deer in the hardwoods and pheasants in the CRP.

The PA-08 Slug Gun Combo is available in two models: the Upland which sports a walnut stock with a gloss finish and the Synthetic which has a lightweight and durable injection-molded black synthetic stock. Both come in 12 gauge with a 24-inch rifled barrel for slug ammunition and a 28-inch field barrel for birdshot shells. Regardless of application, the PA-08 Combo is designed to provide hunters with a commonly affordable gun that can be counted on for years of high-volume shooting.

“Our new Slug Gun Combo offers all the quality, performance, and value of our field-tested PA-08 shotgun,” said Mike Schwiebert, Weatherby’s marketing manager. “With the versatility of interchangeable barrels, it is a true workhorse for all seasons. Hunters will also appreciate the choice of wood or synthetic stock to suit their personal preference.”

The eight-groove rifled barrel has a 1-28″ twist rate, with a bore diameter of .718 and groove diameter of .728. It comes with a Weaver-compatible cantilever scope mount base for big game hunters who utilize optics.

The 28-inch field barrel has chrome lining to withstand years of high-volume shooting.  Lengthened forcing cones help reduce felt recoil.  A vented top rib dissipates heat and helps facilitate target acquisition, as does the brass bead front sight.

Three application-specific choke tubes (Improved Cylinder, Modified, and Full) come with the field barrel. The screw-in Integral Multi-Choke System is compatible with the Briley® thread pattern and allows bird hunters and target shooters to tailor their shot patterns according to need.

All metalwork for both models of the PA-08 Slug Gun Combo is matte black to reduce glare. Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum alloys to reduce overall weight without compromising strength, the CNC-machined receiver is designed to improve the balance of the shotgun for better handling. A chrome-plated bolt helps prevent the action from binding and eases operation. The drop-out trigger system can be quickly removed for easy cleaning and reassembled.

The PA-08 Slug Gun Combo has a three-inch chamber and weighs approximately 7.25 pounds. Swivel studs are included. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $549 for the Upland model and $499 for the Synthetic.

I have a new Weatherby PA 08 slug gun combo. I have a scope mounted on the rifle barrel. Can you tell me what is the best Sabot slug brand I should use. I tried to site the gun and it was all over the place. I was using Remington slugs. Someone told me that this could make a difference.
