Does anyone know if they make or where I can find a magazine extension for my SA-08? I'm considering using mine for 3 Gun Competitions.

What capacity are you looking for ?  Choate extensions may be able to be refitted to the SA-08 by a good gunsmith.  It's an option you might look into.  I'm a littlle weird on the SA-08 for plate type competition for a couple reasons it hasn't been around long enough and  gucci enhanced parts aren't available.  If you want to compete find out what the top guy's are using and go from there.  Rem 1100/11-87's, Benelli's are all good platforms. My 1100 is set up as an 11 shooter and can be made into a 14 shot if I were to shorten the shells. The Rem is easier on the shoulder than most Benelli's but they seem to cycle faster. Both are absolutely reliable.  It's really not that expensive to set-up a nice Rem if you find a good used one and go from there on the build even if you go into extended charging handle, speed chutes, sights, compensators,  etc.    Forget the pumps on pure speed shoots not at the top levels.  Rem 1100 TAC 4 might not be a bad way to go depending on how many engaged targets. and how the course is set up.      Ron

That is interesting...

I hope it's a joke like it looks.

Beers,

Anyhow, If you look at the end of the Magazine tube on your SA-08 you will notice that the end of the tube is crimped inward, I believe this will make it difficult to add a functional magazine extension. I've seen other companies that sell shotguns built on a similar platform to the Weatherby's and their tactical models come with extensions BUT, they are described as a "Faux extension" with no change in capacity. I guess they think some people want to "Look" like they have a magazine extension, maybe magazine extensions scare the bad guys??? It's a stupid idea to me, if I'm gonna have something on my gun it had better work or it's coming off. I don't even put a sling on my firearms, don't want it there cause I might use it and it gets in the way if I'm not using it.

Cheers and from what I can tell so far on this Forum; Ron does not suck.

I have been called a lot of things and JA and DB are probably two of the nicer ones.  The short answer would have been NO.  I know of no mag extensions for the SA-08 and you might want to call Weatherby and see what their opinions are ?
 
My point to Beers was if you want to play the game you have to know the rules.
Which under USPSA means open class 10 + 1  rounds and Tactical class 8 + 1 rounds depending on stage. Of course there are other matches and requirements may be different.  There may be better options before someone starts dropping a lot of money in modifications in an SA-08 that may or may not be able to be undone easily.    RS the guy's  here as a rule try and help everyone we can the best we can, and if that means throwing something out there for food for thought I consider that a good thing.

I don't mind having heated discussions that is not a bad thing, but when it comes to name calling I will draw the line.    Ron

Roger :  The funny part is I didn't even mention Chokes it was Choate Extensions. I probably should had been more specific and said Choate shotgun magazine extentions.   Ron

I think his username has given everyone a clue to his time spent in grade school? As the old saying goes you can't fix stupid or was that stupid is as stupid does? Maybe their will not be a post #2 with an attitude such as his?http://www.weatherby.com/support/faq/latest/items

WOW, I just read this thread now. WTF! who was that guy?
Sticks and stones, holy moly grade three all over again. Maybe we can get Ellen and Oprah on board to help stop the bullying. ( now that was a joke ). Ron I hope your deep emotional scars heal soon, nothing hurts like the toothless bite of a ronsucks from his keyboard in his mothers basement.

Happy new year,

the best suggestion is to appear there personally not on phone and discuss your matter with them.... when you will physically bargain to them instead of phone, that will put a different and much strong impression on them and one of my friend has said it and done it too.. that is why I am sharing this advice to you as well... thanksactualtests JK0-015 | actualtests HP0-S25 | actualtests 642-359 | actualtests C-TFIN22-64

I'm taking a gun smith course and in my mind it should be fairly easy to do, buy another magazine, end cap,spring and have the cap cut to be the lock to put the 2 magazines together and cut and thread the other end so it will be the correct inside diameter and make sure the forearm of the shotgun is held in place. Now it should be just adding and securing 2 springs together so as to be the correct tension for the addition. I believe this may be the way to get the extension thats how the gunsmiths of old would have done it. A good gunsmith would like this type of challenge.

They would probably have to be built in the USA to be 922 r compliant! that is probably why ATA and Weatherby do not import accessories but only a guess? Roll Eyeshttp://www.weatherby.com/support/faq/latest/items
