What is it about wings that gets our hearts beating like they do? I live for the sound. Whether it’s the thunder of a Ruffed Grouse flushing, or the whistle of Goldeneyes buzzing the dekes, or the howl of Mallards on set wings slicing through a head wind and sounding like an F15 at mach-10. My job is to intercept them by fitting you like I’m an extension of yourself; to cycle shells with 100% inertia-operated dependability; and to look good doing it.

    Purchased this shotgun last week and had it in the woods today quail hunting behind some amazing Carolina setters. I own numerous shotguns including a very expensive weatherby o/u 12gauge. This gun shot flawlessly. I was reaching out and hitting birds at 50/60 yards no problem. It is such a light gun and cycles shot great. For the price I don’t think you’ll find a better shotgun with it being light weight, accurate, and overall just fun to shoot.

    Just bought the Element and I am very impressed. So I just sold a Stoeger Over/Under and I can’t believe the difference in accauracy and in handling. Wow was this the right decision. So happy. So accurate. So light. And I got the deluxe model and it looks really sharp. Have had zero issues with cycling 2 3/4″ shells with 1 ounce #8. One word here…… Impressed

    this is a great gun that I bought just bird hunt with , however its good for everything I have shot in it, low brass shells, and even buckshot. So far 3 yrs in and not a single jam… it was a great purchase and I might even order my teenage son one now!

    The Element Deluxe is a gorgeous gun right out of the box. Top Notch job on the Grade ‘AA’ Walnut. I wanted my next Upland gun to be lighter, have the classic ‘wood grain’ upland look, and be inertia operated. This gun shoulders smoothly and cycles rounds flawlessly. The Inertia driven system is so simple, anyone with basic (or none at all) gun knowledge could clean this gun and easily put it back together (there’s literally 3 parts – Barrel, forearm and trigger assembly). For the price, you can’t go wrong with all this gun offers – I’d put the Element Deluxe up against a Benelli or Beretta any day. A+ Weatherby

    I sold a Benelli super black eagle to a friend some years back, mainly because it was very well used and I hardly used it anymore due to going to clay sports more than hunting. And I wanted more room in my gun cabinet. Just this year I changed my mind and decided I wanted a hunting & sporting clay gun. I chose the Weatherby Element Deluxe? Why? It’s a very simple inertia gun. I didn’t want all that “business” up in the stock like a Benelli. I don’t like how the inertia spring for the Stoeger and Franchi autos are in the breech. And I didn’t want to pay Benelli Montefeltro money. By the way I did a lot of research and concluded that this gun (to me) is a better looking gun. Lo and behold — Just like my old Benelli, when I received this gun, I put the shim in for increased drop, shouldered it, and it fit pretty much exactly the same as my old gun. I shot it this weekend – 1st time I had shot trap in years, shot two rounds with it and shot a pair of 19’s. Basically it fits like a glove, looks fantastic, and I took it apart to clean it and the quality seems very equivalent to a benelli. Some people complain about the polymer trigger housing (as opposed to metal) and the “weird shape” of the safety. I am not sure it matters. The safety worked fine for me and the trigger housing is not flimsy by any means. People prefer pistols made out of polymer these days – so I’m not sure what the big deal is. Anyway, I’m very impressed with this gun and look forward to using it for many years. It looks so good in my gun case and feels as good to shoot as any auto I have ever had. Thanks, Weatherby.

    This is my first shotgun, I waited many years to finally buy a shotgun because of recoil and ease of use. I am so glad my first shotgun was a Weatherby, the gun is easy to load, aims true and the recoil on skeet loads is minimal. I took my wife to the range today and she put 15 rounds through the gun and wanted to keep shooting. I am sure I will have many years of great shooting and be able to pass the Weatherby Element down to my son. I was lucky to get the right gun on first try. Hope you have as much fun with your shotgun!

    I purchased the Element Deluxe when it first came out. It functions flawlessly. I have put over 3000 shells through the gun without a malfunction. It is definitely my favorite shotgun to hunt upland birds with. It’s a very light and overall a beautiful shotgun. This is my first Weatherby and I’m throughally impressed. I was skeptical of the price and considered purchasing a “higher dollar” shotgun, but after seeing and handling the Element in store I was hooked. This gun is truly in a class of its own!!! Thanks for a great and reliable product!!!

    I own a few autoloaders from Browning, Beretta & Benelli. All of them wood. After getting submerged in flooded timber on a Colorado duck hunt last year, I decided I needed a plastic workhorse shotgun. I got the Max 5 Camo.

    I researched this gun heavily and it does not disappoint. From light 7/8th oz loads on the skeet field to 3″ Magnums, it chews through everything like a Glock pistol. So far I’ve been through 10 flats without so much as a cleaning. No jams and works as well or better than anything I own.

    I recommend Element without reservation.

    I bought the Element Waterfowler in Max 5 Camo. I Hunted with it a couple of times and shot sporting clays as well. Cycles flawlessly and never had any kind of Operational problem. Its a Inertia gun so be ready for a hard recoil when shooting heavy Waterfowl loads!

  10. Dave Element

    Best semi-auto 12 gauge in this price range ($650-$750)! Wood grade is exquisite – action clean and smooth!

  11. DB5568

    I’ve owned just about every brand on the market(I’m one of those guys) and this gun is a great value… I’m not going to claim it’s the best gun I own or have shot because it isn’t… But it is a very light, fast, and slick semi auto for $600(synthetic/blk) it pulls fast, it’s finish is true to Weatherby’s nature… Clean and tight. Cycles well with everything I’ve run through it… Honestly, everything down to its internalsare nearly identical to a Benelli Montefeltro… At 75% the price. Would recommend to anyone!

  12. Maui Joe

    Bought an SA-08 compact synthetic for my wife in .20 gage and she loves it ! So we just ordered the Element Deluxe. The Action on these guns are very smooth and easier to load than any other semi on the market today.
