I recently purchased at Weatherby PA459 Tactical shotgun. I got mine in the "ghost camo", or also Ive heared it referred to as the "skull camo"... the stock and foregrip have a black/grey/white skull pattern on them, which IMHO is pretty cool looking.

What first impressed me with this shotgun was the really light weight. But I thought to myself, recoil with heavier loads will be a pain... but it was quite the opposite. The pistol grip, which normally I am NOT a big fan of, gave this weapon excellent handling properties, and control. Here are a few statistics from the Weatherby webiste.

The Weatherby® PA459 Skull TR 12 Gauge Pump-Action Shotgun offers 4-round (3") or 5-round (2.75") capacity and features an ergonomic, pistol grip-style buttstock with a rubber textured grip area and a TWN Industries Reaper Black™ 3-D pattern on the stock and fore-end components. The shotgun has a blade front sight with a fiber-optic pin and a clamp-style LPA ghost ring rear sight.

Features and Benefits
•Pump action with 4-round (3") or 5-round (2.75") capacity
•Barrel is fitted with a 0.810" extended and ported cylinder choke tube
•Ergonomic, pistol grip-style buttstock with a rubber textured grip area
•TWN Industries Reaper Black™ 3-D pattern on the stock and fore-end components
•Integral Picatinny rail on the fore-end
•Blade front sight with a fiber-optic pin
•Clamp-style LPA ghost ring rear sight
•Drilled, tapped and installed mil-spec Picatinny rail

After putting nearly 100 rounds through this shotgun with zero malfunctions, I have to say I am IMPRESSED.... I'd stand this shotty up against my Remmy 870 or my Mossy 500 any day of the week.

For those not interested in the Skull pattern, it is of course also available in plain black as well.
