Two weeks later nada but they are moving to a new location so I’ll give it a couple more days

Since I did not have any more turkey permits, I traveled with a friend to the NRA Convention. Met some important people there including President Adam Weatherby of Weatherby Arms. We discussed the Weatherby SA459 xtra Green Turkey Gun. Met the technical Staff at Weatherby and discussed bolt handle.

So what did they say about the bolt handle?...are they addressing the issue?...so they have a plan?

Adam acknowledged the problem and said they thought they got a bad batch of handles,and that they would work on a solution to the problem. Call technical support and talk with them.

Hunted and killed 3 birds in  Missouri with mine. I shot one and the boy shot two. First shot was fine, second shot glad I had the fishing line attached to it. Bolt handle did come out, put a dab of super glue on the bolt handle and slid it back in. Third shot it was fine.  Will be calling and chatting with someone about this issue.

I haven't had that issue in my 459 or my SA08s. Have any of you tried a SA08 handle in the 459? It seems with the smaller handle it may stay.

I also got a sa-08 handle from numeric gun parts it fits good I think I’m gonna use it and keep the tactical handle for a back up
