First Look: Weatherby SORIX Shotgun

A look at the new Weatherby SORIX, a semi-auto shotgun available in both 12 gauge and 20 gauge.

While mostly known for its rifles, Weatherby has just expanded its shotgun line with the release of the SORIX. A semi-auto made in Italy and finished at the company’s headquarters in Wyoming, the SORIX line is available in 20-gauge, 12-gauge and with three different finish color options. The 12-gauge model also has the option of either a 3- or 3.5-inch chamber, but all three variants have a 2+1 capacity.

Weatherby SORIX shotguns utilize the same inertia recoil system that has proven itself in some of the company’s previous models, a system that’s known to be simple, reliable and cleaner running than gas-operated semi-autos. The shotguns also feature Weatherby’s SHIFT SYSTEM, a feature that enables users to swap the charging handle and safety to the left-hand side.

Additional features of the Weatherby SORIX that hunters will appreciate include oversized controls and an enlarged trigger guard for easier operation in cold weather, a stock that’s adjustable with shims and a receiver that’s been drilled and tapped (8-40 holes) for an optic mount. For those who don’t want an optic, the SORIX comes standard with LPA fiber optic sights as well. Finally, the shotguns also use the Crio Plus choke system and each gun will ship with five chokes, a choke wrench and a choke carrying case.

All three variants of the Weatherby SORIX are available with either the Midnight Marsh, Slough or Storm finish options, each consisting of a Cerakote job on the receiver, barrel and top rib and a hand-painted stock. All models are available now and share an MSRP of $1,499.
