Weatherby not only makes some of the world’s best bolt-action rifles with the strongest actions possible, but they also produce some tremendous shotguns as well. In fact, they have taken their 18i semi-automatic shotgun and given it some new camouflage patterns and expanded the chamber to a 3″ magnum. Now, you can get the Weatherby 18i Waterfowler 3″ Magnum in a First Lite Cypher, Realtree Max-7, and Mossy Oak Habitat camouflage pattern as well as a traditional black synthetic, too.
