    I'm thinking about trading for a Weatherby Athena III 20 gauge over and under with choke tubes. Just curious if these guns have any inherent problems or a negative reputation that could warrant avoiding the trade.
    The gun is like new with 26” barrels, should work on dove and quail.

    Thanks

    I had an Athena III 12 gauge that was a joy to own and shoot. No issues at all. Made by SKB. I used it for about 12 years, then sold it when I started focusing on trap shooting.

    I have an Athena 12 gauge 28 inch skeet set with briley tubes and case

    It has knockout wood and an adjustable comb and butt

    Now here is the kicker- I have a nearly new single barrel trap that goes with it-

    It has been sitting in my safe- if interested let me know

    Regards from Iowa

    I've got an older Athena trap, ran my first 25 and 50 straight with it, no problems at all,only negative for me is it shoots pretty flat.

    I made the trade, the gun appears unfired in new condition. I think I’ll at least break even (rare for me!) if the gun doesn’t work out.
    Anyone familiar with Weatherby serial numbers? Would like to know what year this model is F0035XX, any ideas or resources? Thanks

    If you don't like it send me some photos. I might take it from you.
    Maybe you can post some pic's of your new toy. John
