The Sawn-Off Shotgun is a weapon in the Shotguns class featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The design of the Sawn-Off Shotgun in GTA San Andreas is based on a real life Colt Model 1883 Hammerless Shotgun.

This weapon also appears in Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Sawn-Off Shotgun Description:

The small size of the sawn-off shotgun allows running and gunning. A lenghty reload follows an extremely strong burst of bullets, so make sure to make your shot count!

This weapon has three Skill Levels you can progress through: Poor, Gangster and Hitman. Reaching the Hitman level with the Sawn-Off Shotgun allows you to Dual Wield, effectively doubling firepower, increases the lock-on range, and allows you to fire while moving.

It becomes available after completing the mission Doberman in Story Mode.
