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.
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.
