ultimate slug gun?

13 posts in this topic

So, I have been looking online at guns, hoping for a new cantelever slug barrel for a great price. Not finding that, I started searcing for what i feel would be the perfect slug gun: a 20 ga. lever action rifled slug gun. I know there are 410's out there and the 12 ga. cowboy action models. But I feel a 20 ga. lever action would be a great deer hunting shotgun.

what do you think?

Why lever action over a pump, auto or bolt?

forend never moves forward and back on you like a pump, and John Wayne used to carry a lever action. I know my reasons aren't good and my 870 is pretty accurate but I think a lever action would be great.

I bought a Mossberg 500 20 guage with a cantalievered rifled barrel that came with a scope and a vent rib bird barrel for around $250 last fall. I shoot Hornady SST 250 grain sabots that have 1800fps and this combo gives me 3" groups at 100 yards!

It's a real tack driver! grin

Ultimate slug gun???

Using a little imagination....How about a side by side, 10 gauge on one side with iron sights and a 20 gauge on the other side with a scope.

I have no idea if it could ever work, but it would be unique.

I have numerous slug guns.

1-Mossberg 500 with a rifled hastings barrel

2-Remington 870 with a rifled Hastings barrel

3-Remington 1100 with a rifled Hastings barrel

4-Remington 1187 " " " " "

I like the 1100 the best for acuracy. The Mossbery may be #2. I do not slug hunt anymore. benn 15+ years since I have used one.

A lever action 12ga slug gun would be interesting for sure.

I already owned an 870 Remington so I purchased a cantilever Mossberg barrel and put a scope on that. It too has been a nail driver. The Mossberg barrel was about half the price of a Hastings or Remington cantilever.

I know what you mean, I've been looking for a barrel for my Browning Gold and the cheapest barrel I've found so far is just under $400.

Seen an ad today for a Savage Bolt-action 20ga slug gun. Looks really nice. Built on the same action as their rifles except uses the 20ga. chamber.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
