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.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
