Im looking at a turkey gun for under 200. i would like it to be a pump. what are my options?

I found a Mossberg 500 for 165 but that price kinda scares me for that gun sounds a little fishy. what do yall think

My first turkey gun was a 500 and it will kill them graveyard dead. More expensive doesn't necessarily equal better.

Who knows. Was it the wood version or synthetic? They're not expensive guns new.

Ive painted cheap shotguns for no reason before other than wanted a different color. Your looking for a shotgun for under 200 so thats the stuff your gonna get. Just an average 500 thats been used wont bring much more than that around here. If everything is tight on it get it and paint that thing camo. My dad has an old camo 500 that he has killed lots of turkeys with and still uses it every now and then. They are good guns.

Check out the barrel and action to see how they are. If clean and no rust I think you'd be okay. If you don't like the wood painted black sand it down and restain or camo paint it.

Barrel has a tad bit of rust on the inside at the end
