I've killed 2 turkeys this year and was making it number 3 when the barrel blew apart on my 500 mossberg,I can get a new barrel for $200 but have to wait for it to be shipped plus buying a choke for it,so I'm goning to buy a new gun so who is making in everybodys opion the best turkey gun right now? I would also consider selling my mossberg it's a 12ga 500 pump without the barrel it does have camo duck tape on it so if you take the tape off you will have a sticky mess.

If it is just for turkey I'd buy a 935 mossberg.

I had a brand new Remington 11-87 SPS-T that blew apart. I put that junk back in the box, sent it to the manufacturer, and they sent me a brand new one (which I promptly sold). You might see if there's a replacement policy.

There's just so many good options these days but take a look at Oldgobbler.com in the Turkey Guns section...tons of good information there. Good luck with whatever you choose.

mossberg 535 with the waterfowl barrel, not the turkey barrel. the advantage of the 535 is that they are slimmer and liter than the 835's and have a 3.5 pound trigger from the factory- very light. mine came with a waterfowl barrel and turkey barrel. the longer barrel patterned 3x better. if they are inside 55, they are dead

The gun is close to 20 years old if not older,I dont know why the barrel broke.I tried calling mossberg to see if they would make the barrel up but it's 42 minute wait to talk to someone I sent them a E-mail and they havent replied yet. Mike243 I will sale everything but the barrel I dont live far from Lake City or Oliver Springs if your interested in it I would take $75 for it.

Hard to beat a Remington 870 for anything from turkey hunting to small game huning to boat paddling if you have to.

just do a search for Stoeger on this board. More the a few of us use them and they are a HECK of a gun. I have the 2000 and 3500 models and paired with the right choke are up at the top of the list IMO for turkey hunting and duck hunting. Lightweight, super easy to clean and chrome lined barrels.

add a pistol grip stock for under $100 and you have a turkey gun you will LOVE. feel free to PM me with any questions about those models you may have, im happy to answer anything you may need to know about them.
