IMO no other words to describe other then OMG Awesome!! Have experience with ML rifles and handguns, picked up a Knight TK2000 shotgun to add to the collection. My other firearms utilize T7 pellets, work great and very convenient. Not available for the shotgun so “stayed” with T7 in powder form FFg. A nice “basic” load of 100 grains T7, 1-7/8 oz of number 5 lead. Sunday was just right temp wise to try out the feel, sights and pattern. Will generally shoot Nitro loads from my auto, so using that for a comparison time to give it a try. ;\) [img]photobucket[/img] Stock out of the box, sights as factory, placed targets at 30 yards to start a base line. The windage was “dead” on, slightly high (left image) 22 in the kill zone. Frankly I expected more smoke, pleasantly surprised not much at all compared to my rifle or pistol using 100 grains. Just “twinked” the elevation and sent a few more. 5th shot (right image) 46 in the “toast zone” called it “good” for the afternoon. May try 2 oz and range out to 40 yards, vast majority of my turkey hunting is in the woods. To sum up, absolutely delighted with the TK2000’s quality/fit finish and performance. Can’t wait to try on a real bird. \:D
If anyone using one any suggestons would be welcome. Thanks.

I loved mine..Killed several birds with it, including one in Iowa. Are you using the 3 1/2" shot cups? I used a duplex load of 5s and 6s....it patterned awesome.

Roost thanks for the note,
Yes to the 3-1/2". Do you mix 5s & 6s, how many ounces? How about charge 100 grains or bump it up a bit? What range are you comfortable with? Seems as if you have experimented with various loads no sense me trying something if not viable. Any thoughts ........

100grs loose 777. Honestly I just mixed the 5s and 6s about 50/50 measured my shot by using the shot cup. I am sure there might be better ways but Tony Smotherman showed me how to do it... This was when he worked for Knight..
It worked great for me. I limited myself to 45yds but it was lethal much further out.
I let a buddy carry it one morning we were hunting together, had 2 gobs come in together but he didn't have a shot so I took one, other bird ran out in field and he smoked him about 60yds.

Btw: your gun looks awesome, mine was black with plain stock.

Thanks for the suggestion Roost,
Going to try a 50/50 mix myself, you worked with it so good enough for me. Did you actually weigh the shot or use a empty wad to establish amount? The TK is one good-looking SG for sure. Not sure about the thumbhole stock when I first picked it up. When we hook up this fall I let you send a couple. Took one round and I’m hooked, it is like holding one of my hand cannons with a stock! Your hand just naturally falls in place, very easy to carry especially in a cradle carry. Now this is NOT a knock but a observation on my part. The stock is a molded product so at the parting line there is a bit of a flash present. No issue to speak of, the line runs down the stock towards the butt and inside the thumbhole. It’s more of a feel then sight, a little dressing with fine sand paper (180/200) and perfect. I’m right brain left brain on a red dot on this or not. I have high end red dots on all of my firearms except my 300 Weatherby. If it weren’t single digits with winds here this morning I would have it out now! \:D

I had an Aimpoint red dot on mine. As a matter of fact I still have the aimpoint and its for sale...I have a few rifles with thumbhole stock I really like them. I have a previous wrist injury so a thumbhole fits me well....I did not weigh my shot just used the shot cup to measure the amount.

Good choice in optics Roost. \:D All of my handcannons have AimPoint 9000SC 2moa scopes. What model and $$$$$. The only reason I have been reluctent to place one on top is that is very little room to install the primer. Not so much in but getting it out.

I had to use the de-capper tool to put primer on and to take off.
