What’s everyone had luck with for a bottom to mid level price 20ga shooting TSS? Would love to get an M2 but probably out of the price range as of now. Any other recommendations? Thanks!

It’s hard to beat an 870 for the price. You can pick up one all day long for $300 at Walmart.

I have been shooting an 870 youth for about 15 years. Hard to get any better. I am 6ft and 280 lbs......but don't make fun of my red ridea 20 ga. It's a killer.

.....and last year Remington ran a nice rebate for the 870s about this time of year. Be on the lookout for it in the coming weeks, they could do it again.

Not in the same class as a M2, but for much more economical inertia driven auto 20 gauge, look at the franchi affinity. I've seen several made into turkey guns. That would be a good option if you also wanted to use it for wing shooting. But for a pure turkey gun, I too would vote for the 870.

If I was starting over and looking for a semi auto 20ga turkey gun I'd grab a weatherby sa-459

I've been shooting TSS #9's thru a Franchi Affinity 20 gauge for the last 2 seasons and I love it.

This. I bought one last year around this same time. The wood stock 870 youth was $289 plus tax minus the $50 rebate at Wal-Mart. I ended up with the full camo compact for a few dollars more. Wal-Mart was cheaper than anywhere that I could find online including tax.

Yildiz over/under from academy. Then you have a short range and a long range barrel

My short range (0 to 25) barrel has a light modified choke shooting 2 3/4 7.5 Golden pheasant
Long range has an extra full shooting hevi 13

2 of the 3 I've killed with it was with the short range barrel

Mosseberg SA 20 turkey thug! This gun is light and throws a great pattern with the Carlson's .575 non ported. The gun no longer is called "thug" just simply SA 20 turkey. I really like this gun and the way it performs.

The over/under turkey gun is a great idea in theory. But you have to be careful/lucky because many of the less expensive over/unders may have two barrels that shoot slightly different poi. I tried it with a 12 gauge a few years back. At 30 yards, there was 4-5 inches difference between the two barrels. I killed a few with it but it always bothered me so I sold it after a couple seasons.

Why I've always stayed away from them as turkey guns. Great if they work but I've shot a lot of sub $1000 doubles and it's a crap shoot getting one that both barrels shoot the same

Not but have read that since they've changed hands that they have very very few problems now.
