Ithaca deerslayer II ?!

Anyone have the deerslayer II in 20 ga?! Looking for thoughts and input, I want to get a new 20 ga for next year. In looking at the deerslayer II, browning bps deer hunter, browning silver deer hunter, and the Winchester sx3 buck cantilever. I want a fully rifled 20 ga. With at least a 22 inch barrel, I am not interested in the savage 220 I understand they shoot great I just don't like the feel and look of it. Any suggestions, experience, and input will be greatly appreciated

First priority accuracy feel and looks down the line. The Ithaca Deer Slayer was a "Cadillac" in the day. Browning makes a very accurate A bolt but I believe it only comes in 12 ga. at the time.

i think i am going to opt for the deerslayer 3 when the time comes.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

I'm surprised they haven't considering how well the newer 20 gage rounds perform and the popularity of the 220F.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: Ithaca deerslayer II ?!

The A bolt originally came out in the late 90's. I lived and purchased one in IL. Browning stop making them for a few years. They are very accurate when guys at the range saw my groups I was offered $2,000 for mine which was around 3X the purchase price and I did not sell. Now Browning has come back out with this model...I guess it has brought the worth of mine back to reality. But I would still not sell it.. But I would consider buying a 20 ga. model if/when they market it.

Re: Ithaca deerslayer II ?!

I have one. It's been a great gun so far, no problems. Much better fit and finish than the other pump guns I've handled. Shoots well under 2" with Winchester partition golds.

The barrel actually has male pertrusions milled into it that are custom fitted to the underside of the sights. I only removed them because I wanted my scope to sit as low as possible without seeing them in it. They're some of the highest quality fiber optics I've seen. Easy to take off.
