Starting to plan on putting together a dedicated turkey gun for next year and I want to equip it with a scope. I do not like red dots and don't want a holographic sight. Any suggestions on a decent scope?
I have a Swift 1.5x4.5 Scope with Circle plus reticle.Kicking this back up to the top to see if anyone has any other suggestions. Got a good feeling that Santa may bring me the gun for Christmas. Don't think that he is bringing a scope though. LOL.
I have to agree, the Simmons Pro Diamond in 1x5 to 5 variable is a good turkey scope for the money 80 to 110 dollars, I have 3 of them, one on my Mossberg 500 20ga and on both of my 835`s, once you get the Turkeys head inside the Diamond, it is over for that bird. With the scope mounted on the breach, I just switch to my slug barrel for 2B Deer and I`m ready to go.Check them out online At my age as well they have made it much easier and the added factor is with a scope you can get a better look at how long his beard is, especially when there are more than one Gobbler approaching. The last 12 Gobblers have fallen to this scope. Good Luck with what ever scope you decide on.....Simmons Pro Diamond cant be beat. Have this on my Winnie 1300 for many yrs and has not failed me yet. :turkey_track:
'I just never cared for them. Also you are dependent on a battery.
I can tell a big difference with open sights the last couple of years. Just hard for me to get a fine bead on something with a shotgun.Years ago I bought a NWTF win model 1300 with no rib and fixed sights.It was a great gun but unfortunately,I ran out of adjust on the rear sight and it shot high.Since the winchesters are drilled and tapped for a scope,I put a decent red dot on it.I hated having that thing on it so I sold the gun.I have a Franchi affinity 20ga that's now the only shotgun I own.I bought a spare 24" barrel for it and put a trulock choke in it and a set of truglo gobble dot open sights.My eyes have really gone down hill over the past few years but it's fine.
