HAS ANYONE HEARD IF BROWNING IS GOING TO COME OUT WITH A TURKEY VERSION OF IT'S NEW MAXUS 12 GAUGE?

Hey Les,

Have you read the press release at http:allaboutshooting.com/article_info.php?articles_id=245

I plan to discuss a "turkey version" with the Browning folks at the 2009 SHOT Show. It's sure an exciting looking gun.

Thanks,
Clark

Thanks for the replay Clark. Been waiting to buy a new gun. Almost bought a Browning Gold Ultimate Turkey until I saw the video of this gun on Browning's site. Looks like an ideal gun weight wise and I love the features. I hope they come out with maybe a 24" barrel and a good "turkey" camo and choke.

Hey Les,

I have yet to hold one in my hand but plan to "cure" that as soon as possible. On a related subject, I finished a year-long test of the Winchester SX3 recently. I found it to be a great gun. It's well balanced, very quick and light to carry.

I like 26" barrels for most guns but I went with the 28" for my test gun and I'm very pleased that I did. It worked well everywhere that I shot it, from the trap, skeet, sporting fields to goose blinds and the turkey woods. I think that longer barrel also added to its balance.

At any rate, I'll let you know what I find out about a dedicated turkey gun in the Maxus.

Thanks,
Clark
