Knight TK2000

Postby WillowRidgeCalls » October 17th, 2012, 11:16 am

Is anyone shooting a Knight TK2000 for turkeys?
I'm thinking about getting one with the thumhole stock and a Rem. choke tube.
Just wondering if anyone is shooting one and how they like it?

I did not know they took RemChokes. I thought they used a choke tube that made it a Jug Choke.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey

It looks like a jug cut barrel that squeezes the shot back down into the choke tube. It looks like the jug is about an inch back in the barrel. They use a Rem. thread on their chokes.

I believe that Larry Lombard shoots one of those guns. He's here every now and then. He's a great guy, set the NWTF World Record with ML guns a few years ago, has a lot of experience with ML guns and I'm sure could be of help to you. I can give him a shout and see if he can be of help to you.

Thanks,
Clark

You're welcome. I sent Larry an email, so maybe he'll pop up here in a bit. He's a real expert on those ML guns.

Thanks,
Clark

Thanks Larry. That is about what I figured for a starting point. I had planed on starting with 85 grn of No. 7 and a 3" wad with 1-1/2 oz of 5 shot and work with a powder and shot charge out of the extra full choke that comes with them. I can see where the hvy shot would improve the performance out of them and range.

Thanks Larry. I know you've been shooting those guns for a long time and know a lot about them.

Thanks again,
