Escort 20ga turkey????
« on: August 16, 2021, 01:15:51 PM »
I was at local gun shop where I saw an Escort 20ga turkey gun in bottomland camo I believe had 22” barrel. Had adjustable sights with a cantilever mount attached to barrel. Does anyone have one and what’s your opinion.

I just bought Escort Auto in Bottomland 410 have not shot it yet. I just got x full Jeb's choke 381 for it also.. The 20 ga and 410 looked really good ..

A friend of mine has one in a 12. Runs flawless, shoots straight.

Took gun out today to test out. Put FF2 on got it sighted in with bird shot. Emailed Hatsan factory turkey choke .565. No 20ga TSS on hand. Shot Winchester Supreme 1 1/8 oz 3” #5’s. Shot at 30yds got 110 in 10. Got 16 pellets in spine on turkey target from Missouri Conservation Dept. website on 11”x17” paper.  Swabbed barrel between shots. Good even pattern. Gun worked great. Choke stayed tight. Barrel nice and shiny.

Thanks I’m very happy with gun. Trigger needs a little work to take up slack. Crisp it up some. Ill get some TSS soon to try. I believe stock choke should be good. Firing pin really hammers the primers. I would have tested farther out but started raining.

Apex 3” 1 5/8 oz #9’s came in yesterday. Today I sent one round down range to 40yds. 275 in 10. 30 in spine and head. Core is what I consider hot. Same impact as my lead Winchester loads. Load carried a kick. Gun is light. Charge was dirty. One very happy camper here. I would recommend this gun with stock choke.
