Retay Masai Mara 20ga Turkey XT
« on: May 03, 2021, 12:04:10 PM »
Does anyone have one of these yet?  Opinions? Patterns? Chokes?
Other than not having a pistol grip, it checks off most things I'd want in a new 20ga turkey gun.  I just haven't seen or heard any reviews about them yet.

Pistol grip is coming I know a couple guys that have Retays with a pistol grip I want one as well
To compare it to my Benelli M2 it should be one heck of a shooter and the barrel is 2 inches shorter at 22in choke wise it takes the same threat pattern as Benelli crio system

You have proof positive of Retay turkey XT model with pistol grip? I heard the rumor from Retay in an email I got a week or so ago.

I’d get the 20 gauge in a heartbeat if it had a pistol grip and MO Obsession camo.

I had this gun in my hands last night and was talked out of buying it by three different sales guys at our local gun store.  I couldn't really get any firm answers as to why, other than they keep getting them back in for repairs, and it wasn't anything consistent.  Some not loading properly, some stove piping shells, one gun was sent out brand new unopened with no bolt at all.  Seemed like a variety of issues they've had with them.  I don't know if there was more to it or not, but I've been there several times messing with the Gordion turkey and then the Masai Mara turkey last night, and every different rep that comes over to talk to me seems like "meh, they're ok".   It wasn't like they were trying to sell me anything else, no other guns were mentioned, they just don't seem to like them.

I just ended up getting the Benelli M2.  I'm a big fan of the Benelli's anyway, and own 3 12ga Benelli's now and have never had a single issue ever with them, so there's some comfort level there too.
I'm sure the Retay's are fine guns, it was a tossup for me anyway with the M2, I had been eyeing it for a long time, just finally bit the bullet and bought it.

I second that !!!! I've been looking for one in Obsession but have yet to ever even see one advertised. I love the pattern.

You had the pistol grip version in your hands? Please PM me with the location if that is indeed the case. Thanks!

No, just the standard
