My new turkey whacker

Recommended Posts

A limb saver recoil pad was added to daughters youth 870 20. Doesn’t but add maybe 2” but worth the shock absorbtion 

That’s the same thing I did for my youth 870, slip on pad and it fits me like a glove. If the new one works out I’ll feel bad leaving that 870 at home but the mossberg is a about 2lbs lighter 3.5”’s shorter.

This video is far from scientific but backs up what I have found in my testing as well. I just wish I didn’t live in a communist state and could own a shotgun with a 14” barrel.

I run one with 8s in TSS, but i forgot you get pretty close to your birds and dont have a need for that stuff. But they are a fun little gun to tote, they do kick pretty good still being so light and a recoil pad that aint worth much.. but real fun to tote!

Finally got all the pieces put together on my new toy and today was range day. e53ded8a156c04b24f6a2ab36644a252.jpgMy goal for this gun was to be a compromise gun not set up just for the short game like all my others because this year I have 2 guys that I’m trying to get on their first bird so I wanted a gun set up to be able call one in with. Im very happy with it. Under 6lb’s and 45yd capable for a 20ga. ff7a607ba39fdd412a52f40ca2d0fcf4.jpga5903a996cb146928ac584f1afa295f8.jpg

Interesting video showing velocity vs barrel length.  Not much difference.
 

Every shell I shot yesterday was over a crono and every shot was within 38fps of advertised velocity.

Shotgun barrel lengths vary for balance and swing not “accuracy” or velocity.

I’m not yet sold on the stock, it’s heavier than it needs to be and I don’t like the long reach to the safety. I have a full length standard stock on the way so we will see. Originally my plan was to put a slip on butt pad on the factory youth stock but with 2 recoil pads it gave it a very awkward spongy feel when shouldered.

Didnt even think of that, Yea that is a reach, and a bit to get used to, especially in the heat of the moment. ItsNot like having the ease of a safety on a triggger guard, where your hand already is lol.  My 535 is a thumbhole, i just hit the safe with my pointer finger, it is a bit of a reach though.

If you chose to sell the tactical stock, let me know

Im the exact opposite, I plan to hunt with a new 870 youth i put together this year. Im used to the mossberg safety, not the trigger guard safetys..
