WTB Turkey gun or help me figure this out....

Recommended Posts

Hi,

currently, I have a M2 Field with 28" barrel in bottomland and a HK super 90 tactical. I'm taking my son deer hunting at the end of the month and my buddy told me to bring a shotgun that can shoot slugs; he added that the area gets dark quickly due to tree canopy cover and that I should have a red dot or a scope.

 

I don't want to drill into the M2 so here's my options as I see them:

1. Buy a dedicated turkey gun that comes with a pic rail.

2. Buy a field gun with rifled barrel and pic rail.

3. Buy a M4; I actually have read of people killing deer this way!

4. Just attach a high viz sight and hope for the best

5. Buy a different brand altogether and likely buy a pump.

 

My preferences would be number 1-3, not in that order necessarily.

 

At one time years ago, I had a M2 Turkey with Red Dot scope and should never have sold it!!

 

Any thoughts or suggestions? I can't afford more than about $1200.

My SBE II had some little plugs I knocked out of the top of the receiver to use the predrilled and tapped holes to attach an optics mount. Does you M2 not have this feature?

Have been to MGW site, problem with getting a slug barrel is I want to mount a red dot, so a new barrel doesn’t fully answer the need. I’m also considering one of those Burris Speed Bead mounts but honestly, I hate the look of them.

There is a post on Benelli's Facebook page showing an M2 a young lady used to bag a whitetail, the gun in the picture has a scope mounted. It can be done.

 

can you post a picture of the top of your M2's receiver?

I’ve decided to just buy another gun afterall and have a line in an older NIB M2 with steadygrip that is pre-drilled. Thanks for the help y’all!

So on to the next question.....any leads on a rail for the M2 field that is pre-drilled? I bought the turkey gun version 24" barrel and steadygrip in Realtree. Would like to buy the scope base in realtree as well and am only finding one from a company called 'Traditions'.....just not sure it fits the M2.

I also found a Weaver model that should fit fine but it's black. I may just buy it and throw some rattle can paint on it if I can't find the proper rail.
