Idea For Personalized Turkey Gun

I’m sure there are more awesome ideas out there, but here is one I thought of, and I’m certain it’s not original....

I’ve been wanting something different... something original, and something that no one else in my close nit group of hardcore hillbillies has....

Academy has a Stevens M301 single shot. 3” chamber, black synthetic stock, weighs a perfect 5.5 pounds, and has removable chokes. It’s a break action, similar to an old NEF or H&R, and it’s only $150.... Has win style choke threads..,

Thought it’d be cool to get one, get a kit and dip it in old school woodland or original mossy oak camo, put a Kicks gobblin thunder choke, drill holes for a sling, and put some good sights on it and ‘build’ it just for me to take in the mountains...

All this rain has my creeks too high to fish this evening, and I’m just sitting here thinking... Anyone else have a personalized turkey gun?

Yep, Remington SPR100, customized by the Gun Docc, Curtis Wilbanks. With various chokes, it`s my all purpose shotgun. I prefer single shots. I made the elkskin sheath with antler buttons for it.

That’s awesome. In fact, it was the pics you posted with a turkey a couple months back that got my wheels spinning. I was going to get an old Winchester model 37 and have it threaded until I saw the Stevens while surfing the web. I like it because it’s light and comes threaded.

I`d get it. And one more thing you`ll want to do is add a Limbsaver recoil pad to it. I have one on mine and also have added old leather lace on recoil pad on top of that. These lightweight 12`s will cross your eyes. They are sure nice on a long walk though.

I`d like to see your shooter when you get done with it.
