Default Winchester Model 1300 Short Turkey

I was wondering if any of you guys had this gun, or have ever shot it. It has an 18 inch barrel. I know you want it shorter when turkey hunting, but is that maybe to short, or is it a great turkey gun. I own a benelli nova, and was just wanting to expand my firearm selection....thanks

I bought one last January. I think it's a great gun. I shot my biggest (27 lbs) tom to date this spring with it. It shoots well, but I'm still searching for the best choke tube for it.

I don't own that particular model, but I do hunt with a Winchester 1300 N.W.T.F. edition of 1992 vintage. Love that gun!!

I also have a 1300 works well best gun for the money. Mine has the 22 inch. That seems to work with the extra full choke.

My son (doall hunter) has one, the NWTF edition with the 22" barrel. My dad hunted with it for years and killed several turkeys using the factory full choke. He gave it to my son this year. I think it is a really good turkey gun. Light, handles well. I will be patterning it next weekend using an undertaker .675 and 3" Hevi-13 #6 and #7 loads.

I have one and I like it. I got a non ported Undertaker choke in mine and shooting the Flightcontrol shells. Easy to carry and to move around trees with while getting a bead on the tom.
