Built a turkey gun

I took an old crusty 870 and "fixed it up" to shoot turkeys. I know it is unnecessary to have a dedicated turkey gun but my gun safe is full of shotguns and figured why not bring this old girl back to life, and I needed a project what do you think?

Have you tried that red dot yet with 1 3/4 oz loads? Interested to see if it holds up to the recoil for you.

I am hoping to this weekend, I am worried about it as well but there were good reviews on this unit holding zero with high recoil loads. I will let you know when I get a chance to shoot it.

AKal,,,ya get a chance to run a few through baby yet? And by the way it's necessary to have a dedicated turkey gun,(know what i means)she says you have a 12ga...but this is a turkey gun! I had a barska I tried on my ML ,could not seem to dial it at 100 yards tho,but that's a ML which seems to different animal on its own sometimes,anyway your project looks good,keep in touch.
