Mine was mounted using a 336 base and tapping the rib.
I have done this with 3 different sxs guns, but I haven't done a Bobwhite. William had to do some machining on the Yildiz to make it sit level, but it was as simple as drilling and tapping the holes on the others.

Dead Coyote

Re: Yildiz sight plane

There are a lot of factors involved in the sight picture you get when you shoulder a shotgun. The drop at heel and drop at comb are very important in how the gun fits you, and so is the length of pull. It sounds like your gun also has cast to the stock to help a right handed shooter. You have change...

Re: 20 gauge SxS

Preach, we actually shoot Hevi handloads (#9)in the right (open) barrel. I set these guns to shoot left barrel “on” at 40 yds. The right barrel shoots “on” at 20 yds. I didn’t try to get them to shoot to same POA/POI. Maybe I was lucky and it just worked for me, maybe not. I did right about 15 doub...

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone that imports a reasonably priced DT sxs anymore. CZ did for a long time, but I think they only have ST guns that are higher priced now. There are several Turkish firms that make decent guns that would be suitable for turkey hunting, but I don't know of any that ...

Re: ? about getting SBE original D&T

I have a SBE that I bought in 2002. It is not the H&K model, and it was made before they came out with the SBE2. The receiver is some type of alloy, and it doesn't attract a magnet. Jimmy McCollough, a gunsmith in Selma, AL, drilled and tapped it for me and I've taken the mount on and off a dozen ti...

Re: 22 Rifle sports a new tube

Nice looking rig.

I was in the market for a good squirrel rifle about 25 years ago and came down to a 541-T or a 10-22. I decided to go with the 10-22 because of all the accessories available. It has been a good gun, but I soon regretted not going with the Remington. Enjoy!

Re: Mouth Calls vs Friction Calls and Trumpet style calls

I agree that having confidence in whatever call you use is very important. Confidence in a call often equates with skill in the use of that call. A guy that is a "top tier" caller with a particular call or type of call will call turkeys day in or day out just because they know how to make the sound...

I've got some guns that have them and some that don't. I like it for hunting; I am used to flipping the safety off as I mount the gun so it doesn't slow me down any. For clay shooting, probably better to be manual

Re: Toughest State You Ever Turkey Hunted

A turkey doesn't know what state he is in, and state lines have nothing to do with how easy or hard a turkey might be to kill. My opinion is that it is all about the population on a particular property and the amount of pressure they have on them. Unpressured turkeys in areas that have good populati...

Good article with a lot of truth in it. I had never read it before, but I know the author well and will ask him about it next time I see him.

I can't imagine a 2 year old gobbler having 1.5" spurs; must be more to the story.

Missouri did a tagging study where a substantial percentage of birds had shorter spurs on the second go round of being tagged. I’m at the beach or else I would look it up. It was something like 12-20%. There is a genetic component to spurs as well, some just aren’t ever going to to giants. I think ...
