I guess I will have to prove it to myself. Thanks for the warning though. Your friendship means the world to me Kev. In 40 years of buying shotguns, I can say I never bought a lemon other than a couple of 870 Wingmasters which everyone says are bullet proof. If it turns out a bad purchase, I will be the first to let you know you were right.

I have read all the reviews on the Escort Supreme and for the most part, its reviews are as good as some of the best made guns available, overall. My other choice for a 20 was finding a good used Benelli M1 or a Benelli SL 80 but I like the Escort choice better. Thanks for your imput though.
The 20ga Escort has features that come with this gun right out of the box, not all found on other guns. These include, over bore barrel, black chome barrel, bolt and charge handle, sling swivels, flouresent front sight, quality recoil pad and white chorme bore with allow action. Thus nothing to worry about dealing with rust or problems with the recoil spring with it being on the magazine tube. Plus it fits and feels perfect which is a main consideration to me. In other words, I dont have to modify it. The Escorts are stocked with high grade Turkish walnut which as anyone knows, tends to split in certain pieces and grains of wood. My oldest high grade shotgun has some high grade wood and I have owned it long enough for it to aquire a split in the forearm.

EXACTLY YOUR......YILDIZ!!!!!! Not Escort :help: Stick with a maker that has US support. Like Briley.

This thread seems to have a high amount of knowledge when it comes to the turkish semis, so i have a question from another thread that hasnt been answered yet. Do any of your academies carry a TR import silver eagle? Saw one at dunhams and cant find more than two people online that have bought one and done a video or review.

I never understand why guys have such an expensive hobby in waterfowling yet buy cheapo shotguns. Go buy a good quality shotgun and save yourself headaches and ruined trips. I learn with Binoculars a long time ago when I used to buy 300 dollar pairs. After several different ones I bought the swarovski's I should of bought in the first place instead I paided double the price for them with all the 300 dollar pairs I bought.

Over 40 years of buying many shotguns, I have only twice had one let me down and it was supposed to be the most reliable being a 870 Wingmaster. It never has made any diff on how much the gun cost as they all have been good ones. I dont intend to let this course change, no matter the cost, high or low. Normally, I buy something because I like it, not because everyone else says its great. Perhaps I was lucky to only get hold of one lemon in the batch over the years. On the other hand, maybe it was using common sense learned over the years. You dont always get what you pay for it you dont know what you are doing.

Chris look at the Weatherby SA-08's. Its a quality gun backedby a really good company. I have a 12 gauge and have put it through the ringer this year and have yet to have a malfunction. It has really surprised me and is my go to gun

Scott
Thanks for the tip. I have looked at the Weatherby and did not care for it. I own three Weatherby 92s and like them alot though. Like I said, I have quit searching at the moment and have pretty much settled on the Escort. I fell for it the first time I saw one. The more I look at it, the more I like it. My favorite 12ga is my SBE and I like the Escort better than a M1 20ga. It may be a few weeks before I purchase one though. All of the other 20s just dont have the features the Escort has. I will not have to do any mods to it as its like I want it right out of the box.

They had a chromed sleeve (situated on the magazine tube) that you set one way for light loads and reversed it for magnum loads, somewhat like the friction ring arrangement on Browning A5's.

Ordered a new Excell and it came in today. This one has a reversable piston/sleeve for light or heavy loads. 4 Choke tubes which I believe are Remchoke compatible but they aren't stainless like Remchokes. IC, MOD, IM and F. In regards to another thread, this gun DOES NOT have it's recoil spring in the stock.

So far, I have been extremely happy with my new Escort Supreme 20ga auto. I like it so well, I am thinking of getting the same gun in 12ga.

Good for him. How many rounds has he put through that gun? 10,000? 1000? 100? Two boxes? It's important, those details.... :thumbsup:

He's 13, and it works good for him. I've got a question for ya Mudpack, are you this negative and condescending with everyone you come in contact with or just on the internet? But to answer question....he's put as many rounds through it a boy from 9-13 could while hunting with his father.

That pretty much sounds like the answer to my question might be; closer to two boxes than to 10,000 rounds...?

To answer your question: only on the internet. My friends all are smarter than I am....whereas on the forums, I seem to be in the 90th percentile. :eek:
Only on the internet will I find people who make statements that sound good at first reading but, when analyzed, have little actually useful meaning. (I take that back; Washington DC is one other place)
So, I try to ask questions...or make statements... that will either bring out important facts so the statement can demonstrate useful information, or show the statement for what it is; without much worth. It comes from my background, which developed highly analytical thinking. :biggrin:

About guns-
I happen to shoot an M2. It fits me very well and has never failed to function.

I personally don't care what anyone shoots. My homeboy Goodkarmarising uses a Mossberg pump. The ducks and geese never seem to mind either; they die as quick as the ones I shoot.

I am lucky in that I have a gun I will use the rest of my life and don't have to worry about the next great thing that comes out.

Fight it out girls. I will be packing my beloved m2 for years to come.

When it comes to shotguns, you always get what you pay for.

Not necessarily. I have an early Express that cost around $200 when it was new but I have gotten thousands of dollars worth of use out of it. I couldn't even begin to estimate the number of shells it has digested. Definitely more than all of my other shotguns put together. That gun has been better to me than some costing me up to eight times as much.

Now if you mean that if you pay around $350 you can get an 870 and if you pay $1,600 you can get a SBE2, then yes, you are getting the gun you payed for but that doesn't mean it will be 4.5 times more reliable.

I dont see where mechanical difficulties inter into the equation here with the Escort. Since I already bought one and want another one in a diff gauge, having problems is not in my mind at all. I see only A400s and new A5s with mechanical problems right now. I would be concerned buying one of those and a warning might be in order if I was fixing to buy one. The Escort is a solid gun. I didnt just arrive on a turnip wagon.
