Escort 12 gage

Postby Jon Bergren » Tue Jan 07, 2014 10:43 am

When I went to look at 20 gage guns, I bought a 12 gage Escort. If I was 10 yrs younger I would have bought the 20 gage. These guns have beautiful walnut, 5 chokes that fit the Rem also, Magazine cut off and the typical O ring. It is a 3 incher. It had spacers to increase length of pull, also for drop and cast and a raised ventilated rib. With the proper spacers it fits me perfectly. It is a gas operated with the locking block design with minimum of parts similiar to The Excell. It doesn't have a sleeve to turn end for end for 3" loads like the Excell. The gun is similiar in design to the Excell. $450 at the Academy. 10gageokie bought the 20 gage Escort. Ned S

jpari said he didn't want to be a smart ass but I had misspelled gage that it should have been gauge. I gave him references from the 1950 Machinery's Handbook and now the knock out blow. Websters dictionary I had in college says "Gage -- Same as Gauge". I wonder where he learned grammar and spelling?????? Ned S

Gage is one of those words that falls into that grey area :thumbsup:

Ned
Let me clear this up, I havent bought the Escort yet, but I intend to. I am excited about it from the begining. I liked it right off when I saw it on the dealer's shelf. I liked it even more when I was able to handle it. My first info about the chokes for the 20ga from Legacy was that the new style chokes have Rem threads but were in a diff position than the Rem chokes. That was bogus as I later found out they are one in the same as the Remchoke. This all was a hold up on getting the correct info about the chokes that come with the 20ga. I have not gone into detail finding out about the 12ga chokes.
So you are right about what you said on the 20ga chokes at least. I assume from all this the 12ga are Remchoke too?
Besides the high grade Turkish walnut on these and other features you mentioned, it also comes with a white chrome lined bore and a outside black chrome barrel. This is an important feature to me. The bolt and bolt handle appear to be black chrome but I am not sure about that yet. The fit and balance of this gun is perfect for me and I have no doubt I will really take to it, just like I did to my HkSBE. It feels short, compact and light but not too light. The high rib seems just right for good sight picture and it comes with a flouresent front sight. Its barrel is over bore. The only option it lacks is sling swivel studs.

Ned,

I was truly trying to be helpful. That is why I sent you a PM rather than going public with my comment in your thread. Check your PMs again because I still choose to be bigger than you and continue this conversation discreetly. Also, please check the two spellings of gauge and gage in "Websters online dictionary" you will find the definitions enlightening. It is unfortunate that you are so insecure that you cannot take help from someone in the spirit in which it was intended. Unfortunately, instead you feel the need to publicly attack me when I was attempting to help you privately without drawing public attention to you. Please forgive my attempt to help you and you can be assured that I will never respond again to one of your posts regardless how idiotic it may sound. Please have a good life.

I checked the choke threads out before I bought my 12 gage Escort and saw they fit. I have Rem chokes including Extended and a 675 Terror. Ned S

Sorry Chris as I thought you had already bought one. My 12 gage barrel is 27". I think that is why the balance is so good. Also the barrel measures .730". Ned S

:fingerpt: :fingerpt:
ned, ol' boy, you just committed a cardinal sin; revealing the message in a PM. They are called Private Messaging for a reason: they are supposed to be PRIVATE.
You owe jpari a major...and public....apology, sir.
