This week we have two turkey guns, one old, one new. The old gun is an interesting artifact of the search for a better semiauto shotgun. The Winchester Model 50 featured the floating chamber invented by David “Carbine” Williams, the moonshiner who began working on guns in prison (and was the subject of a movie starring Jimmy Stewart). It was made from 1954 to 1962. The very next year, 1963, Remington changed semiauto shotguns forever when it introduced the soft-shooting 1100 gas gun. With the addition of a pressure compensated piston, in 1987, the 1100 became the 11-87, which, of course, is still in production. So our second option today is a very modern, deadly 11-87 turkey gun.
