New Turkey Thumpers! Introducing Escort’s PS Turkey Hunter Shotgun

Many of us are fighting to ward off boredom and thinking of all the activities we are going to do once we are out of quarantine. One activity that we can still participate in thankfully is hunting, and Hatsan USA has recently debuted a NEW shotgun specifically for turkey hunting! They go on to explain what it is all about in this Press Release covering the Escort PS Turkey Hunter:

Bentonville, AR (March, 2020) – Escort’s proven PS line of semi-automatic shotguns are now available in turkey-specific models. The PS Turkey Hunter is available in 12-GA, 20-GA, and .410-Cal and is tailored with the turkey shooter in mind. Common to many Escort semi-automatic shotguns, the PS Turkey Hunter features Hatsan’s FAST Loading System and Smart Valve Piston technologies. The FAST Loading System enables faster and easier loading with one hand and without the need to change shooting position. The loading button acts as both a carrier latch release for loading and the bolt release when the bolt is locked back. This gun’s Smart Valve Piston will cycle 7/8 oz, 2.75-inch all the way up to 3-inch full magnum loads, credited to its self-regulating design. This patented design is so reliable that one can mix heavy and light loads in the same magazine without a hiccup.

With the PS Turkey Hunter, you have your choice of two available camo patterns: RealTree APG and Mossy Oak BottomLand. With each PS Turkey Hunter, you receive 3 Interchangeable Chokes suitable for a variety of turkey hunting situations. They are also outfitted with a 5″ cantilever rail featuring 4 cross-slots to accommodate a variety of Weaver mounts or directly mounted optics. The PS Turkey Hunter is also equipped with a bright red, windage-adjustable fiber optic front sight and a green fiber optic rear sight that is both windage and elevation adjustable. All of Hatsan’s barrels are hard chrome lined for maximum durability and corrosion resistance. The MSRP for the PS Turkey Hunter is $499.99 and all of the specifications for the 12, 20, and .410 Gauge PS Turkey Hunter can be read below.
