Savage Arms announced a new shotgun under its Stevens line. The new Model 320 is a pump action scattergun designed for turkey hunting. This field grade shotgun is similar to existing Model 320 field guns, but includes a number of options making it more suited for turkey hunting:
- Mossy Oak Obsession camo pattern on the stock and fore end
- extended full choke
- extra long green fiber optic front sight
- drilled and tapped receiver for mounting a scope or other optic
The gun has a 22″ barrel with vent rib. As with the other Model 320 shotguns, this one has dual slide bars and a rotary bolt. The tube magazine holds five 12 gauge shells. Shells are loaded under the receiver and empties are tossed to the right.
The suggested retail price is an affordable $280. Local dealers may be able to do a little better than that, though I imagine the margins might be fairly tight. According to Vista Outdoor, the parent company of Savage Arms, the Stevens Model 320 turkey shotgun is currently being shipped to distributors and dealers. If you are in the market for one, you should be able to find these “in the wild” soon. Savage also introduced two other Model 320 shotguns – one with a Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades camo and another with the Muddy Girl pattern.
