One of Germany’s oldest hunting firearms manufacturers, J.P. Sauer and Sohn, is excited to announce the latest addition to their line of hunting shotguns. The new SL5 Turkey Shotgun is a semi-auto 3-inch shell compatible platform specifically designed to be a competitive but affordable entry into the turkey hunting shotgun category. The new shotgun will be made available in 3 different camouflage patterns and come complete with optics capability and a pistol grip right from the factory.

New SL5 Turkey Shotguns from J.P. Sauer & Sohn
While the Sauer SL5 was released in early 2017, there has been popular demand from some of the more outspoken hardcore turkey hunters for a shotgun platform with more features. The SL5 Turkey Shotgun now incorporates an 18.5″ deep-drilled chrome-lined barrel topped with a stepped rip for the most precise alignment. Other features include a durable composite pistol grip stock with an included Cervellati recoil pad as well as a red single-bead LPA front fiber-optic sight.
The SL5 receiver features a black anodized exterior, an oversized extended bolt handle, an oversized bolt release, and a removable Picatinny rail that is pre-mounted from the factory. Each SL5 weighs 7 pounds and comes with a factory standard 3+1 capacity which should be good to go in most places where turkey hunting is allowed. The SL5 Turkey also comes with 3 chokes including a flush Cylinder, extended CRIO Plus Modified Choke, and a Carlson Extended Turkey Choke.
“We are excited to partner with Mossy Oak to introduce these new high-performance, camo pattern turkey guns in our SL5 series,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. “There is strong demand, and we designed these new shotguns to deliver desired features and consistent reliability at a very competitive price point.”
The entire package from J.P. Sauer & Sohn is set at an MSRP of $1,199.99. These new SL5 Turkey shotguns are available now and will come in either Obsession, Bottomland, or New Bottom Land camouflage patterns all from Mossy Oak.
