I was spending some time in a gun shop yesterday and saw a Marlin Model 512 bolt action slug gun with a rifled barrel. There were two of them sitting on the used gun rack. The other one was a bit beat up and had a Bushnell Sportview scope. The one I like appeared to be unfired. It had the factory scope mount, but no scope. The shop owner and I talked and the Marlin care home with me.

These are very nice slug guns and are required in some shotgun-only deer hunting areas to the south of where I live. I suspect we will see rifle restrictions around where I live due to soaring population increases and loss of open spaces. The Model 512 is discontinued, but is a very nice slug gun at a reasonable price. All the best...
Gil

If it's a Marlin, it has to be good.
Don't listen to anything that Bushy says about it though. Very Happy
Congratulations.

A friend of mine has one of those..I believe it came as a package with a Bushnell scope.
Anyway, I spend some time at the range with him, zeroing it in- excellent accuracy! Groups under 2 inches (3 shot) at 100 yards with sabots it liked.

Anymore slug guns or maybe we really should be calling them "rifles' as they are beating alot of factory rifles out of the box for accuracy, are nothing to laugh at. They are capable of some outstanding accuracy, and I would not be hesitant to take one as a primary for bigger things should the need arrise. The new Sabot bullets are just incredible. Same thing for the new generation of in-line muzzle loaders. These are "rifles" in the truest form of the word.
