oops

I seem to have bought a new gun.

Lincoln vogue, 30" game gun, selectable barrell auto safe, multi. Fits really well and looks the dogs danglers Imo. Brand new £1k 😲

chopped the auto in for same money I paid (well lost £75 but close enough) because I decided I was right all along autos are terrible.

Genuine question, is it back bored? I'm after a non back bored new 20 bore for £1k or less for a friends 40th... I was looking for a 686s second hand but good ones are like rocking horse doings.

pretty sure its not back bored. Honestly mate as you know I like my high end guns (got two of em) but this Lincoln really is very very good indeed and looks and feels like a 3k gun . It's equal if not better than any mid range Beretta or cg etc imo

My first 20 bore was a lincoln premier gold - great gun... can't remember why I got rid of it...may be because I joined the beretta club...

Have you had the stock off then  ?  If you do, keep some sticking plasters handy  !

Did you get it from Mr. Turpin then  ?

ok...now that I have shot the Lincoln an honest review.....

 

 

......i absolutely love it. Still cant fault it, fits like a glove handles very well, shoots (for me) way better than the 687. Shot a driven partridge day today (report to follow on game section) and hit first partridge first barrell with 1/2 and it folded and landed at my feet (pretty much) what a confidence boost...imo this is one seriously good gun for naff all money. Three other guns asked to look at it and what it was, I said handle it, look at it then I will tell you. All three liked it and when I told them it was a 1k Lincoln they couldn't believe it. I say again this is one seriously good gun.
