TarHunt slug guns

Does anyone have one of these slug guns? I have an 870 that I was thinking of sending away to them to get the conversion done. Everything sounds great, but the manufacturers always make them sound great even if they suck lol Just trying to find some real information/results about them before I drop the money on it. Thanks!

Re: TarHunt slug guns

A buddy has an 11-87 that shoots just as well as my Tar-Hunt 870. BUT, my 870 that Tar-Hunt converted does shoot a whole lot better than it did before I sent it to them. It's not a magic do-all cure, but after going thru a couple of different slugs, I can shoot (in calm wind, from a rest) 1" groups @ 100 Yds, and 3"-4" groups @ 200 Yds. How you hold the slug gun and the consistency of that hold is at LEAST 60% of group size. I also changed out the trigger group for one that Timney did for me, that more imitates a good rifle trigger. That helped a lot as well.

i've used an h&r ultra slug gun for years and has superb accuracy with lightfield slugs. holds 1" groups at 100 yards which is pretty good for slugs. In expensive, a little heavy but super accurate.

But, will it do that with different brands of sabot slugs, consistently?
