Subject: Marlin model 512 slugmaster
I have a question for everyone I was just wondering if anyone here owns a Marlin model 512 slugmaster 12ga shotgun. I ask because the owner at the gun shop by me has one for sale for 200 it even has a red dot sight on it. Does anyone know if this gun is worth the money?

According to the Gun Trader's Guide #27 that seems to be a fair price, especially since it has an electronic sight on it. But ALWAYS try to talk them down a few dollars anyway! :twisted:

Subject: I do have a Marlin Slugmaster
I do have a Marlin 12 gauge Slugmaster and I love it, I paid about 225 for it, came with a Simmons rifle scope. Great shotgun. Just wish there were bigger clips for it.

I have owned three of these dreams and they are tack drivers with the right load. Like ANY slug gun you have to try different loads in each gun. The 512 has a 1 in 28 inch twist, same as the TC slug barrel, which suits itself to many of the sabots on the market today. My first rig shot the Partition Golds from Winchester like a target rifle but my second prefers the heavier and slower sabots from Lightfield and even the old Federal Classics in 2 3/4". You can't go wrong with these rigs once you find the right load. I am bidding on one right now and the bid is up to $330.00. It is "as new" with the box and all the papers so it is worth it. I have taken whitetails in Illinois with the first rig at 110, 165, 187, 215, 265, 285, 287 and 320 yards, all measured with a range finder. None ran more than a few yards. We all use bolt action slug guns (except my future son-in-law who will be getting the one I am bidding on if i win) and practice regularly out to 250 yards and "play" at 300. None of these shots are "irresponsible" so don't start on that tangent. Our group shoots one Savage, two Mossbergs, two Marlins and one Browning, all bolts and two new-comers with single shots, one TC and one H&;R Ultra-slug which is also a real tack driver ( 2 1/2" at 200 yards on paper consistantly!) once we had the trigger done right. The Browning shoots the worst but the rifling is WAY too slow. Two of us shoot the Partition Golds after that everyone is different. The Marlins outshine evey gun in the field. Buy it, try it and spend the money you are saving on finding the right slug for your gun. From experience I can guess this may cost you a couple humdred bucks. All my Marlins have shot an inch or less at 100 yards with they favorite fodder.

I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR ONE FOR HUNTING DEER IN IL. I HAVE READ THAT THE MARLIN 512 WOULD BE A GOOD GUN FOR THAT. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO PURCHASE THE MARLIN AT YOUR LOCAL GUN SHOP, WOULD YOU BE SO HELPFUL TO LET ME KNOW WHERE IT MAY BE LOCATED SO I CAN CONTACT THEM.
