I have finally taken a nice Tom with a long barreled 87 . I used black powder ( old E ) and a healthy dose of # 5 shot . This season I have called 2 birds in one was a nice jake and the other was a nice Tom . The Tom had a 11 inch beard and 1 1/8 spurs and weighted 25 pounds .

The '87 is a great shotgun!  Nice work with an iconic firearm.  I love mine - perfect for black powder CAS.  Mine has a 32" full choke 12 gauge barrel.
Nice bird too!

This shotgun is not an original Winchester . It is a Chinese gun that Frog installed a 28 inch barrel on . He also fitted it with choke tubes which works Great .

   Greetings, RF!

   Those Win 87 Shotguns are really handsome, and I like what you had
done to yours. Bravo on the Turk!
   I'd really like to budget for one...!
