When you are standing at the edge of a wide field and suddenly the buck of a lifetime appears--but he's a long way away--you'll be happy that the Deerslayer III is your slug gun of choice. Called a "laser beam" by one prominent gun writer, the DSIII is built upon the classic Model 37 action and uses a fluted heavy-walled rifled barrel to produce its impressive results. It’s fully rifled, so many brands of slugs perform well through the DSIII. The gun is available in 12 gauge and 20 gauge.
The Deerslayer III features:
•Deadly accurate performance to 200 yards
•A receiver that is machined from a solid block of steel
•Solderless Barrel System
•The strongest, truest barrel of any slug gun
•Robust extraction for today's high power ammunition
•Crisp, rifle-like 4-6lb. trigger pull
•Drop tine deer head engraving
•Fancy black walnut stock and forend
