If you can use a lefty I have a nice 8 gauge available. Should be real turkey medicine.

Do you want double, single, flint or percussion? Be more specific if you have something in mind.
Well preferably a single percussion with screw in chokes as to be able to put in a turkey choke... Now that being said I am aware we don't always get what we want

Well that wouldn't be a muzzle loader

And that would make it hard to hunt of a muzzleloading tag

No don't know about the flash in my face
I and many lefties shoot right lock sided firearms all the time, both flint and percussion. If you focus on the front sight and target you will never even notice it. I speak from the other side experience.

what you want is a modern one! the old ones don't' have chrome lined barrels and screw in chokes! I think you will have to go and order one from DGW'S. I also have several old original ones and they aint going anywhere!

Screw in chokes on a ML sounds great, but they're not for all the steps. What I mean is shooting with them does control your pattern.
Loading with them suck's. Trying to get the wadding and cards down a Full choke, heck even a modified choke doesn't work worth a
darn. Oh you could unscrew them every time you want to load but that will get old real quick. You also have to make sure you keep
those super fine threads clean or else you could bugger them and you don't want to do that. I had a couple of barrels for my
TC New Englander a 12ga straight pipe and one with the chokes. The latter one went down the road, and a two months latter, that
guy sent it down the road again.
Look for a straight pipe, shoot it, get to know it and different loads, then use your loads accordingly to your prey.

I have experienced no problems loading my TC New Englander with modified choke tube, no need to remove it for loading.

Now a full choke or tighter might be inconvenient, but I am very happy with modified.

Did you find one yet? I have a T/C custom 12 bore that was listed on Gunbroker but I took it down last week. The stock is single trigger and used (in great shape) but it has a new, never-fired Toledo Armas (spelling) barrel on it. I got that barrel with a set that came with three barrels and a stock, all new. Sold all but the 12 gauge barrel and put it in a really nice stock. It is a percussion gun with a very tight choke. My dial caliper showed it to be around .685, or thereabouts. No removable chokes though. It is much tighter choked than my New Englander that is cylinder bore and should make a fantastic goose or turkey gun. Took it down but it is still for sale. or trade. Let me know if interested.
