Retay

Post by wingbonehntr » January 26th, 2019, 9:28 pm

Does anyone have experience with the retay shotguns? Got a friend who is getting one and was wondering if there are any aftermarket turkey chokes for them? Thanks

Sure looks like a Benelli! I'd like to shoot one to see how the improved inertia system works. Keep us posted when your buddy gets and shoots his.

Retay is a Turkish Benelli knock off. I’ve heard good things about them but don’t have a clue about after market chokes.

Made in turkey so it should be a decent shotgun. I would love to try one out

Trulock makes chokes for them. It doesn’t indicate what other chokes are compatible though.

One of my buddies shot one all of duck and turkey season this year. They are Benelli knock offs for sure, but they are well made and much easier on the wallet. I'm hoping they come out with a 20 gauge and I'm going to buy one

I’ve been looking at em hard since last fall. Kinda just been waiting on that bottomland/bronze to debut. The Retay rep told me summer 2019. Sharp looking rig.

That’s right...and from what I understand, there is no other choke that interchanges.
