Marlin 512P Slugmaster 12 Gauge Slug Shotgun

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We'd put the Marlin 512P second behind the Savage. The stock was well thought out and the trigger was decent, but it could have used some work. We didn't like the scope-mounting system.

Note to Marlin: Take off the fiber-optic rifle sights, including the hooded front bead. Rifled barrel slug guns should be scoped, but they should have a better mounting system than the 512's awkward side-saddle arrangement, which requires the use of a special Weaver base and rings.
