Wow! What kind of mount is that? And are they available for an 870?...or is that an 870?

I have an almost identical mount on my 870.
It's a solid chunk of aluminum, fits perfectly, and has a real Picatinny rail.

Nice. Red dots are great for aging eyes when you (I) can see the sights or the target but never both.

I've got a little 2.5x scope on my Mini-14, thinking about a red-dot for it for the same reason, rpm.

Wiercutter, I do not mean to be rude but an M.O.A. of over 12" even with shotgun slugs is not impressive. This man has a fine looking piece of machinery but I would hope the flyers were merely sighting in a newly mouted scope. Could he elaborate and give a few more details? Because I am interested in a shotgun scope.

Don't know how many targets were tacked up on that backing. If he'll share the details about the gun, I'll damned sure post them for you.

John said...

Thank you Sir.

Hey Djrim!
That's sweet! I wanted to put a Red dot on the 870 for awhile.

Thanks for the tip!

I tried a red dot but even when turned to max I couldn't see the dam dot when it was sunny out.But in low light it worked great.

This here's what I shoot:
(well...one of them anyway)

John, I have an 1100 that I put a rifled barrel and a Nikon scope on. I hated shooting it with the smoothbore barrel because it's just not balanced very well, and if you don't enjoy shooting it, you won't use it, which means you won't get good with it.
With sabot slugs, shooting from my Lead Sled, I can easily hold 2" groups at 100 yards, and 3" groups at 200 yards. And shooting from some sand bags, I'm almost as good, 2"~3" at 100 yards, and 3"~4" at 200 yards. I'm sure if I shot it more, I'd get even better, but day-um, those sabot slugs are expensive!

its a remington 870 police. the mount is by weaver that i got at walmart.the red dot is a tasco that also came from wally world.it also has a limbsaver slip on buttpad that makes a world of difference. the target in the picture dosent have any holes in it yet.

Corey,
I've found that reflex sights with a green dot/triangle stand out pretty good in bright sunshine. UTG makes a couple multi-color, variable intensity sights. You can find them pretty cheap at Leapers.com.
