Williams Gun Sight Company: Remington 870 Fiber Optic ACE IN THE HOLE Sight Review
Thanks to Tommy Geraci, one of the blog readers for making this review!
ACE IN THE HOLE
Williams Gun Sight Co. has a variety of sights for shotgun, rifle and handgun platforms. I will begin this review with the W.G.S. Co. Ace In The Hole fiber optic ghost ring with an integrated 1913 picatinny rail for the Remington 870 shotgun. The Ace In The Hole is designed for drilled and tapped receivers. This ensures a rock solid fit which further helps to maintain a constant zero. Gunsmithing is required to drill and tap the receiver unless the Remington 870 has already been drilled and tapped. Ensure that the screws included will work with a previously drilled and tapped receiver by calling Williams Gun Sight Co. and asking them directly.
The Ace In The Hole is very well designed. It has 4 screw holes for use with magnum and standard Remington 870 models. The bottom of the picatinny rail is contoured to fit snug to the top of the 870’s receiver and the ghost ring sight sits on an integrated adjustable riser mount for elevation adjustments. Windage can be adjusted directly from the ghost ring aperture mount. Of course the 1913 picatiny rail gives the shooter an option to attach their favorite hunting or tactical optic as well. The ghost ring houses a uniquely placed fiber optic, W.G.S Co. calls them their Fire Sights and I would have to agree that they deserve that name. The slight angle at which the Fire Sights are placed really makes these fiber optic sights glow. They are extremely bright and gather light exceptionally well even in low light situations.
The Ace In The Hole is made out of aircraft grade aluminum using the precision manufacturing method known as CNC (Computerized Numerical Control). The CNC process and quality of the metal play an important part in the production of extremely precise and high quality parts. I like to think about it like this, if we expect our shots to precise then the methods and material in which they are manufactured must be as well. I mention this method because the CNC process is top of the line and contributes greatly to the outstanding design and overall quality of the Williams Gun Sight Co. Ace In The Hole ghost ring sight. The Ace In The Hole offers extremely quick target acquisition and can be used for hunting, target practice and tactical applications.
