Dead Ringer Beard Buster Sight for Shotguns

Do you like to hunt turkeys or other types of fowl? If so, then try to add the Dead Ringer Beard Buster Sight to your shotgun. This sight attachment will make it easier to see your target in dark or dim environments. This is a circular sight that gets attached to the rear and high front sight which replaces the factory sight of the shotgun. The front sight is designed to be universal since it can fit vent rib shotguns that are 3/8, 1/4, or 5/16. The Beard Buster is compatible with almost all the popular shotgun brands, including Remington, Beretta, Winchester, Ruger, Mossberg, Weatherby, and more.

One unique feature of the Beard Buster sight is the yardage estimator This estimator will give you a good idea of how far away the fowl is from you. When the head of the bird is visible inside the orange ring of the estimator, this means it is about 30 to 35 yards away. For a shotgun user, this is a good distance to shoot the bird at. You can use the orange ring for other types of targets, but it is meant to be for targeting fowl.

Also, I really like shooting slugs with this set of sights. It is very easy to aim when you have the rear sight.

The rear and front bases of the Beard Buster are made from machined aluminum. This is a lightweight and durable material which won’t add any noticeable weight to your shotgun. You can take it outside in nasty weather conditions, such as rain, wind, and snow, and it will be just fine. It can even endure accidental impact with other objects, in case you bang into something accidentally.

Perhaps the coolest feature of the Beard Buster is the light pipes which let you aim in dimly lit environments. These interchangeable light pipes stay attached to the shotgun, thanks to their twist locks. Since they are interchangeable, you get to choose which color you want for the sight.

As for the actual mounting of the Beard Buster sight, it is quite a simple process that doesn’t require you to be a gunsmith or any type of gun expert. You just use the mounting hardware and wrench that came with the sight. There are instructions included that will guide you along the mounting process. It took me just 10 minutes to install the front and rear sights.

The price of the Dead Ringer Beard Buster sight is $19.99. It is a pretty good deal when you consider how much better you will shoot in the dark.

Small and inexpensive but very nice upgrade, recommended.
