Magnetic shotgun sights are becoming very popular amongst competitive shooters and hunters. They help shooters aim their targets properly and accurately, especially if the environment is dim or dark. The HiViz Magni-Hunter is one of the top shotgun sights on the market today. For one thing, it is a magnetic front sight that utilizes Magni-Optics which allows it to attach to virtually any shotgun that is vent-ribbed. Some popular brands that have vent-ribbed shotguns include Remington, Benelli, Browning, Beretta, Ruge, Charles Daly, Franchi, and Verona. The make and model of the shotgun don’t really matter as long as the vent ribs meet certain size requirements. The ventilated ribs of the shotgun need to be between from .230″ to .330″ for MGH2007-I and between .3555 inches and .440 inches for MGH2007-II, in order for this magnetic front sight to fit properly. You’ll find that most of the models from those brands have vent ribs which meet this size requirement.
Champion EasyHit Fiber Optic Sights for Shotguns (Review)
I decided to try the EasyHit light gathering sight on my Benelli Supernova shotgun because I’ve heard a lot of positive feedback about it. Champion EasyHit can be attached to Remington 870 or any other shotgun which has vent rib.
Good sight is extremely important because you use it every time you shoulder a shotgun. There are a lot of sights you can choose for the vented rib barrel. There are magnetic sights, and sights that you attach using a screw or adhesive strip.
HiViz Magnetic M300 Shotgun Front Sight for Vented Rib Barrels
Another good sight from HiViz. This is magnetic base sight which is easy to install on ventilated rib barrel. It doesn’t move under heavy 12 gauge recoil.
There are pipes of different diameters, so you can choose the one that you like.
It can be installed on any shotgun (there are different versions for different ribs). The best thing is that there is no need to unscrew the existing sight, you can just attach the HiViz magnetic sight together with the factory sight.
