In 1962, Remington Arms started manufacturing a bolt-action rifle series called the Remington 700. This model was based on the Remington 722 and Remington 721 rifles that were first released in 1948. The Remington 700 rifles use a centerfire bolt action. Their caliber determines the capacity of the internal magazine. The ammo capacity of the magazine could be 3 rounds, 4 rounds, or 5 rounds in various versions of the model. Some allow for fast unloading, thanks to their floor plate. However, not all the rifles have floor plates in them. If you want a detachable box magazine, you’ll need to order that especially with the rifle. You can find different Remington 700 versions that include their own unique calibers, stocks, and barrels.

One of the most popular shotgun accessories you can add to your existing shotgun is a scope. This gives you the ability to see far away targets and increases your accuracy tremendously. However, not all scopes are the same which is why you need to purchase a high-quality scope that gives you the most features possible.

Optic sights are a form of firearm sight technology which gives the shooter an image in their sight scope that is aligned with their aiming point. This image is basically a crosshair that allows you to easily aim at your intended target. The idea is to align the crosshair so that the middle of it is covering the target you want to shoot.

Now there are numerous kinds of sights available including telescopic sights, reflector sights, and holographic sights. The most commonly used one is the telescopic sight (scope), which is an optical telescope that magnifies the sight in front of you and paints a crosshair over it. You’ll find telescopic sights on many devices besides firearms such as surveying equipment. Scientists even use them on their bigger telescopes which are known as “finderscopes.”

There are many ways to go about mounting a red dot scope onto a Remington 870 shotgun. Some of these ways are expensive, while others require more time and energy at a cheaper price. The most common way is to use saddle mounts by replacing the trigger pins with bolts for the mounts. However, the most reliable method of mounting a red dot scope is drilling and tapping the receiver first and then installing the rail. You will need a drill and skills in gunsmithing in order to do this properly. That is why it may be better for beginners or average users to just use saddle mounts with bolts that replace the trigger pins. This method is much simpler and faster to install. Once the mount is placed on top, you just screw the red dot scope into it or snap it in depending on the model.
