Ghost ring sights are basically thin iron rings that are installed on top of most submachine guns and combat shotguns. There are no optical or laser sights used in this case. It is just a ring that the shooter looks through in order to align their target through the middle of the ring. There is also a thick post in front of the ring so you can aim at your target more precisely.

Ghost rings are the perfect sights to have if you want to remain discrete in your targeting. It is truly a clever way to attack your target by surprise, which comes in handy when hunting or in war type situations.

UNIVERSAL “GHOST RING” FIRESIGHT SET

Next up for review are the W.G.S. Co. Universal Ghost Ring Firesights. These sights offer a large amount of flexibility since they incorporate a universal design they can work on just about any vent rib shotgun with no gunsmithing required. They are made out of aircraft grade aluminum and manufactured through a CNC process. The color combination of a red front sight and a green ghost ring rear sight really compliment each other well and only help increase a shooters target acquisition. The Universal Ghost Ring Firesights attach to a vent rib barrel via the placement holes with a combination of two latches per sight that are held in place with a set of screws that are provided.

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.

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.

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.

Tritium sights basically provide green or yellow sight lights on your shotgun that glow in the dark. They have been nicknamed “night sights” for this reason and get installed on the rear or front of your shotgun. Tritium is described as a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. The sights use tiny vials of tritium that are responsible for emitting its soft green glow. If you are in an area with low lighting or darkness then the tritium sights will allow you to see where you’re aiming.
