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.
A lot of readers of the blog ask about the best shotgun laser. Personally, I don’t use them on my shotgun but tested several of them. So let me share my experience with two of the best lasers for shotguns.
Organized “Home Defense” training last week ended. There were 9 participants and one of them had very interesting homemade front sight protection on his Remington 870. I have never seen anything like that before. It protects the front sight from bumps which are very common when a shotgun is heavily used during hunting, competitions or training exercises.
Rifles are great weapons for hunting or when you’re performing any kind of long range shooting activity. But if you want to increase your chances of hitting a target, then you should definitely invest in a sight scope accessory as an add-on for your rifle. A sight scope is generally installed on the top of your rifle and it allows you to see far away targets at a closer range. These scopes generally include a crosshair as well so you can easily align your target in the middle of the crosshair and then shoot the target with an almost guaranteed chance of hitting it successfully. If you are a sniper or long distance shooter of any kind, you will certainly want to invest in a sight scope.
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.
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.
The XS sight system fits the Remington Pedestal model with a stepped bottom. Also fits Remington shotgun barrels with a front sight pedestal, vent rib models with a flat bottom and ones with ventilated ribs. The sights are designed to fit over existing bead sights from .125 to .140-inch diameters. The sights come with an adhesive that is used to fill in the gaps and to secure the sight to the barrel. The adhesive must fully cure before the shotgun is handled.
Benelli Supernova is one of the best shotguns for competition shooting. I will have separate post about advantages it gives to a competition shooter. This post is about Benelli Supernova upgrades and accessories.
I decided to get the longest 28″ barrel because my +7 extension is still longer than the barrel. Longer barrel enables you to hit the targets on longer distances.
Tactical Remington 870 Shotgun Photo
I have received photos of a tactical Remington 870 shotgun from one of the readers of Remington 870 blog. J.R., thank you very much for the very interesting photos.
Here are some pics of my budget tactical 870 build. It has a Streamlight TLR-1 modified so the mount does not sit under the forend, a Remington sling, a Mesa Tactical barrel/mag clamp with quick release swivels, a leapers saddle scope mount and a red dot sight (cheap and effective). A Tanks Rifle Supply oversize safety arrived today and a Mesa Tactical low tube telescoping stock kit is on the way. I will be adding a King Armory muzzle brake and a Sage International +3 mag extension asap.1×42
