remington 870 mounts

10 posts in this topic

Okay, I got a low profile (projection type, not a tube style) red (Contact Us Please) "scope". I bought a b-square mount, but my problem is that when I bring the gun up, I have to raise my cheek up to almost the top of my jaw. Now before I run a 12 ga. slug down the tube, will I take a tremendous jolt to my face due to the fact that my cheek is not in on the stock?

Also, does anyone know of a mount for my 870 that doesn't give you 1/2" rise from the receiver?

thanks for the help

I forgot to mention that I have a thumbhole stock on my shotgun right now so I am not sure if the stretchy sleeve will work

after beating the brush with it last fall grouse hunting, she still looks brand new. It is amazing how hard (and heavy) that laminate is.....

I am by no means a gun expert, but I think I recently experienced something similiar. I think you should find a new stock that doesn't have that rise in it. Would that fix the problem? I also believe their is a "wedge" to buy that will change the angle of your current stock. That might work also.

Good looking gun. Good luck!

If I lower the heighth of the stock, chin will end up on the stock, I need a lower saddle mount

My experience with the B square is not positive. I found that they did not hold up to the recoil of a hard kicking 870 slug gun. The other issue is that every time I fired the gun, the edge of the bracket would recoil back into my trigger hand just below my index finger. It actually drew blood. If I were you, I would do two things: 1) Have your reciever tapped for scope mounts and 2) have your trigger adjusted. I think you will be happy with the results and it should take care of your main issue. Also - a good quality scope on a slug gun is a must due to the heavy recoil. Good luck!

I think it would be around $100 give or take. Another option would be a canteliever slug barrel.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
