Hastings slug barrel sights

5 posts in this topic

I have a Hastings Paradox slug barrel for my Remington 1100 12 gauge. I don't care much for the factory rifle sights and was wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket fiber optic sight that would work. It seems all they make aftermarket sights for are Remington, Browning, and Mossberg barrels. I don't want to go buy any and not have the dovetails fit in my factory sights. Any info would be appreciated.

bring your sights with next time shopping and compare to the sights you want to buy

I have the same barrel for my 870 wingmaster, I've looked and cannot find any aftermarket sights so I took some hi-vis orange spray paint and a nail polish brush and put a layer on the tip of the sight, it helped a lot but you have to reapply daily because it wore off rather quickly. This year i'm going to buy some bright orange nail polish and see if that holds up better.

I found some paint online by the name of Bright Sights. You can order some that glows in lowlight conditions. They claim it's durable and won't chip off unless you scrape it off. I'm trying it out this weekend.

Looks like some good stuff, I'm going to have to give it a try.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
