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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
