remington 870 mounts

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

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.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
