  • I have a scope on my slug gun with a see thru mount, but there is very little room to "see thru" anybody know of a good shotgun

    I have a scope on my slug gun with a see thru mount, but there is very little room to "see thru" anybody know of a good shotgun scope mount, where I can still use my open sites for those "brush busters".

    I never have liked see through mounts. They put the scope up too high. Having one is like you can't make up your mind what you want to do.

      Personally i've opted to just remove the scope and use iron sights on my slug gun. I figure if its too far away to shoot with iron sights why take the shot anyways.

        I have used one before and did not like it. As you stated, it was too hard to see the open sights through. My eyes are not that great anymore, so I want to use a scope. What I have found is that a low power, wide angle scope does the job for me. I like a two to four power with at least 50mm lens.

          A low power scope for brush busting would serve you well, a 2 power or an adjustable that starts at 2 then you can use the other for long shots. Don't rule out the red dots the magnification is usually low and they work great for quick shots.

            Thanks guys, yes I can't make up my mind. I hunt mixed woods, we hunt alone for a couple of days ( I still hunt) and then do deer drives a couple of days. Some open woods with distances up to 150 yards, some brush with 50 yard visibility. I have shot 4 inch groups @ 100 with Rem 870 and Simons 2x scope, and I have a set of true glow rifle sites underneath. Getting old, hard to see thru little space between scope and sites. Always looking for something better……
