Default Shotgun Turkey Sights

I have a Remington 870 12 guage shotgun that I turkey hunt with. I would like to mount a red dot sight on it. Does anyone know of a good quality sight that can be mounted on this shotgun? Also, is it possible to mount myself or do I need to take it to a gunsmith? Weaver makes a sight mount that apparantly fits the Remington 870 but I don't know anything about it. If it matters, my shotgun is black and has a composite stock. Thanks.

I just bought the red dot gobblin dot sights & I love them!!! I can't help you with optics/scopes, but I'm sure several people will give you some feedback on these. I'm not a big fan of red dot scopes - but lots of people love them.

I know lots of people use dot style scopes and have good luck with them. I bought a tru-glo 2 years ago, and on my second hunting trip I jumped a longbeard up about 25-30 yards away in a cutover. Needless to say I couldn't even take the give-me shot because you have to turn the sights on! That sight spent the rest of the season rolling around behind the seat of my truck! LOL! Just something to think about.

My reciever was tapped so I installed it myself.

For an inexpensive option you can pick up a Truglo Dual Color red dot. For a more expensive option the Eotechs work really well.

Whichever one you choose just turn the thing on and leave it on for the whole hunt. Change the battery at the end of the hunting year and you are good to go.
