870 scope mt

What the best Rem. 870 scope mount to buy or should you just drill and tap one on.

Buy a cantilever barrel. Since the barrels are not threaded into the action they an move. If the scope is on the receiver and that happens your zero point moves.

yes if you plan on using it as a slug gun a cantilever mount barrel would be his best bet...

Re: 870 scope mt

if your gonna use what you already have, just get a b-square saddle mount. if you want a new barrel, get the cantilever setup.

The B-Square is the way to go. The single side mounts can get brush in the side and put the scope way off.
