I have an older "no rib" 870 wingmaster 12 gauge. I want to put a red dot on it .

I have heard alot of good, and bad things about b square mounts.
Can anyone help out? Please give your opinion on the pro's and cons of the mounts?

I assume you are talking about the "saddle" type mount that goes over the receiver and uses the action pins to mount--yes?


If that is correct--and this is coming from an engineer who has no first hand experience with that "device"--but one thing I have found to be close to full proof is--if it looks like a shoemaker made it--he probably did


So--if you hold shoemakers in high regard--it might be a good idea

I had a BSquare on an 870 Wingmaster-Deer, slug gun.
I wasn't really satisfied with the way the gun looked but the real problem was the sight plain was too high for me. I had the gun drilled and tapped for my scope and never regretted it..

I have an 870 super mag(3.5")12ga. with a b square mount and a bushnell trophy red dot.It works great for turkeys!! The nice thing about the B square mount is if you need to shoot the gun without the scope you can still see the bead under the mount,just in case your battery goes dead.

Aimpoint 9000sc red dot scope. 50,000 hours on the battery. Had mine four years now, still the original battery! Turkey hunting as well as predator hunting at night.
