Thinking about a dedicated slug gun for deer hunting and was wondering about mounting options for an Eotech/Aimpoint. The remington shotgun factory scope mount looks pretty flimsy. Any comments about Eotech/Aimpoint for deer gun??

Thanks, Robert

One option is a good rifled barrel with catilever. Otherwise brownells has a nice looking mount that requires drilling and tapping.

The cantilever barrel is the best way to go.

Robert, The Remington cantilever mount is very sturdy. Have several friends that own them and have great success. I bought a 1100 with the mount on a fully rifled barrel but have not picked out a scope yet. I used a friends last year one day with a red dot. Didn't like it, will defiantly get a scope. MIKE.

You mean mount an EoTech like this:

This thread has several innovative ideas in progress that should be available in the next few months.

There is also a mount by KAC:

I have not handled the Remington mount, but in general if I am going to use a removeable mount on any kind of gun I start by looking at what B-Square has.

In the case of the 870, B-Sqaures saddle mount is good because it mounts to BOTH sides of the receiver. The screws go through one side of the receiver and thread into the other side of the saddle. Very secure and can be removed and will return to zero. If the gun is dedicated, put lock tite on the screws. I trust this mount. If you already own the gun and barrel you want to use, go this way. cost wil about $50

Even better would be to get a dedicated barrel like a Hastings or Remington with mount on the barrel.

Third, you can drill and tap receiver and add a piece of weaver rail etc.

I used a B-Square on my mossy for an OKO red dot.

I've mounted a gen2 Holosight on an 11-87 "new style" cantilever FR slug barrel for a slug gun for my wife. Works great. The standard comb stock may be a little low for you for proper cheek weld. Don't confuse the first gen Remington cantilever scope mount from a ~decade ago. They WERE flimsy. New ones are good.

I prefer a Leupold 2-7X shotgun scope myself on my dedicated deer blasting set-up.

Not to hijack the thread, but does the eotech sight (1moa dot with that huge circle) work realistically with say 00 buck rounds? Could you adjust the circle to cover near the same area the buck would spread? I've seen it done with adjustable flashlights, and thought doing it with something like an eotech would be kick-butt
