Ghost Ring Sights

Custom Remington 870 Police

When somebody asks me what I should do to my shotgun one of my first suggestions would be to add ghost ring sights. For many shooters, myself included, the ghost ring sight is one of the fastest types of sights for target acquisition. It is fairly accurate, easy to use, and obscures the target less than nearly all other non-optical sights. Because of this, ghost ring sights are commonly installed on combat shotguns. In my opinion, the ghost ring sight is the fastest and easiest to use shotgun sight available.

Staked Front Sight

My favorite ghost ring sight is made by Scattergun Technologies. It requires drilling and tapping of the receiver for the rear sight and the front sight is epoxyed on over the existing bead sight at the front of the barrel. I usually go a step further on my installs and stake the front sight through the bead sight so it doesn’t fall off during heavy use.

If you are thinking about having these sights installed on your Remington 870 or 11-87 or just have questions feel free to e-mail me or give me a call. The sights usually run around $115 to $150 dollars from Brownells and I charge $90.00 to install them, that includes staking the front sight.

NEW GLOCK 42

The new Glock 42 completely broken down before trigger work. Click on the image for a larger view.

Hey all, I did my first Glock 42 trigger job today. I have posted a photo below of the Glock 42 broken completely down. It is a great gun to shoot, very smooth trigger much better than the other 380’s in it’s category. It is comparable to the Kahr PM9 and the Kimber solo. It was very accurate at 25 ft with the stock Glock sights and great with follow up shots with very little perceived recoil. This would be a great pistol for a LEO backup or a very nice CCW summer carry gun.
