I think that Nikon has about the best quality optics at an affordable price.


BTW. What do you need a scope on a shotgun for? Are slugs effective that far out? Just wondering. I've never hunted with a slug gun.

It is a Moss 500. You should real consider a cantaliver mount to get the most out of that scope.

Does your scope mount attatch to one of the trigger assembly pins? Is it also drilled and tapped on top?

No it is a cantalever set up from hastings. There is a lever or a shelf that comes off the barrel and over the recever. So there is no room for play between recever and barrel the scope is atached to the barrel.

I'm just wondering how accurate that really is. I know your throwing a 500 grain slug down range and not threading a needle, but with how the barrel screws onto the end of the magazine tube if that keeper cap is just a little bit lose, it would throw off the whole mounting system.

It looks like a good system but like I said if the cap was a little lose (I catch my cap lose on my waterfowl gun once in a while It's a Winchester SuperX2) it could throw your whole zero out the window.

Is that a rifled barrel?
Okay I just looked at a few online and from how much they cost I would guess it to be pretty strong and accurate. I couldn't really tell from the photo you posted, and I always love seeing new gun stuff so I had to check it out!

I'm trying to find a rock solid mounting system for my marlin 45-70gvt.

You buy the barrel with the mount atached and tou mount the scope to that mount it is the closest thing to a bolt action you can get. That is why i recamend it.


I am shooting a 275 grain bullet a 1900fps out of a fully riffel 28in bull barrel i am threading needels the best you can with a shot gun. I can touch holes at 120yrds. Although it is like carrying a cannon. By the way it is an 870 wingmaster magnum.
