There are some models of the 870 that come from factory predrilled and tapped for a scope mount, such as the 870 SPS Super Mag
The most dependable slide action of all time in a design that will go the distance with deadly precision, whether your target is the crease behind a buck's shoulder, a wily coyote or a big red head. The model 870 SPS Super Magnum Turkey/Predator w/scope is an all inclusive, all-camo package put together with devastating implications for birds at extended range and predators that close the distance. Along with the ambidextrous freedom and handling ease of our ShurShot® pistol grip stock with grip-enhancing overmolds, it features a highly maneuverable 20" barrel and a TruGlo® red/green selectable illuminated sight mounted atop its pre-installed Weaver-style rail.
