New Sight For Remington 1100?
 
I'm looking to get a new sight for my Remington 1100. The only thing I'm worried about is there is no rail built onto the barrel, and nothing that I can think of to attach to on the receiver. So my question is this, I'd like to put one on my shotgun for deer hunting this year, first year doing this with shotgun, and I don't feel comfortable with the bead at the muzzle to get the job done. Anybody have ideas on what to use?

Buy a barrel with rifle sights. Buy a saddle scope mount. Get the receiver drilled and tapped. Buy a SpeedBead. There are several options. THE most accurate smooth bored shotgun I have ever seen with slugs was a 1960s Wingmaster with a plain modified choke barrel with the bead sight. Guy could shoot 4-5" groups at 150 yards. I saw it more than once. Best I could do with it was about 8-10" groups. Never seen anything else similar come close.

well, I found a saddle scope mount. Do i need extended pins for the trigger assembly to mount the saddle mount? Also, I was initially thinking of using buck shot, but I figured out I can shoot rifled slugs with the smooth bore barrel. So I'm going to invest in some rounds and practice with them to see if I like them. Thanks

The saddle scope mount should come with machine screws that go all the way thru.
