I put a saddle mount and bushnell scope on my rifled barrel 870. It helped a lot, but the accuracy falls off past 80 yards or so. It doesn't matter on the load, I'm minute of paper plate at 80 yards. Don't expect it to be a tack driver, but if it does, you can be pleasantly surprised. Good luck, and give us a range report when done.

They make shotgun scopes just to make more money....that rifle scope will last as long as the gun.....here in ohio we can only use shotguns or muzzleloaders to deer hunt with and I would say at least half of the shotguns used here has rifle scopes on them
