View Full Version : Ghost ring sight...

March 4, 2011, 04:10 PM
I decided to get a dedicated HD shotgun project started. I am starting with a S&W Model 3000 with Speed Feed stocks. I just ordered a magazine extension for +3 for a total of 8 shots.

Now I am looking for a set of Ghost Ring style sights for it. Any recommendations? So far I only have $200 in the project. Trying to keep this as inexpensive project as possible.

Thanks in advance,


Here is a pic of it with the Speed Feeds on...Mag Ext should be here Monday:

Lot of things that could be talked about here.
But, to help with the basic question first. I would prowl the gun shows and look at the parts dealer table. Or contact Numrich.

Now, with a shotgun, in the house, at night......do you really anticipate needing 'X' ring accuracy? And, in the dark, how are you going to see the sights?

The front sight on my shotgun ghost ring set up is very easy to see in low light. It is like a TruGlo. That front sight is much more visable than the Tritiom sites on my handgun.

I completed a low light/night class (handgun, rifle and shotgun) and a guy had a 500 with a Ghost Ring set up that was very fast on acquisition. It was treated with a tritium liquid sort of like a guy sells on here.

Not only good for HD but great on close quarters coyotes I would think.

I found the ghost ring sights to be much faster - for me - to get on or close to a target than just a front bead sight.

IMHO ghost rings are pretty useless for HD. At the range we are talking a bead is all you need. Heck, you may not even need a beat... just sight down the barrel.
