I've mounted a couple of scopes from Bushnell.

Try the Trophy and Sportman series.

I've got a Sportman 3-9 x 40 on an HR Ultra Slug Hunter

I've got a Trophy 1.75-4 x 32 on an Remington 870.

I looked for long eye relief.

Both work fine and I haven't been dinged in the eye by either shooting even those ungodly 1900FPS 385 grain Remington and Winchester loads.

Errol, Have you had a chance to shoot with your Bushnell Trophy scope yet? Do you like it? I'm looking at also getting a scope for my 12ga 870. My buddy swears by Leupold, but they seem a little too pricey for the shorter ranges of a shotgun. Thanks.

hi dand, i put off buying the trophy scope for my shotgun ,but i did buy another trophy series scope for my muzzleloader (50 cal.) so in all i own 3 trophy series scope for my : 22mag,30-30,50 cal. and on my 270 i put an elite 3200 with rainguard these scopes are to me very good quailty scopes and they hold their settings from year to year . before spring turkey season gets here i will get another bushnell for my shotgun either my 870 3in mag or even maybe the 11-87 i just got a month ago .
putting the scopes and mounts on is very easy just knock out a couple of pins and put mount on tighten the new screws .the fun part is sighting in the scope, move the entire pattern over to get it centered is easier than sighting in a rifle .

the model number i have is also good for shotguns according to bushnell the #is 73-3948 you can go to www.bushnell.com/productinfo/riflescopes/spec/733948 errol

Question....??
I have a nice older Wingmaster in 20 ga & want to use a B-Square saddle mount.... HOW does the saddle mount keep from marring the side of the receiver?______..
Thanks, Bob

hi bob, i honestly don't know because the mount is screwed to the side of receiver and it does not move at all and it will probalely leave a mark on it ,maybe some moisture can get in there to . i put mine on about 18 months ago and i have not had it off . sorry i can not give you better answer . errol

I have a Mossberg 500 12 ***** with a fully rifled hastings barrel and a Cabelas Pine Ridge 2.5-7x32 variable, In my opinion this is the best scope u can get for the money($70 i think) it is one tough little scope

Bob, You might try putting some of that camo tape on before you mount it, then you can allways clean it off with Goo Gone.

I would recomend a Leupold, they cost a nice chunk of change but whoa are they worth it!
