Having a hard time connecting with my Purdey 12b, just can't seem to hit with it. I was thinking of mounting one of these:

I saw this sight on "Flyway Highway".

Do you think I'll have to drill and tap the top rib?

Yep, hose clamp would do it. You may stipple the barrels so the clamp won't slide around.

You must be joking, right Greg??? Gun likely does not fit you. Can you have stock bent so it fits?

Check the gun fit. I doubt that the barrels of a Purdey were not properly regulated. If they are replacement barrels or sleeved barrels, I would check that too.

I can't believe that you would put such an ugly contraption on a SxS. And when did you start looking at the barrels rather than the bird, that you think a "sight" is an Upland tool?

I will be coming west on the super slab the 17th. I should be passing through your neck of the woods around noon. Would you like to meet up for lunch?

Might just need to port the barrels. Muzzle lift might be the problem. Make sure you drill the holes back far enough so you can upgrade to screwing chokes later. I think putting a adjustable comb on the butt stock might be getting ahead of your self at this time. Morgan adjustable pads also help sometimes but I miss the fine looks of a white line recoil pad. And a wood butt stock with no pad just looks unfinished to my fine eye. wink

No need to port. Just get extended, ported choke tubes! You should first just duct tape the Eotech on. Then if you like it you can solder it in place. Oh, and where are the pictures?

IF you are not joking, NO, a friend of mine has one on his Pump and it is awful and near impossible to hit anything moving.
