Forward of the rear sight is a 5.25-inch section of “Picatinny” rail for mounting an optic. I’ve been resistant to red dots on shotguns simply because I considered them unnecessary, but recent testing has shown me that they are indeed faster than other sighting systems, and provide added functionality when shooting slugs. For testing I mounted the new RFX 35 reflex sight from Viridian. It features a green 3 MOA dot and a sizable 22x26mm window, and uses an RMR footprint. MSRP is $289.
