What is required to mount a TRUGLO Dot Optic?

All of our dot optic sights require a weaver or picatinny style base to mount to a rifle or shotgun.


Our red dot sights do not mount on the shotgun rib, they need to have a receiver base installed if it is not already provided. The first thing you will need to determine is whether or not this firearm is already drilled and tapped to accept base mounts. If it is not, you will need to visit a local gunsmith to have this firearm drilled and tapped to accept either of these two styles of base mounts.


We’d recommend a quick trip to your local gunsmith and discuss the different base mount options available and if any gunsmithing work is required on your firearm prior to the purchase of one of our sights.
