Firearm FAQ's

Q: How do I know the correct size sight for my shotgun?
A: Please click on the Gun Chart tab.

Q: Does TRUGLO offer front bead replacements for shotguns?
A: Yes. We make various styles of front beads. Each is available in universal models or in specific thread sizes. Please click on the Gun Chart tab to find the model you need.

Q: How do I remove my original shotgun bead?
A: Most beads can be removed by turning them counterclockwise like a screw. However, a few beads are press fit into the rib (like the Remington 870 Express). Press fit beads require the rib to be tapped after the bead is removed. If you are uncertain, please contact the gun manufacturer.

Q: How do your sights mount to my gun?
A: We offer a variety of mounts that include 3M tape, magnets, dovetails and screws. Please check the product description for specific information.

A: Yes. We make sights for Remington, Winchester and other manufacturers. Please click on the Gun Chart tab to find the model you need.

Q: Do you offer sights for tapered or ventilated shotgun ribs?
A: Yes. We offer universal sights that mount on top of the rib (like the "GLO•DOT" and "GOBBLE•DOT" sights). These sights eliminate any sizing problems and are ideal for double-barrel and O/U shotguns. Please click on the Gun Chart tab to find the model you need.

Q: When installing a front and rear sight set, where should the rear sight be mounted?
A: In general, the rear sight should be located as far as possible from the front sight (while still being able to properly mount the rear sight to the firearm).

Q: What do I do with the rubber pieces included in the "Pro•Series Magnum Gobble Dot?"
A: The rubber squares can be used as a shim on slightly undersized ribs or as a protective cover for the rib.

Q: Do I need to clean the rib before mounting a sight with double-sided tape?
A: Yes. It is best to clean the rib with a small amount of rubbing alcohol prior to applying the tape.

Q: When cleaning my gun, can cleaning solvents be applied to fiber optic sights?
A: Although we developed our sights to be as strong and chemical resistant as possible, it is best to protect the sight when using chemical solvents.

Q: What type of shot can I use with your turkey choke tubes?
A: Our turkey choke tubes accept Hevi-Shot, lead, bismuth or copper-plated shot. Do not use tungsten or steel in any turkey choke tube.

Q: What type of shot can I use with the TITAN choke tube?
A: The TITAN will accept steel, tungsten and other popular waterfowl loads. Please note that when using these loads in the TITAN, do not use a setting tighter than "modified."

Q: Where can I find the constriction or inside diameter of your choke tubes?
A: This information is listed on the product packaging and is available under the CHOKE TUBES product section.

Q: What size shot should I use in my turkey choke tube?
A: Results will vary depending on the specific choke tube, the shotgun and the type of shell. In general, the best test patterns where achieved using Nos. 4, 5 or 6 with a 1 3/4 ounce load in a 3" shell.
