Get on target in any lighting condition
By Joel Moranton
No matter what type of shooting you have your shotgun set up for, a TruGlo sight will improve your shooting experience. The fiber optic sight gathers all of the available light and focuses it into one point, giving you a highly visible point of reference. This allows you to focus on your target and quickly bring the firearm on target. Most of TruGlo shotgun sights are right around $20 and they have many different styles available to fit your personal preference.
We decided to try out two different styles of the TruGlo (www.truglo.com) sights, The Glo Dot II and the Fat Bead Dual Color. Both provide massive improvement over standard sights. Shooting clays with both sights decreased the time it took us to get on target. The Glo Dot II we put on our home defense shotgun, and turned off most of the lights in the house. In the low light the TruGlo sight still glowed bright enough for us to be confident that we can get on our target.
Installation was easy and took only a few minutes. The Fat Bead screws into the original sight hole and TruGlo has most thread pitches available for different shotgun manufacturers. The Glo Dot II is universal and simply snaps in place on most smooth barrels. They are both made of durable plastic and highly visible fiber optics to give you a reliable bright sight.
GO TRY A SET
The TruGlo sights are a no-brainer. For right around $20 you can improve your sight quality and if for some reason you do not like them they remove just as easily as they install. We have taken our Mossberg 500 to the range on several occasions and allowed all of our editors and range employees to try out the sights for themselves. Not one person disliked these sights, and they all said about the same thing about them. “I really like that sight, it is a major improvement over factory sights”.
