New and Improved, Lightweight Mini-Scout-Mount ™ for Remington ® 870
(both plain & vent rib barrels)The solid performance of the Mini-Scout-Mount 870 has now been upgraded with a LOWER PROFILE and LIGHTER WEIGHT without giving up any of the function and features of the original design.
Now you can upgrade your trusty 12 Gauge Remington ® 870 to accept a modern sight system and tactical flashlights. With a red-dot sight or pistol/scout scope, you can get the most out of your favorite tight choked turkey gun or slug barrel. This rugged aluminum mount bolts onto the 870 barrel in minutes with NO modifications to the gun!
Works with all fore end styles and allows you to change barrels on your shotgun without losing the zero on your sighting system. Good for left-hand and right-hand shooters. TWO models are available.
The Plain Barrel version will fit any 12 gauge Remington ® manufactured smooth barrel, including slug barrels equipped with Remington ® rifle sights. Just remove the rear sight slide and the Mini-Scout-Mount ™ 870 will drop right over the rear sight ramp.
The Vent Rib model will fit all of the Remington ® manufactured vent ribbed 12 gauge barrels. Our 870 mount WILL fit the 870-Super Express Magnum (3 1/2" shell) just like all of the other 870 12ga barrels.

STEP #1 BE POSITIVE THAT YOUR SHOTGUN IS NOT LOADED
When combined with our Tactical Light Mount Kit ™ install a flashlight for home defense or patrol duty. With all of the features of the proven Mini-Scout-Mount ™ design, you can take a flexible and reliable 870 to a whole new level of performance.
It is your BEST solution for attaching a flashlight or laser sight to your Mini. Add a pistol scope or red-dot sight and you have one of the fastest handling scout carbines ever assembled!
A: All SMOOTH BORE 12 gauge barrels, including the 3.5 inch Super Magnum. It will NOT fit any brand of RIFLED 870 barrel.
A: About 5 minutes.
A: NO…but it will get warm.
A: NO. In fact, since the mount is installed only on the barrel, you can change the barrel to a different gun and still be zeroed.
A: Scout or pistol scope styles will work best. We recommend a pistol scope. They are more compact and have longer eye relief, which allows better peripheral vision.
A: No. The Remington 870 scope mount will fit on any 870 barrel. We are currently working on a Mini-Scout-Mount for the Remington 1100 and 1187. Check the website for new product announcements.
A: The 870 mount weighs 7.5 ounces, and 11.095 inches long.
A: It is my understanding that all of the rifled slug barrels sold by Remington are made by Hastings. By necessity, all rifled slug barrels are much thicker, including the tube hanger lug. Unfortunately, our mounts will not fit anyone's rifled 870 barrel.
