A shotgun forum for basic gun smithing, repair, modifications, and all other detailed shotgun information.
My shotgun is Remington Sportsman 58, 20-ga. with standard 12-ga. steel receiver that has 0.210” tickness on top. Can I drill and tap 2-holes (all the way trough) on top of receiver to mount pickatinny base 2” long for Burris Fast-Fire sight? Will these holes weaken the receiver ?
The screws that will hold pickatiny will be 6-48 and flush on the inside of the receiver and 7/8” apart.
I use mostly 3” 1-oz shells in this shotgun at 1330fps factory loads of steel shot.

Have done many in the past, no problems what so ever.
I drill 4 holes for the Remington shotguns.
Thousands on the boat.
Hundreds on decoys.
Time away from the wife....priceless
