Has anyone tried these with the standard size dot?

Like the concept, but many posts I read say the express sights leaves accuracy out in the cold. Could these give the speed and reasonable accuracy behind the express concept?

Depends what game your playing. For IDPA and such the sights are fine. If your shooting Bullseye,they aren't. I like the Prosights better,especially the new ones trhat are out with the interchangeable front blades.

Are there pictures available anywhere to view that sight you're referring to?

TIA :wink:

Morning gyp_c,

Good thing I was on another smoke break and saw your post! :wink:

Go to http://www.brownells.com . Click on "products". Enter "Ashley" in the manufacturer field. Hit "search". Page 2 of the search shows "Ashley Remington shotgun express sights."

This sight is exactly the same as the pistol version rear sight. The front sight is not shown, but it comes in a choice of two "bead" sizes. There is the normal sized one, and one that is roughly double the size of standard. I believe they are available in tritium.

OK, back to work now :wink: .

Thanks Shane...I have a bookmark for our favorite supplier of "everything gun", I'll check it...I've seen the fronts for the pistols BTW...I think I'd like to try the small dot...What about you?

Thanks again!

I've only tried these sights once on a friend's gun, but I found I could get a slightly faster sight picture with the Ashley set up. The shallowness of the rear notch (not really even a notch at all, but a shallow "V") almost encourages point-shooting because you really don't have a post-in-notch picture to worry about. Put the front bead on the target, and press.

My slow-fire target drills with the sight confirmed that they are not Camp Perry material. I gotta have that big ol' notch in my rear sight in order to get some semblance of groups. Didn't do too well with the Ashley with regard to this!

Then again, it was not my gun, so there were other limiting factors at work here as well.
