Can the Ghost Ring EX Rear Sight be used alone?

Yes! It is great alone if you only want to mount a scope or you have a stock front rifle sight you just don't want to let go.

Does the rear sight work with the Remington 870 tactical receivers with pre-drilled holes (tapped)?

Currently the rear sight is designed for receivers that are not drilled and tapped.  A design that work with the hole positions and the Picatinny rail pattern is in the works. Sign up here to be notified when "Remington 870 tactical" are available for preorder.

Does the rear sight work with Mossberg shotguns?

The MX Rear Sight is the product you want!

Can the Ghost Ring EX Rear Sight be used with standard Remington rifle sights?

Yes! The stock rear sight needs to be removed (but leave the base on the barrel which is soldered on). The rear sight is designed to  line up perfectly with the front rifle sight.

I know how to drill and tap the receiver myself. Do you have the right one for this sight?

Yes! Order the drill and tap set

Where will the holes be on my receiver? Will the sight line up with my shotgun's profile?
