Picked it up last saturday after the "11" day wait. Knoxx SpecOps showed up today, bought a sling, and picked up a rail from work.

Top barrel and stock is my hunting/clays setup. Bottom is for HD and zombie invasion.

Rail fits perfectly! no modification needed, just screwed out the little screws on the receiver and screwed in the new ones.

Now all I need is a few recommendation for optics. Preferably open red-dots.

did you put some loctite on your screws? it might help in the long run with the constant recoil.

Someone suggested that to me as well. I will in fact loc-tite it as soon as I get a chance to.

Where do you work at to get the rail?

Nice boob stick by the way.

I work at an Airsoft retailer. Got the rails off broken guns in our RMA dept. Thanks :)

I have about 4 more rails that I can send out to any takers. Free of charge, just pay shipping, $5 should cover most places. Not really "for sale" just giving out free stuff.

screwed on a rail to the forend and slapped on a surefire on a scope ring.

Knoxx stock is awesome! It really does cut the recoil down.

Very sweet. Maybe a nice Trijicon Reflex on top?

Out of my price range for a red dot for my shotty. Looking for $50 and under, doesn't need to be fancy, just needs to hold it's zero somewhat.

Aren't you gonna have trouble with a RED Dot holding it's zero (on a shotgun of all guns) if it's under $50? Not a dig, just curious?

Doesn't that sling block the light?

As of now at least, thats the most I'm willing to spend on a red dot. In the future, when I can afford it, I'll probably get a Trijicon or similar red dot or reflex.

I had some problems the first few minutes I put the light on, but I managed to get the sling loop in the front to go off to the side, out of the line of the light.

Why didn't you get this one, instead of the rail light?

Because the rail was free, scope rings were $5.

As opposed to $250. I'd say that's an OK trade off, no?

thanks!

Went to the LA gun club last night and fired some slugs. The rail on the forend really abuses my hand, so I took it off. I guess its surefire for me, when I can afford it.
