I Tested The Best Laser Sight For Mossberg And Remington Shotguns

Highlight: Easily installed, so no gunsmithing required.

Helpful review: "Awesome system - really a must-have for any shockwave. Installation took about 5-10 minutes (including the time it took to clear off the desk), and took about 30 seconds to dial in the laser to match the front bead sight.
One thing I recommend for anybody installing this, put a light coat of oil on the receiver where the saddle will be covering it. It's designed for battery replacement without having to remove the saddle, so if you don't throw a coat of oil on it during the install, it might be a while before that surface sees any oil. I saw a couple of people ask if they can install this on a 20ga shockwave, and saw the answer of 'NO'. This is not an accurate answer (at least not anymore).
Maybe the first revision of the product didn't come with the shim and spacer washer. But the one I just received did come with a shim and spacer washer for the 20 gauge. So yes, if you order this CT item on Amazon, it comes with the hardware required to install on the 20ga. version of the shockwave.
Overall - very impressed. CT did their homework with this system and put together a really good product. I don't think you can do any better, regardless of price." — Mike Wasiukiewicz

Trending review: "I installed this on my Mossberg 590s Shockwave. A breeze to install by following the instructions and watching some YouTube 'How to' snippets. So bright! Clearly seen in the daylight, and even when my 1000 Lumen Streamlight TL-Racker fore-end light is on, the green dot is still clearly seen in the middle of the light circle.
I haven't been able to photograph that as my camera can't handle the brightness of the Racker.
The azimuth and elevation adjustments make zeroing it out very straightforward also. Excellent all around.
I had one missing screw which either wasn't included or somehow disappeared when I opened the box. The customer service I received from Crimson Trace was nothing short of world class! They sent one out to me asap. Well done!" — Joe F.

Reassuring review: "Laser is tight and well focused. It remains that way even as distance increases, seemingly staying sharply focused at any range I pointed it out too (upwards of 50 yards). That would ultimately be useless if it didn’t stand out against its surroundings though. However, the green laser is VERY visible during the day at any distance you’re likely to use it for, probably even further than you’d expect.
For night time use, I have it paired with a 1000+ lumen flashlight and the laser does not get washed out whatsoever. In fact, they compliment each other very well. Anyone on the other end of this set up would be put at a severe disadvantage with how bright these two attachments are. Ergonomically the pressure pads are very well thought out too. I particularly like that the one furthest back on the receiver is in a great spot to use if short-stocking. It’s more likely designed to be used as a palm switch though. Think where the index finger connects to palm (ball of your index finger? Ball of your palm?) The middle position is the most direct to drop right to the trigger. The most forward is right where you’d want it if you had your index finger laying flat and extended fully down the receiver.
Another reviewer was complaining about wanting some big blotchy laser instead so that target acquisition would be easier, and even going as far as to bash this product over that preference. I strongly disagree with that assessment and think this has been money well spent on a well-designed, high-quality, and functional product." — James G.

Updated review: "I have a green one and a red one. Both are great. The green one is considerably brighter in daylight but it really gobbles batteries. Both use the same batteries, but the green one takes four of them and the red one takes two. Those two batteries in the red one last longer than the four batteries in the green one. Buy the green one for shooting on bright days, the red one for everything else.
One real benefit of this style of sight is that your shotgun will slide in and out of a sleeve or scabbard without snagging.
You can buy a laser boresight for around $15 and that makes sighting it in ridiculously easy. Turn on both lasers, adjust two screws on the sight (required Allan key is included) and your gun is sighted in perfectly in less than 30 seconds." — David Barrone
