Don't know what a gunsmith would charge to install a set of sights but thats the way I'd go. How about a gift card for $100.00 twords a better rig for next year. Maybe borrow a gun to finish the season with.

what makes it a realy crappy gun? is there somthing wrong with it, or are you just not a mossburg fan? i totaly agree, if the gun is junk i would not even invest $100 to get a scope for it, but if its a nice mossburg you can do tons of things with them to make them nice hunting guns.

First off there's no such thing as a really crappy shotgun, If taken care of properly, all shotguns perform well.
a shotgun, unlike a long range rilfe doesn't require an expensive scope you should be able to locate a good red dot scope for well under 100 dollars.

here's one example, theBarska 2X30 Red Dot Scope # AC11090 only 59.94 at opticsplanet with free shipping.


Good Luck...

I just had my first scope failure in all the years of hunting. It is the cheapest scope I own a Tasco 3X9X40 world class that was on my TC in-line muzzleloader. At the time its all I could afford. Well there's a reason its was not expensive. Just buy the very best scope/optics you can afford. I got what I paid for and now its junk. Tasco was sold several years back and will not warranty it.

A cheap red dot may not be able to hold zero with the recoil of a shotgun though.

i have a bushnell reddot on my mossberg but it set up for turkey

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
