    so, if i get a weaver base, and an optic with weaver rings, will i need anything else to mount the optic to the shotgun?

    I mounted a red dot scope to my 870 express using a Weaver rail mounted to the receiver using screws thru the holes already in the receiver where the take down pins go. The scope mounted right to the rail using the weaver mount that came with the scope. Works perfectly.
