Duck Buster: Dead Ringer’s Shotgun Sight for Duck Hunting
By: Dead Ringer
Shotgun sighting while hunting and shooting ducks is inherently simple and difficult at the same time. Acquiring the target, moving your eye and hand to the target, and executing the shot on a flying duck happens quickly. While this action may sound easy to complete and is easy to talk about, it can be challenging to successfully complete a shot on a flying duck. Many biomechanical functions must take place in mere seconds for a shot on a flying duck to meet its mark when firing a shotgun, before the target is out of range. Target acquisition by your eye, distance measurement to the target, trajectory of the duck’s path, and speed of the duck on its trajectory must all be compensated for quickly.
Utilizing a shotgun sight, especially a shotgun sight for duck or waterfowl hunting can provide the hunter with an additional tool to get on target, and make the shot count. The Dead Ringer Duck Buster shotgun sight is designed specifically with the duck hunter in mind.
Dead Ringer’s Duck Buster is a two part (rear and front) shotgun sight set. The shotgun sight is built to replace the front bead sight on your shotgun’s rib, and provide a rear oval shaped sight that attaches to the rear of your shotgun’s rib as well. These two sights working in conjunction during the hunt will help you bring down more ducks. The low profile mounting system and small diameter optical locating devices make it ideal for all weather conditions.
The unique oval shape of the rear sight picture of the Dead Ringer Duck Buster is designed to provide the perfect built-in shotgun lead. A bird’s wings horizontally touching the left and the right compass points of the rear sight is approximately at the 30-35 yard range. Most non-toxic shotshells fired through modified to full choke shotguns are accurate and lethal at this distance.
The Duck Buster sight housing is manufactured 100% from T-6 aircraft aluminum, which is rigid and durable to outlast other brands built from fragile plastics. The shotgun sight’s orange ring is made from optical Lexan and incorporates large compass points for trouble-free viewing and easy optical acquisition by drawing light to the hunter’s eye.
The Dead Ringer Duck Buster sight is fully adjustable for both windage and elevation, making it customizable to find the true zero for your shotgun, choke, and load combination.
Early mornings in the duck blind, and passing ducks working into your decoys make trips to the field enjoyable and memorable. By utilizing a shotgun sight developed specifically for duck hunters, you can up your odds at hanging ducks on your strap and filling your limit this season.
