How tough is tough? Several weeks ago, I called Jeff McNail, Vice President of Sales at Truglo, to ask just how tough the Micro-Tac Laser Sight was. I wanted to try a laser sight on a new 12 gauge Mossberg 590 Shockwave. Jeff knows all their products inside and out and he assured me that the Micro-Tac was one tough sight and could take what the Shockwave could throw at it.

What's that saying, "Trust but verify?" In a few days I had a Micro-Tac TG630R red laser sight ready to install on the Shockwave. The Micro-Tac is designed to be mounted on a rail under the barrel. In this case, I simply flipped it over and mounted it to a Weaver base on the receiver. All buttons are still readily available and frankly, other than "TRUGLO" being upside down, it looks pretty slick.

It took literally seconds to install and the laser beam was centered right over the front bead. A trip to the range proved that it shot where it was pointed and the laser beam really helps you get on target quickly when the gun is held at the hip and fired, as intended.

My son, 2 grandsons, my wife and I have fired scores of 12 gauge rounds of all kinds through the Shockwave with the Micro-Tac attached. It has held zero and there are no signs whatsoever of any changes to it. This combo rides with me each time I go to the range, to our hunting property and rests close to my bedside each night.

Reliability is what we all are looking for when it comes to defensive weapons systems. The Mossberg 590 Shockwave and the TRUGLO Micro-Tac provide that reliability and the confidence we need in such a system.

One last word about the Micro-Tac sight. I chose the red laser model because I consider the Shockwave to be mainly a home defense weapon and that it would most likely be used in low light situations. The green laser model TG760G, might better serve you if you anticipate using it in full light as well as low light situations. Either way, it's a great sight and one I'd recommend to any shooter.
