Mounting a scope on my Remington Express

There's some public land near me, but the regs only allow one to use archery tackle or shotguns with slugs for hunting.  I have a Remington Express 12 gauge that has a screw in choke barrel.  I'm thinking of getting a rifled slug choke tube, but need something more than a bead at the muzzle for aiming.

The gun is not tapped and drilled for a scope mount, but does have a ventilated rib.  Does anyone know of a scope mount that I can attach to the rib?  

Also, any recommendations on what scope or aiming device such as a red dot that would be good for this?  I figure 100 yards would be an extremely long shot for this combo.  I have some scopes I could use, including an old Lyman 1.75 - 5x that I could pull from one of my rifles.

I want to minimize my cost to make this a reasonably decent slug gun, as I don't really know how much I would be using it.

I should also add that archery tackle is a no go for me.


Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
