Shotgun sight

I'd like to put a fiber optic front and rear sight on my sons 870 express 20ga with a vent rib. I bought a TruGlo gobbler stopper today and found out its only held on with tape. I am looking for a better option than that and I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

Re: Shotgun sight

Try Amazon. Do a search for Shotgun Sight in Sports. They will show you a sight made by a company called "hi Viz". I have not bought one but I likely will closer to deer season. But.... at my age, I don't buy anything until I need it. I have already outlived my Dad & Grandpa so... well any way look at "Hi Viz"

Re: Shotgun sight

Truglo magnum gobble dot pro series, or Williams universal slugger sights. Both are held on by metal and screws(clamp type system) and both are adjustable for windage and elevation. You can find cheaper, but you probably won't find any more durable.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Re: Shotgun sight

The taped on sights hold up pretty well. Just make sure the surface is cleaned with a solvent like acetone to remove any oil.

Re: Shotgun sight

I have used both the Williams Firesights and the Truglow Magnum Gobble Dots. The Truglow's are an easy install and offer full adjustment.

The Williams I think are a bit better made sight. Both are bright and very user friendly.
