I have an older Ithaca model 37 lightweight, that has lost it's front flouresent bead. How do you adhere a new bead?

Thanks.

It's threaded into the barrel.

Is there a threaded hole or did the sight break off leaving the base in the barrel?

Re: replacing front bead

You can buy replacement beads. I bought one last year at Bass Pro. As Dogface said it should just screw in the threaded hole

Re: replacing front bead

I just checked the barrel, and yes there is a hole where the bead should be, but, the problem is that I had a choke system put in a few years back, and I don't think that there is enough metal left in the barrel. Is there a way to anchor the bead other than screwing it in ? i.e. glue or solder ?

Can you see any threads?

There were some fiber optic sights that used double faced tape. You may be able to try one of those.

Re: replacing front bead

Again I'll have to check, the barrel is mighty thin though.

Re: replacing front bead

They usually are thin and there may only be a couple of threads but that is enough. If you do I check and get the thread size. There are some differences.
