Default Inexpensive shotgun upgrade

I added this HiViz front site to my single shot 20 gauge shotgun. It really helps my eyes.
From Amazon. From Amazon.

It slips on and is quite tight. The front is notched to accommodate the bead.

I'm going to be checking into this! Been looking for some sights for one of my 870s and this might be the compromise!

When I first built my Remington SBS, I bought a hi-viz sight that clips onto the top rib. It was plastic and also had magnets. It came with 4 different fiber tubes, and an extra magnet. As I was sending the third shot down range, I realized that I had no more front sight. Never did find it. So I returned the magnet and the 3 extra tubes to the store with the packaging. Told them it was junk. I then found a similarly designed sight but with a metal body. I really had to force it down over the vent rib. It hasn't budged since.

I hope your clip on stays put.

I replaced the bead on my 1300 with a fiber optic sight that screws in. I do like it better than the original bead, especially in low light.

Also a ghost ring would be good. Wally world has them cheap.

I am all about ghost ring sights, but those glow worms are cool and definitely the best plan B in my book.
