Install LPA Tact ghost ring sight set on 870 beaded front sight.

Post by Albrcommando » Thu Dec 08, 2016 7:47 pm

I purchased LPA Tact ghost ring sight set (same ghost ring sights on the Benelli M4 shotgun) to install on a beaded front sight 870.

I've seen on the forum how to install the rear sight ghost ring, I just don't understand how the front sight is (front sight base is solid) installed.

Thank you

Does your barrel have the bead on a raised pedestal, or is it directly attached to the barrel?

Yes, the bead on the raise pedestal.

I do appreciate the offer to take the time to help.

Thank you

Well, it looks like the front sight mounts directly to the barrel using solder, or maybe epoxy. You'll probably either have to sweat the bead's pedestal off, or mount the new sight in front of it. Might need to be a gunsmith job.

What's the exact sight set you bought, though? Do you have a product name or a manufacturer code so I can make sure I'm looking at the right thing? I've never worked with these sights before, so this is mostly conjecture.

Yeah, that needs welded - or maybe soldered or brazed - on. Probably going to need a gunsmith to get it put on and aligned correctly.
