TRUGLO® Tru-Bead® Turkey Universal Dual Color Sight
excellent fiber optic sight
This is a great universal sight and worked out nice on my 870 express, however the installation was a little more tricky than the description said. My 870 had a pressed in front bead which required it to be pulled then the hole tapped. All of the hardware is included but nowhere did it say what tap size to use for the supplied screws. After some research I found out what size I needed. The tap size isn't an available size unless it's special ordered, but with a machining back ground I found a similar tap that would work. All in all it turned out okay...just woulda been nice to know ahead of time what COULD be involved.

Versatile, not universal.
This kit will fit many but not all shotguns. You must have a screw in sight bead post with one of 4 different screw threads. If you have a pressed in sight bead , you would need to drill and tap to install the front sight. The also give 4 different u shaped guide that are supposed to keep the mount fron the front sight from pivoting ot moving. They had one what measured to be for a 6mm wide rib, burt mine was a 7mm rib and the next size up was too big, so I filled in with a little JB weld expoxy and filled down to my 7mm. Mine was going on a Brwoning A-5 12 Mag. (Japan). I had emailed Tru-glo and they said it would fit my 7mm rib. So disspapointed it didn't really fit, but once I got it installed it looked like it would work.

Tru Glo get a better hardware vendor
This sight is an exceptional add on sight for my shotgun. It allows for an outstanding sight picture, which is great for shooting with the kids. However, the I needed to move the rear sight forward just a little bit and fount that the allen screw heads stripped out almost immediatley with very little pressure. I had to go to my local harware store and get replacement screws. The screws were inexpensive, but it was a hassle to have to fix what should have not been a problem in the first place.

the rear sights fit ok as long as you dont over tighten the screws because they tend to strip easily, the front however didnt fit well at all i have a bennelli nova 12 guage pump and the little bushings included in the package were a little too narrow to just snap over the rib and took some work with i file to fit properly after the instalation it works quite well and gives a great sight picture
