TruGlo® Pro Series™ Magnum Gobble Dot™ Sights
I have a set of these on my Rem 870. I use them for both turkey hunting and deer. I like that you can adjust the windage and elevation to sight in slugs and they glow brightly during turkey season when the sun is just coming up. I bought this set as a gift for my son.

If it seems too good to be, it probably is. The rear sight went right on, no issues. The front was way too narrow as if it didn't match the rear's width spec. As I was looking it over for defects of some kind, the fiber optic piece fell out. Save your money and put it toward some other sighting system. Had to glue fiber back in and "modify" front sight base to even get it to go on rib. Rib is not the problem. I will bet the price of this piece of junk that recoil will be it's permanent demise at the patterning board and it will never see a hunt. I should've just thrown the money into the wind. The result would be the same.

works very well
I'm using these sights a bit unconventionally. Recently purchased a 14" TC Contender barrel used, in .45/.410, when it arrived it had no rear sight in the very small dovetail in the vent rib. Thompson was no help, so for the price I thought I'd try this route. The sights mounted up fine, Very bright and clear, and to my surprise the first round of Hornady long colt FTX at 50 yards was at 6 O'Clock, about 1.25 below the bull on a 10"
Shoot'n'See target. handed the pistol to my buddy, the first time he ever picked up a contender, and same result, off-hand at about 50 yards! Love these things!

Tru Glo turkey sight, disappointed
This is not a product for a serious hunter.
It was somewhat difficult to install, as I had to use the rubber shims to more or less force the sights to remain in place.
Sadly, after the third day of use, the light-gathering fiber optic material in the front sight simply fell out in the woods while I was hunting.. For the balance of the season, I was forced to hunt with an improperly fuctioning front sight. Making it very difficult to use in low light conditions.
I was reallty looking forward to using this sight this season, and it turned out to be a big disappointment, and something I'll need to drive to Bass Pro shop to return for a refund. This product is certainly not worth the $49.95 I pad for it.
