I would like to change the white front bead sight on my 11-87 to one of the high visibility models. Is the one on the gun a screw in or press fit? If it’s a screw in I see no problem. However if it is a press fit that will be another matter. Has anybody out there done this? If so do you have any suggestions as to brand and model hi visibility sight is best? Thanks for your help.

I bought a Hi-Viz Birdbuster that sticks to the barrel rib with magnets. About $20.

I bought two of them on sale at Wally World foir $10, and so far I have yet to notice them except at the range in direct sunlight. I can't see that they have affected my shooting any at all, so I guess I am going to take them off. :( At least it was a fairly cheap lesson.

I bought a new 11-87 in 2009, and the front bead sight fell out.
Remington sent me a new one and it screwed in. Hope this helps.

Is this the one you got?

Hard to believe you can't see it. I use mine mainly to make sure I'm getting my head down on the stock; after that, I look for the bird.

Oh, you thought they would help you hit things? :)

Leave the site there. Practice your gun mount, over and over. You should not see the front site. Look at the target, if you see the barrel you are not seeing the target.

Yes, that's the one I got. I guess it works, I just don't look at the sight. What I would like to find is an optical red dot sight that has a good sturdy mount, is tiny, and weighs about two ounces. I used a Weaver Qwik-Point many moons ago and it was awesome - results wise. With the dot and the bird in the same focal plane you put the dot where you want the shot to go, and it do. Greatest aid to long range shotgunning I ever saw. But the Weaver was heavy, awkward, and the mount was an ongoing issue.
