I figure this is the best forum when discussing so-called ruggedness.

Any suggestions for the 'most robust' vent rib add-on adjustable rifle sights?

The sights will primarily be used for slug hunting in some remote wilderness areas, but also will be left on for home defense duty.

I was comparing TruGlo and Williams and found several reviews saying the sights were perhaps more fragile than expected and/or the fiberoptic inserts kept falling out, etc.

One would think that "fiberoptic inserts kept falling out" could be easily fixed with a drop of glue/hot-melt glue/epoxy, etc. Or, heating one end might also help.

Of course, I've read of people switching the sights out for different colors. I don't have an answer for that one.

Sorry, I am not a sight guy, just brainstorming. Good Luck.

I mean how rugged are we talking about? You do know that vent ribs get bent all the time right?

So no matter how the strong the sights are, the structure it mounts to will deform if you drop it.
