What is the problem with it Cranky? Just won't fit in the dovetail? If that is it, you need to do a bit of light filing. If so, file on the sight, not the dovetail itself.

Hey Cranky,
Take that thing back and go to Walmart. They sell one made by HI VIZ (hivizsights.com) that comes with 3 bases and 4 fiber optic "strings" in both neon red and neon green. They slip over the dovetail and are magnetic. I have them on my skeet and trap guns as well as my Coyote shotgun (loaded down with Dead Coyote loads) for the quick shooting in the brush. It sells for about $12.00 if my memory serves. Installs in 30 seconds. Let me know what you think.

I have one on a 870, it is not very hard to install but it does want to come off. Overall i'm not happy with it but, I do seem to shoot clays better with it.

Crank, you haven't indicated what the problem is?

Brian, I assume the site in installed in a dovetail? If so, remove the site, and tap a center punch in the bottom of the dovetail lightly. It will raise a very small welt. Then tap the site back in. The welt should hold it in place.

It mounts on the vented rail. I don't have dove tails.
