I'm looking on getting a set of these for my 870 HD. Wilson Combat's website stated that the intall was easy. What does that mean? Am I going to have to take it to a gunsmith to drill and tap the receiver for the sights or are they held on some other way? I want to be able to do this myself. My local gunsmith has less than impressed me with his long turn around time and substandard workmanship.

Thanks, Flip.

You do have to drill and tap 2 holes . You can use a hand drill if your careful. You will need the tap and driver too.They give you a template. It is easy if you ever tapped a hole before(hint : keep tap clean and go in slowly and STRAIGHT AND HOLD ANGLE CAREFULLY). I put locktight under the sight too. Consider the other brands that use a banded front sight , this make things easier with no drilling or soldering and the sight wings are a lot more rugged. Yo Puedo!
