    So I have a Rem 870 with a parkerized barrel with a ramped bead sight on it (as this is an Express model, I assume the bead is pressed/soldered and not screwed in). It's an HD shotty, but the bead just isn't doing it for me - I can barely see the thing. I know there's the option of painting the bead with white/yellow/whatever paint, but I'm wondering what other sight options there are out there.

    I'm really interested in this TruGlo TG131SG TFO front sight:

    Problem is, I have no idea how it mounts. I've seen mentioned that it mounts with two screws, which makes me believe that the barrel would need to be drilled/tapped to accommodate?

    If that's the case, would it be completely janky to fab up a baseplate to bolt it to, and then do something like epoxy/jb weld that to the barrel?
