    Aippi I just bought a remington 870p with the wood furniture. This came with the bead front sight. My question is the front sight bead pressed in? I don't see any flays on the front sight so i'm guessing it is not screwed in. Thank you

    Yes it is. I had mine drilled and tapped for a brass bead.

    You can pop it out with a pair of dykes.

    As stated above I just got a remington 870P with wood furniture. I plan on keeping this one pretty basic. I am going to put on a wilson combat +2 extension and a jumbo head safety and thats about it. I am debating if I want to change the front bead for a something easier to see in low light. But i'm not sure whats out there.

    XS systems is a solid choice.

    I think they make a XS sight that you can put right over the exsisting front bead of the 870 and it's held in place with epoxy. I would like to hear from some people who have tried this and i'm wondering how it has worked for them?

    XS is the only option I'd consider for a new front bead.

    Well guy's thank's for the advice. While at work yesterday I ordered a XS front sight for my 870P. I am still waiting for my wilson +2 extension and the jumbo head safety to come in. Can't wait to get it set up and go break it in. I'm thinking that XS sight should work good in low light and for ageing eyes.
