    I broke the bead off my SBEII. I know I know you don't need a bead and I dont look at it when I'm shooting except maybe a still target but I'd like to have it there. Its broke of in the barrel so nothing to grab to try to unscrew it. I'm not interested in any of the magnetic sights they are too big. I really would like to have something small like the factory one on there. Anybody got any ideas?

    I'm aware and I already said that. But I would like to fix it.

    I remember as a kid, cutting a beaded sewing pin head with a bit of the pin still left and using locktite to glue it in.... Many moons ago, but as I recall it worked fine on my Wingmaster 870.

    You can get a kit from Brownells for around $15 with the drill and tap you need to fix it, front sight thread size will be different but what they sell is pretty much standard with plenty of options available. If you don't feel comfortable doing it take it to gunsmith but if you can use a drill and turn a tap it's not hard to do at all.
