Looks real good.
Congratulations your a Gun Smith...
Looks real nice and professional.
Tell about the difficulty and the process and how the kit worked out for you, obviously it worked but was it a bitch to get out?
I couldn't get the stem from the old bead out, it was to small and broke of below the rib. The bit and tap are bigger than factory (6-48). I just drilled the old one out and tapped the bigger hole. Not hard just need to be careful not to drill to deep. I used a small bench top drill press and tried to make sure everything was level and square. I didn't like the white bead that came with the kit so I bought a truglo aftermarket sight, called long bead I think. Pretty close to original but just a little bigger, good enough. It comes with like 5 different screws you just pick the right size. I put some blue loctite on it too. We'll see how it holds up.
you don't need it!
Well aware but it was in my head that I wanted to fix it so I did.
Apparently I was wrong.
Looks pretty good. I prefer the Magnetic ones on all mine. I usually run them in bright fluorescent chartreuse in conjunction with the factory sight which acts as a stop to keep the Magnetic one from sliding off. Here in the Pacific Northwest we get a lot of Dark, Rainy, Fall, and Winter days especially at first light, when we are inundated with birds, at these times the bright sight become invaluable.
