recommend me a good front sight for my 3 gun shotgun

Recommended Posts

I like green as a color for fiber optic sights.   Can you recommend me a front sight?  Mine is worn out and I have no idea what it is.  It's on a winchester super x 2 which is basically the fn slp.  It has a type of green sight on the front and has two screws holding it on  They are probably 2" apart.  I don't think it's a fiber optic or I'd change it out.  It's glass type encapsulated so it's a little weird, but it came with the gun.  I just want to see what people are using out there.

 

Thanks.

I've been using the HIVIZ TriComp front sight for the last 5 years.  I use the green triangle light pipe.  For long slug shots, just use the tip of the triangle and for fast shots use the whole triangle.  It comes with several different colors in round and triangle.

I like my Champion EasyHit sight, esp as I'm partially cross-eye dominant.

Another vote for this one. I'm cross-eyed dominant too and this really helps out. It also let's you know if you have a bad head position on the stock

I had Briley install one of their front and rear sight sets on my m2.  The front sight is the same as many others except that it is dovetailed into the rib and can't come out.  I've had my front sight screw come loose on a stage and it was a big problem.  Their rear sight is really nice.  It's basically a rear sight milled in to the rib and is windage and elevation adjustable.  Check them out.

Another vote for the HiViz Tricomp. I like using the peak of the triangle for distance slug shots and the entire sight for bird shot.

I use the Hi-Viz magnetic sight. Attaches right over top your original bead. It stays in place and is really bright.

Word of wisdom on the hi-viz (or anything else with one screw, for that matter) - install it, take the fiber out, drill a hole in the back of it into your vent rib, and stick a roll pin in there. Otherwise you have a high likelihood of it being a sideways hi-viz in the middle of a stage one day!

Happened to me which is why I have the Briley sight. It is the same sight as the Hi-viz but is dovetailed into the rib and can't come out.

Have a dovetail cut in the rib and install a handgun front sight.  Dawson has a ton of heights available and they are easily replaced if you smash the heck out of it.  Easy to adjust for windage too.

The Hi-Viz magnetic one is a channel shape that goes over the rib. There's no way it's rotating. I've had it 3 yrs. and shot hundreds of rounds, birdshot, buckshot and slugs, hasn't come off yet.

I also like the champion one. It must sticks on with double sided tape so no permanent modifications but everyone I know with one has had it on for a long time. I though it would help with my cross eyed dominance and it might have, but I also had a briley rear sight machined into the barrel.
