Aftermarket sights for stock rifle sights on my Rem 870

Post by rhythmgod » Tue Feb 21, 2012 8:29 pm

Hey guys!
I have a 20' rifle sighted barrel and am looking for some nice aftermarket sights for it. What are some good ones? And/or are there Ghost ring sights I can use to replace the old ones?

I have the same barrel as you and tried 2 sets of the aftermarket sights: Ameriglo Tritium Night Sights and Ghost Ring Firesight Set.

Here are blog posts about sights:

Ghost Ring Firesight Set is good but easy to brake. Ghost ring sight doesn't have protective ears and it was broken when my shotgun has fallen on the floor.

I use Ameriglo Tritium Night Sights for about 2 years and really happy with them.

never had the ghost ring sights but they look awsome on the 870
If you break into my house, be quiet, or ill wake up and unload on you.

Especially Vang Comp Systems / Wilson Combat sights, really like how they look.

I have an 18.5" rifle sighted barrel and use Trijicon brand night sights. They look exactly like the Ameriglo sights in the previous thread. You cannot go wrong with them.

I too have a 20with rifle sights. The only thing ive done is put on a TruGlo Fiber optic front sight instead of the brass blade. works very well for me as I couldn't see the front blade all that well.
