Last time I saw one, the Wilson front sight is epoxied OVER the original Remington bead base, and is cross-pinned.

This seems to be pretty durable, but not a durable as the factory version where they actually braze the sight on.

My Wilson/Trijicon front sight was installed with J-B Weld instead of the epoxy that came with it. I also had a friend pin the sight though the old pedestal. While I am not about o try to knock the sight off, I doubt that I could. It is really on there.

I am not a fan of the Trac-Loks. I prefer the models with the protected rear aperture, i.e., every other sight on the market.

Believe it or not, I have the Mossberg sights on my 870, and they are extremely durable. I had the barrel drilled and tapped to mount the front post, as well as epoxied.

Hi Boom,
I have taken my Wilson Shotgun to the range now and the sights work great did not shoot loose, and look like they are on there for good! Probably shot 100 00buck and 50+ rifled slugs. No problems at all. I needed a shotgun that would stand up well to a salt water environment, that is why the Wilson.
Just my observations. I would like to put an EoTech on it but don't know anyone around here that would install it...
