My first post...

I've been lurking and searching for the answer to this, but haven't come up with anything, so I'm asking directly:

I have an older Benelli M1S90 (imported by HK) Tactical (choke tube barrel) with the plain rifle sights. I don't have a hugely compelling need or want to go to ghost rings, but I would like to somehow improve the visibility and the overall height of the rifle sights. Painting dots/bars was unsatisfactory.

So, does anybody know of a good replacement set, maybe even something with tritium that wouldn't take extensive gunsmithing? It looks like the rear is an easy dovetail in/out, but the front is epoxied on and would give the most grief.

Thanks to all.

In a word, no. The front sight is silver soldered, not epoxied. There are clamp on front sights, but they are designed to be used with a ghost ring rear sight. I can't think of anything that could be done that doesn't require fairly expensive gunsmithing. You might contact Ashley Outdoors. I think they changed their name to Express Sights or something like that. If I come up with anything else, I'll post it here.
