Just picked up my 870P from the smith. Had tracloks installed, looks real nice and I will test tomorrow.

I know it's a sg but I'm used to peeps and the aperture seems huge. Anyone have any ideas for a quick insert to narrow it down?

It's not threaded. Thanks -Coop

That would negate the premise behind the ghost-ring sight system. The ST/Wilson sight has the smallest aperture of any shotgun-specific GR sight that I'm aware of. I suppose you could have a gunsmith tap the inside of your aperture for lyman apertures, but I wouldn't. Think about it, your "tactical" shotgun is a close range weapon, one that will most likely be used in lowlight conditions. Closing down the aperture will do two things: 1. It will reduce the amount of light available to your eye. 2. It will occlude your view and slow you down.

Right ! The ghost ring is designed to be fast , and accurate too !! It's not a target sight .For a rifle I've installed peeps with as large as 1/4" hole and that's provided excellent accuracy for hunting. Leave it as is .
