    What are the odds that someone here will know?

    Does anyone here know what the thread pattern is on the front brass bead from a Ranger Folder single shot shotgun?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Is that a universal NO on behalf of all members? I only want to mount it on a sawn off (coach gun) for cowboy action so if worse comes to worst I will drill an undersized hole and ram the bugger in with a bit of lock tight for good measure.

    Unwind it and have a look Rushy!
    Why would you want to change it? I reckon those old brass beads look great.

    I have just brought a replacement bead for the purpose of putting it on a sawn off side by side.

    Though it may seem sacrilegious.....maybe you have to get creative with a small file and some loc-tite? It's only cosmetic really.

    Sometimes they had no thread

    They were just an interference fit in the hole

    Take it out and have a wee look

    the brass screws in light fittings seem to fit well enough,they also fitted the trigger guard on old winchester .410 too... agree that you can get away with allsorts with a dob of glue...

    Just jam a matchstick in the hole and cut it to length. You can paint it dazzle if you want

    Bad neighbourhood?
    Most guys with sawn off shotguns don't advertise it on the interweb Rushy.
    Overkill is still dead.

    Then you could light it and use it as a night sight as well.

    I can't understand why anyone would want sights on a sawn off 10yard shotgun. Except maybe @Maca49
