    Wanting to get fiber optic beads for my tm-1 and citori. Who knows what thread for the beads on either gun. Also your advice or preferences on different fiber beads or tubes.

    I put a Tru Glo fat bead on my Beretta auto, but it doesn't work on a concave rib
    because the ends of the bead will rub against the rib when you try to tighten it down. Get the Tru Glo sight that actually slides onto the rib. You don't have to worry about getting it lined up right or stripping the threads.
    Avoid the ones that stick on with double sided tape because they get bumped out of line. I don't like the magnetic ones either.

    Buy the HiViz comp sight set. This low profile package comes with 7 light pipes - 3 sizes of both green and red + a white in compact case. The base comes with 5 screws for most bead applications.

    Same setup Browning uses for its 525 shotguns. I used it on my 425 and now on my BT99.

    Do you want to see the bead or the bird? You shouldn't be looking at the bead because if you are your not looking at the bird. I'm not trying to be sarcastic just trying to help.
