    I have a 1960 Browning Broadway with a red-orange tubular plastic front sight no longer than a quarter inch long, glued into a metal holder.

    First question: Can anyone tell me if this is, or is not, the original front sight?

    Second question: Does anyone know if the metal front sight holder is screwed in or glued, or staked to the rib?

    Many thanks.

    I don't know for certain on a '60, but the bead on my '66 Broadway was threaded. It kept coming loose and I had to lock-tite it.

    It is definitly not original, the original front site was a Bradley Style White one.

    I agree with the two preceding posts. My 1970 made Broadway has a standard white front sight; i.e., similar or identical to an old BT-99 front sight. It's threaded. BT-100dc
