    Just be careful...they can rotate and if you don't notice it then you are screwed, and that's not a pun.

    If you want something smaller, Brownells has a Bradley screw-in front sight with a red or green fiber optic. The end of the bead is about 3/32", but gives a "glow" of about 1/8".

    <blockquote>"Just be careful...they can rotate..."</blockquote>Good point...

    The sights that come attached to Browning factory barrels are very slightly different from the standard Comp sight. The ones Hi-Viz provides to Browning have a second little round lug on the underside of the base that fits into a small divot in the rib to keep the sight base from turning around the single screw.

    A very tiny dab (read "pin head") of "Shoe-Goo" or 5-minute epoxy on the breech end of the underside of the standard base will prevent turning but can be broken if the sight needs to be removed.
