    Good morning

    I have a rifled barrel for my 870 with the standard Iron Sights, with these oldMan eyes; I have problems centering the white marked blade in the notch on the rear post.

    Any recommendations on replacement sights?

    Slap on a scope mount, and add a either a scope, or a red dot system.

    Receiver mounts for the 870 are plentiful my old eyes prefer a 4X scope

    Are you talking about the purchase of a cantilever barrel for the scope?

    If not, how does one "slap on a scope mount" to a 870 rifle barrel, without tapping the receiver?
