Okay, hate to ask this and display ignorance, but here goes. I recently picked up an 870 pump. Now in the past all my shotguns had a bead and only a bead. This has a square pedestal upon which the ol'familar bead sits. So, when you aim do you see the pedestal or should you only see the bead?
On my regular shotguns, you saw the bead or bead + barrel which mean't you were likely shooting "over" your target.
I've only had this to the range once just to shoot a few rounds. I'm taking her out again Friday but was curious?
And while we're at it, has anyone tried the XS big dot that you simply bond over the OEM bead and pedestal? If so, how do you like it and what did you use to bond it?
