    Default Adding ghost ring sights to Mossberg 590 with marinekote finish

    I have a set of ghost ring sights I want to put on my Mossberg 590, which has the marine finish. No problem mounting the rear sight, but was looking for info on attaching the front ramp to this finish. Anybody have any experience with this using solder on this finish? I know a lot of people use JB Weld to attach, but I would like something a little more permanent, as this gun gets knocked around in the boat.

    I would use the bead hole for one screw and if room add one more.Some black loctite 480 I think for just that little extra.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    I agree with Will, mechanical attachment is always best if you can.

    I donít use it on guns, I donít shout cut gun repairs but donít underestimate the toughness of properly applied JB Weld! Itís stronger than aluminum, stick a couple hunks of 4041 together with it and pull on it in sheer. If it was well prepared for a proper bond the metal will fail not the JB Weld, amazing stuff.

    Couldn't find a gunsmith to install the front sight properly, and since the front ramp that came with the rings are not desiigned to screw on, I went with the JB Weld for now. Wouldn't bet the farm on life of the bond, but ran 10 rounds of slugs through it, and it held up ok.
