      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

870 Express sight bead ?

Recommended Posts

BobT

I have a Remington 870 Express 12ga. and my daughters bought me a fiber-optic sight to replace the front bead. I have not been able to remove the original bead. Is the front bead on the express pressed in? I can turn it all day but it doesn’t back out.

If it’s pressed in, would I be better off trading the threaded sight for a magnetic one or is it possible to get the old one out somehow and tap threads into the rib?

Thanks,

Bob

On mine I filed the old bead off and drilled a new hole.

I tried to get the bead off on my 870 and I twisted it right off. I got a snap on fiber optic and put it on in place Works great! I wouldn't have it any other way. The one I have is about 2 inches long and really lights up in low light. Good Luck Kidwalleye

I won a Franchi shotgun at a DU banquet that was missing its front bead. The size of the threaded hole was a non-standard size. I "settled" for a magnetic site. The site lasted about an hour. I am not sure if it came of when I was uncasing the gun or if I lost it when I was hunting. Needless to say I ended up ordering a threaded site that fit the gun. I wouldn't recommend the magnetic site to anybody.

The one I got isn't a magnetic sight. It was a bugger to put on though. It's made out of steel and is a friction fit. Matter of fact it would be pretty hard to take off. Good Luck Kidwalleye
