Just bought a new 2000 synthetic 12 ga. Can the front sight be removed? The manual says nothing about it. Do not want to go twisting until I know for sure. Want to replace the white with red or orange.

It is threaded and I replaced mine with a Tru Go fluourescent green sight.

Replaced the front sight with a flouro red and it works much better than the white. Interesting thing is that I left the same question at the Stoeger web site and they said I should take it to a gunsmith for replacement. How odd.

yea .. they dont want to be responsible for misleading you.. covers their butt if it might have been re-taped and treaded in reverse or if you damage or break it off.

glad it turned out ok .. no pun intended ;)

What screws out, the white peice of plastic. Does it screw out from the front of the barrel or back towards the receiver?
