Just bought a used 870 wingmaster with no bead on barrel and tapped holes for a rail. Its going to be used as home defense gun and brought to range. Any thoughts on a set up or should I bring it to a smith to get a bead put on?

If it's tapped for a rail, you might a well set cash aside and grab a suitable red dot.

XS makes a Big Dot you can epoxy on, just get a cheap brass bead, screw it in with some red loctite and epoxy on the big dot with some JB weld.
