    i want to put iron sights on a shotgun. i have watched a video from midway usa where larry put sights on a rifle barrel. and i was wondering if this could be done to a HR TOPPER. model 158

    The shotgun barrels are too thin to drill and tap for a set of sights. You can silver solder them on, just make sure there is no plastic in the sight assembly.
