remove the old front sight, see what's there...may be a D/T hole, might just be a divot, ya never know
Get a Gunsmith to D/T for a Techsight if you don't have the tools/know-how...
and do NOT use a Hand-Held Drill or Dremel...EVER
Now, as far as the DIP T/G-Combo...great buy!!
However, make sure you've got a Square-backed T/G in there already, OR you'll have to do a little careful carving to make it fit.
Again, it is easy if you have the tools/know-how, but if you don't, seek a qualified gunsmith
It's not about the difficulty of the task - I've changed out, modified and retro-fit more than a handful of front sights on various guns. My issue is that I'd rather avoid making permanent modifications to the gun - I have the original stock in the closet untouched, and got an extra one to refinish - I've also got a spare trigger guard waiting for the DIP trigger (not replacing the whole trigger guard).
I'm aware it's a "cheap" gun (I paid $50 for the one in the picture) but it is what it is. The way things stand right now, the only shooting I've been able to engage in lately is plinking in my garage with CCI Quiet 22 ammo. Don't need the tech sights (or other aperture sights) for 50ft targets.
Edit to add: I didn't intend to come off "snarky" or anything and I appreciate the tips by the way.
