Drv,...you can go either way. I yanked my rear sight off, and put the FF2 right there. I put the FF3 on my wife's Browning,..(she did not like the Branded Browning sight, which was all of 48 bucks) so we just put it back in the box... I had wanted the 3 for one of my Centerfires,...so be it.
The other thing I did, was change the front sight to a Tritium Blade front,..it shows up much better in the sight picture IMO, esp with "53" year old eyes. On my wife's Browning we painted her front sight with Green Neon nail polish, that way if she gets bored with the color, we can "remove" it, and change it to Bright Red or Orange. A word of warning on that,..if you go the "cheap" route and use the wife's nail polish for the front sight, DO NOT use the Clear overcoat the ladies use to "seal" the polish on their toes....It won't come off!!!
