Hopefully, any gunsmith. Cost depends on the cost of parts, whether the receiver has already been drilled/tapped or not, and if the front sight is drilled/tapped, soldered, or epoxied on.

Check brownells for parts pricing and go from there.

I'd charge you $50 extra if you use the word "shotty".:D

So would I.

I did ghost rings on my 870 7 or 8 years ago.
They came out great.
Front is soldered on.
Rear gets drilled and tapped into the receiver.
870's won't come pre-drilled as there is no standard for where the holes go.
Each rear sight is different.

I have Wilson Combat ghost ring sights on my 870. I like them. They definetly make it easier (for me) to group slugs on paper. Like Randall stated, 870's don't come pre-drilled and the rear sight needs to be drilled and tapped into the receiver. I didn't feel comfortable doing myself, so I took it to a gunsmith.
