ghost ring sights
 
does the front bead unscrew so you can put in a different front sight on a mossberg 500 barrel?

yes it does

Don't take me wrong, I want you to be happy with your 500. Most 500's have 2 beads on the vent rib. If you put any effort into using both beads you will see they shoot a slug accurately enough to defend your home. I can't recommend smoothbores for hunting deer. A rifled barrel is very accurate and most newer 500's are already drilled and tapped for a scope.

Another problem you run into with ghost rings on a shotgun is your eye naturally goes to the center of the ring, which will result in shooting over your target.

its the persauder, it only has one bead at the end and its drilled and tapped on the reciever. i dont like trying to find a bead if its low light its my hd/shtf gun. my 870 is my deer gun with rifled barrel. arnt the ghost sights adjustable?

I have a rifle front sight and a ghost ring rear on my Nova. It works just fine. It is sighted in for slugs at 50 yards. You do need a front sight of the proper height for the ghost ring. You could go to a scope or red dot since your receiver is drilled and tapped but the ghost ring works very well at shotgun ranges.

Find a different screw-in big bead if you need. Eschew GRS' -- they are terrible for shooting a shotgun as a shotgun.

Could you explain how this works? It seems to me that having your eye go to the center of the ring is the whole idea.
