I still have the bead as well. I'm not a huge fan of it, but I haven't gotten around to changing it yet. I'm probably going to replace it with a tritium big dot sight, and just mount a picantany rail on it and use that as a sighting system.

pretty green, but I like it. I don't think it needs to be said but green is the best color. I am going to paint my stock and forend green, when i get around to it.

Finding sights for a mossberg 500 can be kind of a bitch. I posted a thread about it already. Theres not as many options as a Remington 870.
I originally wanted a ghost ring sighting system, but the Mossberg Ghost ring set is $80. On top of that the front sight needs to be silver soldered onto the barrel. A gunsmith quoted me about $100-150 for that.

After a lot of searching and research, I've come to decide that a tritium front sight and a picantany rail will work just fine. Also i have the option to use a red dot/holographic.

agreed 100% with you there brother

i'm gonna throw a cheapie reflex sight up there, they have a tru glo at dicks for ~$40. that way if it breaks or i dont like it, i wont be out too much money.

i'm gonna order the tritium sight tomorrow at work, that way i can get paid to research who has the cheapest price shipped, lol. i'll post a link from the site i go with.

EDIT-green is my favorite color, so almost all of my guns have some sort of green on them. it's actually a little darker than the pic, the flash lit it up a bit

You should try that compstock by blackhawk. You can get a new one off Amazon.com for like 40-50 bucks. I think it's a nice option for someone who likes rifle stocks. It's a blackhawk product so its good quality, but its only 40 bucks so if you don't like it then no big loss. You will defiantly like it though.

If you use a Knoxx get the PowerPak so you get a good cheek weld while using an optic. Otherwise your cheek weld will be too low to line up properly. I am loving the combonation at close to 1000 rounds of 00 and slugs down range .

I am looking into getting the power pak. For a few reasons, one being for an optic. The second reason to avoid that cheek slap that happens every once in a while.
