Default rear sight for a shotgun bead

hey all, I'm trying to gauge (pun intended) interest on an item I've developed. It a rear ghost ring sight that works with a standard front shotgun bead (not a rib) It's a fixed sight designed spacificly for fast target acquire. Before anyone says " the bead is too low on the bore to work w a rear sight", just know that I've solved this issue. The design works.
would anyone out there have an interest in something like this?

Not in the least bit. Useless.

I'm curious to see what would compensate for the bead being positioned so low.

At shotgun ranges a bead is fast and accurate enough. Lining up two sights takes longer. (Maybe not much longer, but still longer).

with a shotgun your eyes should be on the target!if the gun fits you wont even notice the bead or barrel.

this would work for more stationary targets like turkey or deer if your using a slug deer hunting but for fast moving targets like quail,pheasant and dove i think it would add unnecessary time aligning the sights.only my opinion.

This is why it is useless. Just my opinion, of course. YMMV.
