Yep, most tritium sights for shotguns are just the front sight that replaces the original bead. Unless you're shooting slugs, rifle type sights really aren't needed for for shooting shot. Especially if you are using the shotgun for HD for instance where the distance to the target is short. There are smoothbore replacement barrels for Mossberg 500's that come fitted with front & rear rifle sights already mounted. It's an easy 5-minute job to replace the barrel.

Here's a good example of the barrel I am talking about:

i used this barrel setup on my mossberg 500 it works great, the sights are williams and I went to their site and replaced the sights with fiber optic ones. for an additional $30 or you could send your barrel to williams and they will install the fiber optic ones on it for about $75 i think, I like the 7+1 capacity on mine

good luck

the 18" barrel suits me best though. I don't know, I will figure something out here eventually. Thanks though.

my idea for another type of sight is something that would be more visible in low light or darkness. that tiny gold bead on the front is hard for me to see in daylight much less in the dark! i have thought about the ghost ring type sights, any input on them?

I like the ghost ring system, but I have found out getting a set for my mossberg is kind of pricey. I don't know what kind of shotgun you have but I can get a set from Mossberg for around $80. then I would have to go to the gun smith and have him silver solder the front one onto the barrel, which I got a $100 estimate. So that's a $180 sighting system. Seems a bit pricey, I should have bought a 590a1.
