But if you want a sight; by all means, get what you think will be easier for you.
amen if your shooting close as in a hd situation you might want sights but clays or birds look at the beads the gun stops you miss its like hitting a baseball are your eyes on the ball or the bat?

I was thinking a bayonet to! But mostly for looks. I like your 500 sharp looking gun.

"Bayonet." On a 590 A1. Because a) I can b) people are more subconsciously afraid of sharp pointy things than gun barrels, and c) bayonets never run out of ammo just as "C" class ATA sophmores never run out of wiseacre comments.

I have been looking and looking for a 20inch bead sight barrel for my mossber590a1. I have the ghost ring sights on the barrel and would either trade or buy your barrel from you if you are interested in the sights still. I am having extreme difficulty finding that barrel for some reason so it would be much appreciated if you were interested in me taking that off your hands.

A shotgun "bead" front sight is a hold over from the old days. The front sight on a shotgun is not even needed at all. It is there strictly for looks. In all of my years of shooting registered skeet, I have known a few fellows whose front beads had fallen off. When I pointed it out to them, they all replied that they had not even noticed. That's how important the front bead sight is (or isn't).

First thing I did after shooting my new 590 A1 with cool-looking GRS' on a Sunday was to order a bead front sight barrel on Monday. Second thing was to get a three-dot sight barrel for poops and grins. The bead, useful of course, is the way to go.

I have an H&R Pardner 12 gauge that I keep around for home defense. The shotgun came with a bead sight, which was fine, but I simply wanted a bit more. I ordered a Hi-Viz fiber optic sight which really helped. I have it set as the green tube, and it simply picks up ambient light and just looks like its glowing and makes it easy to aim. It's a very cheap (less than $20) option.
