    Ghost ring for Mossberg 590SP

    Please provide me with any feedback, pro and con.

    Currently, my Moss has a simple (stock) bead sight on it which I am able to hit paper at 50 yds fairly consistenly with slugs. It's primarily my HD weapon of choice, but also fun to shoot at outdoor range.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Thanks gunsite. Can you please be a bit more specific about ease of target acquisition, "accuracy" with gr's, and anything else you can describe about why you "like" them.

    Are you thinking about doing an install, or buying on of the models with ghost rings already on there?

    Mossberg also has a few different variations of ghost rings sights on there shotguns now.

    I personally think the version that comes on the SPX models is the best one the offer, provided your front sight post is straight. They are stable, and easily adjustable. I believe you can now also find different inserts to put in the front sight.

    There is no question that they are better for slug work, and with just a little bit of practice, you can adapt to shooting through them for fun with clays.

    I'd like to do the install myself. I've only found one model that Moss sells. I have seen different types of front sights though.

    Smitty, I know that I can retrofit a red dot sight, but I wanted to research the GR sights as a first option. I may consider red dot if GR doesn't pan out.

    One year later, and yea!, I finally was able to pick up an OEM ghost ring sight. Now I gotta' find a LGS to install, especially the front sight.

    You will like the ghost ring sight. They are intuitive to use and very accurate.
