    mossberg 500 ghost ring question

    will the ghost ring rear sights that are for the mossy 500 fit into the factory rear holes? or is there some gunsmithing required? not sure how the rear sights are mounted. what do you have on your gun? i know the front sight is going to require gunsmithing but not sure about the rear.

    my mossy in factory drilled and tapped.
    thanks
    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    There is no gun smithing for the rear sight if your receiver is drilled and tapped. It screws in with just two screws.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    The 930 SPX comes with LPA ghost rings, I really like the sight set up. The rear is on a section of Picatinny rail. And the front is substantial. Adjustments are very easy with the rear.

    I have shot an 870 with their standard ghost ring from the factory, the LPA set is much better.

    I agree. I have the old style ghost rings on my 500 and the newer LPA type sights are superior. I'd guess that they are also more expensive.
