This fiber optic front sight lines up seamlessly with the EX Tactical Rear Sight. Steel side guards withstand serious punishment.
I have a ribbed barrel. Does the system work with that?
Yes! But order the EX Tactical Front Sight - RB version for ribbed barrels, not this ST version for plain barrels.
I have an after-market magazine tube extension. Will the system work with that?
It depends. If there is a bracket on the front, close to the end of the barrel, there may not be enough clearance to mount a sight. If you don’t have a bracket, select the EX Front Sight-ME version of the front sight for the magazine extension. It is designed to fit securely with the extension tube.
If you are in the market for a mag extension and have an 18″ or 20″ barrel, we recommend the TacStar Magazine Extension for 12 gauge shotguns (select the Remington 870 8-shot size from the TacStar website to view details). Gander Mountain and other stores carry this brand.
My magazine tube is big – over 1” in diameter. Can I still use the system?
Yes! Select EX Front Sight - ST (for plain barrel) or EX Front Sight - RB version (depending on your barrel) to accommodate the larger diameter.
I have a Mossberg. Can I use this site on it?
No, if you have an extended magazine tube or a ribbed barrel. There is a barrel lug brazed on the front of Mossberg barrels that will prevent this sight from sliding on if the magazine tube is extended. Take a look at the options we have for Mossberg front sights. If you have a standard magazine tube this sight could work with the included shim on a plain Mossberg barrel.
