For those who want a sleeker design for short barrel law enforcement guns or who want to tromp through the woods, this fiber optic front sight lines up seamlessly with the MX Tactical Rear Sight. Steel side guards protect the sight and withstand serious punishment.
NOTE: If you have a Mossberg Shockwave 590, order the Heavy Barrel version of the MX Front Sight
I have a heavy barrel on my shotgun. Will this work with it?
Unfortunately, no. You will need the MX Tactical Snub Front Sight - HB, which is not yet released. Sign up to be notified when it is available.
I have a ribbed barrel. Does the system work with that?
No. Sorry, at this time, none of the Mossberg-related front sights work with ribbed barrels.
I have an after-market magazine tube extension. Will the system work with that?
Yes! The band clamp was specifically designed to fit between he barrel and the magazine tube extension.
My magazine tube is big – over 1” in diameter. Can I still use the system?
Yes! The band clamp is thin enough to fit between the barrel and the magazine tube extension.
Do I have to remove my factory bead sight?
No. A slot has been machined into the bottom of the sight that will clear most factory beads. Some sight beads are larger in diameter or have a hex nut base and may need to be removed.
How do I use the included shims?
For smaller diameter barrels, the included shims can be placed inside the band clamp to adjust for a tight fit.
