Hi guys,

I have a remington 870 tactical (ghost rings version)

http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/shotguns/model-870/model-870-express-tactical.aspx

My concern is with changing barrels. As you can see, the original barrel has the elevated front sight and works fine with the ghost rings. But if i change to a new barrel (typically bead, etc.), does this mean I'm screwed? Or do i have to remove the rear ghost ring sight every time i change to a new barrel?

Up here in Canada, we're allowed to carry very short barreled shotguns (< 18") out in the bush. So I was going to get a 12" barrel to install. I'm mostly concerned with the sights, etc.

thanks!

Have a smith put a front sight on your short barrel.

I have a 14" Mossberg 590A1 that has a ghost ring and a front sight.
