Ideas on changing barrels with rear ghost ring sight

Hi guys,

I have a remington 870 tactical (ghost rings version)

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.

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.
