                Got out with it this morning. Started raining on my way to the range, but I said SCREW IT and just got wet. Put 100 rounds of the Centurion slugs down-range and was blown away by the Ghost Ring sights. This gun is amazing!


                Here's one of my targets from 50yds...




                Not bad for a 20" smooth bore!

                    Thanks Pondy!


                    The gun did all the work, I just pulled the trigger. I plan on tightening up my 50yd groups a lot more on my next trip and then pushing it out to 100yds. Should be fun...

                      You are making me want to put ghost rings on my 870 Lazy!

                      I seldom shoot my shottie ..... it just sits in the closet waiting for the zombies to attack. I really need to take it out to the range again soon but I have too many other guns to shoot and practice with. Too many priorities, not enough time. Sigh.

                        I hear ya Pondy.

                        The Ghost Rings make all the difference for range shooting with slugs. My other scatter gun just has a front bead and sits waiting in the safe for the next opportunity to splatter melons at my buddy's farm...

                          Hey LES! I have a 500 Cruiser 8 shot w/pistol grip. I'm kinda like Pondy, waiting for zombies.. But I bought a factory shoulder stock for it, so they interchange. Do they make those ghost rings for the 500? I also like that forend! Where can I find them for the 500?

                            Hello Ransom,

                            Parts for the 590 and 500 will be interchangeable. They could be called 500 series parts and upgrades. The only exception is that most 500/590 heat shields won't fit the 590a1 due to its thicker walled barrel.

                            I picked up both my forends from m1surplus.com. Great customer service and fast shipping. Here's a link...

                            http://www.m1surplus.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=129

                            As for ghost rings, it's the same story. They will fit both 500 and 590 (and a1 models), however the front sight base will have to be silver soldered to the barrel so gunsmith installation will be required.
