Mossberg 500 owners, like other gun owners, love to expand the capabilities of their weapon by adding Mossberg 500 accessories to it. One of the most common ways to get the ball rolling with accessories is with the addition of a sight. There are many great benefits to owning a Mossberg 500, but it is the availability of sights and other accessories for the weapon that make it so popular. It also helps that upgrading to a great sight that also adds a layer of aesthetic appeal to the weapon is relatively inexpensive.
Upgrading to a fiber optic sight or ghost ring has benefits that go well beyond making the Mossberg 500 look even cooler. There can be no denying that a great Mossberg 500 sight can add a level of performance and accuracy to the weapon that simply wasn’t there before. These are things that even the casual, weekend shooter can benefit from. Alright, so now that we know just how big a difference a good sight can make to the Mossberg 500, the next question you all have will likely have to do with how much it will set you back to add the sight.
As we already mentioned, there are a ton of sights available for the Mossberg 500, with price points to suit just about any budget. If you are okay with a fiber optic front sight, you can expect to pay around $18 for a lower end sight, which will still get the job done quite nicely. A front and back set is more likely to come in at around $35, but shopping around might just land you a nice little bargain. Red dot sights and reflex sights come in at around the same range, while the ghost ring sights start at around $70.
As you can see, there are plenty of options available, making it easy to find the type of sight that you want, and all at a price that won’t break the bank. Installation is easy, and you can greatly improve the performance of your Mossberg 500 without a huge financial or time investment.
