Continuing Marble Arms ® mission of "blending time tested tradition with modern technology" we are introducing a self illuminating shotgun bead. This sight is precision machined from solid steel to house the tritium capsule that illuminates your front sight in the dark. This, in combination with a ghost ring rear sight is the perfect combination for law enforcement shotguns and home defense weapons.
Mid-Rib Shotgun Beads are compatible with any of our traditional front shotgun beads including our "Expert" Shotgun Beads. Available in either stake-in Ivory tapered shank for press fit or brass threaded style. Place the mid-rib beads at the center of the barrel or 12" to 16" from the muzzle sight to insure perfect alignment with your front sight.
Marble Arms® "Expert" shotgun beads are used exclusively by a number of major shotgun manufacturers. This style of bead can be rib mounted or directly mounted on plain barrel shotguns. Our ivory and gold beads will appeal to most traditionalists. The Marble Arms ® "Expert" bead body is precision machined from solid steel on our 5-1/2 axis CNC turning centers.

To align the sight to the barrel you may have to slightly chamfer the hole in the barrel or rib. This is done with a larger drill bit. (Using only your fingers to spin the drill to remove a little metal from around the tapped hole.) You want the sight to be finger tight with about an 1/8 of a turn left before it is aligned. Remove the sight and use a drop of Locktite and install the sight. You can use a small wrench to adjust the sight to align with the barrel. If the shank is showing in the bore of the barrel you will have to shorten the shank.
