    I have this setup (promag safety with beat sight) on my 500 Mariner. No, the safety does not interfere with sight picture when looking directly down the barrel.

    Hi,
    I put the Brownell's or Pro Mag on my LH 590A1.
    There is no way for your thumb to "skid" off the top with it!

    Picked up a Triceratops Customs. Mainly because it included the screw and Allen wrench (though I have a complete set of them).[​IMG]

    Finally! A company that includes the new screw. Why can't they all do that?

    Several do or you can reuse the one way screw.

    Used the masking tape trick and forgot about the detention ball. Fortunately I was able to find it. I put the hump to the rear as I felt I could get a better grip on it to put the 500 into safe.

    I bought one of the NDZ safeties off eBay. it looks like the one in the top picture in the original post, except I bought it anodized in red so it can be seen at a distance, for when perhaps a cousin or Nephew might be holding that shotgun. I think I paid ~$9 shipped It came with an Allen head screw and the correct Allen Key for it

    I like that one too. Ordered a 'kit' for my Daughter's Mossy and the follower for mine...since I already had replaced the safety on it.

    Do the safeties come in grey?

    Willdog, welcome to Mossberg Owners.
    DarkPassenger308 hasn't posted here for a couple of years, but if he still has his email set to get notices maybe I can wake him up for you.

    Hey @DarkPassenger308 can you help @Willdog4 out with a 500 safety? Thanks. Scoop

    Thanks, Mark. This is what I was looking for, I just didn't know it!
    The paddle on the Brownells, NDZ etc. theoretically could catch on something so for me they are out. The VCS Big Speed Safety is a little taller than the stock safety.
    Like Goldilocks I think the Triceratops Custom is just right. The taller profile is ramped and less likely to snag. My order was just placed.

    I installed the Triceratops Customs safety, and am 100% happy! Took less than 5 minutes, fits perfectly, solid, and looks & feels great.

    Installed the Triceratops today. I took out the fitting it screws to inside of the receiver, dressed its edges and checked for burrs while I was at it.
    The stock anti-tamper screw came out without any drama.
    Much easier to manipulate than the stock button.
