bad luck on new gun

i have been having trouble with my maverick 88, but mossberg has been A+ on helping me fix it. so with their great service i decided to get another maverick 88 today so my wife and i could shoot together. i bought it at walmart still in box as i don't like getting display models, i checked it out on the working slide and everything was smooth, so i bought it. got it home and the front bead is broken off, i did not think to check the barrel as there isn't much to go wrong. i really hate calling mossberg again about this but they should have checked this. how do i get a new one back on?, i don't think i have a wrench that small, does anyone know the size? thanks

I've never taken one off, but aren't they threaded and screwed into a tapped hole in the barrel?

The barrel doesn't have a serial number on it...maybe the store would swap out barrels with another one in a box and send the one with the broken bead back to the distributor.
wal mart won't do anything, they said i should have checked it. problem is they won't let anyone touch a gun in box that doesn't have a trigger lock, so i couldn't check it. after telling the manager, she said rules, we have to go by rules. how good are these?, Dead Ringer Uni-Bead Fiber Optic Shotgun Sight DR4386. i have never put on a sight before on a shotgun and have never used these. gonna call mossberg tomorrow but with that little white bead able to come off, even if they send one i am gonna get something for backup. thanks
