Shotgunsight rail moving?

I have a Mossberg 500 that I bought used, so unsure of the age, but I have had it for a few years and shot it once and awhile. Yesterday I was shooting some clay targets and after about 15 shots I noticed the rail with the bead sights had moved. It was "sliding" of the end of the barrel. I pushed it back into its correct location and shot again and the recoil of the shot made the rail move again. Is there a normal problem? Can it be fixed? If so how?

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin

I would try a blue Loctite first so you can move it if it's not shooting straight, make sure you wipe the excess off before it dries. If that keeps it there, I'd leave it, if not maybe a good epoxy but make sure it's where you want it before it dries.
