Speedbead on m3020?

Post by bowhunter2k9 » January 20th, 2018, 4:04 pm

Anyone tried to fit an m2 speedbead on a stoeger m3020? I’ve discussed getting sumtoy a mount drill and tapped but was just curious if anyone had tried a speedbead.

I have one on my daughters Affinity compact 20 ga. I had a guy modify a Speed Bead mount for a M2 Benelli to fit it and it looks great on the gun, there was a issue with the FF III not sitting exactly level (lower in front) and he tapered the 1/8" spacer and leveled it out(the Speed Bead comes with a 1/8" and 1/4" spacer). I have since modified a Speed Bead for my TriStar Viper G2 28 ga. and it only took about a 2 hours to do it and I ran into the same issue with it not sitting level and I tapered the 1/8" spacer by rubbing it on a piece of sandpaper, it took longer to taper the spacer than to modify the mount but it looked good when I was done.

I have a speedbead mounted on my Beretta Xtrema2 and it makes hitting very easy assuming the other fundamentals are there. Highly recommend a red dot on a shotgun like this.

In your case, getting the little mount ring that holds the base that the SpeedBead sits on may be the challenge. I am guessing that the since the Stoeger M3020 is a Benelli design made in Turkey (the exterior design looks very very close to my Benelli M4) that the SpeedBead Benelli mount option may work well, and if not, I bet you could hillbilly gunsmith it as needed to get it to fit. Good luck!
