Red dot sight mounting question

Post by drenalinld » March 11th, 2017, 12:56 pm

I am ready to put a sight on my M2 20. In order of most desired to least I am considering Trijicon RMR dual illumination, Leupold Delta Point, Vortex Venom tied with Burris FF3. Low mounting and weight of combo trumps all for me. Can the others be mounted like a FF3 on a 336 base?? This is lowest setup I've seen.

Burris 336 base. My buddy has 1 on his m2 and I'm sending a Franchi al48 28ga to sumtoy Monday to put his Burris style base on and I'm ordering a venom for it.

with sumtoy's base you have to put 336 or similar base on his plate then sight. So it is just a spacer block that fits certain contours better, correct? It will make Venom higher I believe.

I'm in the understanding its his version of the 336. Meaning sight mounts to it but I could be wrong. Don't quote me hopefully he may chime in here

But here is my best buds venom on his m2

And I could be wrong drenalin but the rmr should fit 336 too

I don't believe that's right but haven't seen one in person. If that is true why even use the sumtoy base to begin with? Even with very little contact on the m2 with the 336 base I've never had it shift. I would go with with vortex over the Burris just cause of the extra light intensities. Burris will still starburst in sunlight on the lowest setting whereas the extra light settings on the venom you can dial it down to where there's no starburst

You are correct. It looks thicker on the sides but that is just becaus it is radishes on bottom like a Remington receiver. Sight height should be real similar to Burris base for Marlin 336 part # 410333.

Yes, the Sumtoy version of the 336 base screws to the receiver and the sight screws directly to that. It is slightly higher than a 336 base, but I mean slightly...maybe 1/32. I just mounted one up the other day. If I were you, I would still drill the holes in the receiver 1/2" apart in case you ever wanted to use a 336 base because the 336 base is not slotted like the Sumtoy base.

Sumtoy posted one on an m2 in this thread. I'm going to get one on the way. I'd do the half inch spacing to like MKW stated just to have some kind of standard spacing. The Burris also uses 8-40 screws whereas I think sumtoy can do either but check. I'm having him send me 8-40 since mines already drilled for it.

It does not match radius so I don't get the appeal over a Burris base for Marlin 336. What am I missing? The part that appeals to me about Sumtoy mount is you can space holes more than 1/2" apart making it stronger. I might even put 3?in it if I use it. On rear and one each at front and rear of slot.

I'm sure you could get 3 screws in it, but I really can't see the point. How strong does it have to be?? I've had a FFII on a 336 base on my M1 since 2009 with no problems at all and I'm not gentle on my turkey guns.

You are probably right. I have just heard several horror stories. But with only a 336 base or Sumtoy's base and a light weight mini reflex sight it's overkill.

LOL...I'm glad you like it and are putting it to good use. I was out in the shop today looking at how much work I need to do to get back to the lathe.
