Sight Mount for M1 Super90
« on: February 17, 2022, 04:24:35 PM »
I have acquired a Benelli M1 Super 90, Advantage Timber in 20 gauge and plan to put a Fastfire on it. Recommendations on a rib mount? Meadow Creek, Sumtoy, other? Thanks

I have the Aimtec saddle mount, works well just not with my Eotech 512. If you are interseted in it let me know. I would not drill and tap a M1 Super 90 the receiver is to thin.

Interesting comment; I wondered as it is a lightweight gun. But; (see above) Sumtoy recommended drill and tap? I am going to put a micrometer on it

If its one of the original stamped HK, do some internet searches, you will find a lot of information on it.

Not H&K stamped; "Benelli U.S.A Corp-Accokeek, MD Made in Italy" . it is a 20 gauge. I have an H&K Montefeltro, 12 gauge.

Saw you pose the same question over on 24hcf. If Sumtoy says to D&T that’s all I would need to hear. As I said in my response on 24hcf I’ve personally had 2 M2s D&T’d without issue. I’d be surprised if the M1 receiver was thinner than an M2

Don’t overthink this.

Get you a speed bead mount ... they work just fine, cheaper and you don't have to send your gun off ...

Meadow Creek will put it out on the rib where it needs to be and makes the most sense.  The field of view you get with a rib mounted optic is amazing, and you can hit the controls on the red dot without moving.
