Burris Speed bead problem

Postby Freezer » Tue Apr 17, 2012 4:06 pm

I have a Beretta 390 that I got a great deal on a few years ago. I finially have it where I want it with a synthetis stock the drop and cast set right and Cammo dipped. I decided the finial touch would be a Burris Speed Bead. They make them for the 391 and Extreama but not the 309. They will sell the mount seperate for $79 I was thinking of taking the chancew and trying to modify it but I'd like an opinion beforew I try. Is there a big difference between the thre guns recievers and stock fit? Are they close enough that with a file and dremmal tool I could modify it?

I know how to fix it. Hold the gun by the barrel and kick that SOB off your gun. You don't need a sight/scope/bead for ducks.

I know that not all mounts will fit the guns they say they do. I recomend going to somewhere that has them and compare it to your stock / reciver.

I have a Beretta 390 and searched for what you are talking about. This is what I found and it appears that it replaces the 'shim', bolts right on.

I really don't think I'd use one though. It's kind of a gimmick imo.

Look fast before a site-donor deletes this because it's a Cabelas ad.

OK I found one! :grooving: This may help you Aunt Betty. After a few phone calls and a lot of web surfing I founfd the answer. The Burris speed bead is no longer made for the 390 and Cabelas hasn't sold one for a 390 since 2009. I contacted Beretta and they gave me the correct Burris Part number (300246). I then called Burris and they still have the mount in stock. Then another call to Cabelas and they're going to order one for me.

I want it for a couple reasons. First it will work as a turkey site. Second my left eye doesn't work correctly so I have to close it when shooting. Third stance and form are a lot easier to achieve on a range than a swamp. That's what the Speed Bead is saposed to aid in. I know it's a comercial but go to their web site and check it out. I may be paying for a gimic but you never know until you try. I've gotten a lot of smart remarks on the web about them but nobody that has tried one. :no: I met three hunters who have them and love then. I figured I'd get one with the change I've saved. I'll post the results when I get it. :wink:

My hunting partner liked his except for it fogging up in cold weather. Good luck with yours.
