Apply the ease, speed, and accuracy of a red dot sighting system to your favorite shotgun with this unique mounting system.

The SpeedBead mounts a FastFire™ optic between the stock and receiver of many popular shotguns.

Your line of sight will fall naturally just above the vented rib, allowing for accurate and instinctive aiming.

At 1x magnification, it’s designed for both-eyes-open shooting. That’s ideal for shooting clays and hunting waterfowl, upland birds, and turkeys.

SpeedBead™ Systems is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult Mounting I have tried a Speed Bead (Brother's shotgun) and thought it was great so I thought I would put one on my Benelli SBE II. It is extremely difficult to mount the Speed Bead on the stock. The pins on the mounting plate are so difficult to insert into the stock holes, the foam padding that is supposed to remain between the Speed Bead base and stock rips when trying to install as per the instructions (see photo). I guess that's why they provide two in the package. Second attempt (after destroying first foam padding on installation) would have the same results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benelli 20ga Super Sport Bought SpeedBead quite awhile ago and through sporting goods manager he sold me the #30041for a Benelli M2,etc.Remember there is no listing for my 20ga SuperSport so I gave it a try and worked like a charm.There is a little part of the mounting bracket that extends out from the stock and action.Its so little its not worth trimming or doing anything.Happy!I would recommend camphor the hole on the bracket so roll pin goes through and doesn't stick on assembly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service! I had a problem with my speedbead and they took care of it RIGHT NOW . . .WOW! The people at Burris are personable, helpful and take care of business. I'm impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent Sight I bought this for my SBE, it was easy to setup & I have used it on two duck hunts so far. It turned out to be more then I expected in that not only do it force me to keep my head down on the gun which was the original purpose but it's also so accurate that when we have decoying ducks or geese i'm now able to take head shots & not ruin the meat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Increase your hits! At 72 years old, my eyes are getting tired and I thought I'd never shot a shotgun again. After a friend showed me his SpeedBead sight, I knew it would help me but WOW, did it ever.When I draw up on a bird, I now know exactly where I am shooting because I can focus on the bird and see in my peripheral vision where the red dot is. It does not block out the bird, only show relationships. It really improves the sight picture in low light such as early in the morning or just before quitting time. It is also good for dark days as well. The mounting system is well designed and relatively easy to install.Sighting in is a simple alignment with the present front bead sight of your shotgun. It stays on target once sighted in. I have never been a good shot but after installing the SpeedBead my shooting improved . The last four days of goose season, I shot 12 times. I bagged 6 geese. That includes an opportunity where I & my partner pulled up on a dozen geese early in the morning and both emptied our guns without a single hit. The birds were legs down into the decoys at 30 yards. First flock of the day. Man were they lucky. Even with the Speed Bead, you can't flock shoot ! I even purchased a second mount to go onto another shotgun I use for ducks and pheasants. Obviously I recommend this sight. The next improvement would be for Burris to develop additional mounting systems for more manufacturers and for 20 ga shotguns. While its a big investment, it is well worth it your me to keep shooting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit a Remington 1100 20 ga. I had high hopes for this. Midway lists it as a 4 moa dot, it is an 8. The instructions said it fits a 1100, no gauge indicated. It did NOT fit my 1100 20 ga. and I gouged up my stock trying to make it work. The dot is fuzzy at any distance, but is good up close where it would be if the mount fit. The dot is too big to use on any of my other firearms. I damaged the mount, so I don't feel I can return it. If you buy it make REAL SURE it will fit your gun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from To fragile for heavy loads I purchase this Speed Bead for my Beretta Xtreama 3 1/2" for duck hunting. After mounting and and test firing to zero the sight malfunctioned after less than 1/2 a box of 3" mag shells. The vertical adjustment failed to function. The sight would most likely work well with light loads such as skeet and trap loads or dove loads but is to fragile for heavy duck loads.
