Thanks Turkinator, had a buddy that wanted to mount a 1” scope on his 20 ga. I figured out which Weaver base it took, I tried to talk him into a Sumtoy base and a FF III but he’s too tight for that. :lol:

I think that it takes the same base as a Remington 742 if my memory is correct.

This is what I used. Had two holes drilled and tapped in receiver. The base is only slightly longer than a red dot like the Fastfire or Viper….

I have a one piece Weaver on my 870 20 gauge, but I couldn't see the model #. I looked all over, but with it being mounted on my gun with my scope I couldn't locate it....sorry.

Thanks CamoMan, it ended up being a Weaver #438.

EGW has them, on the 870 the radius between the 20 and 12ga are the same.

In another thread they also list the mounts from EGW for FF3 that IMO a better option for red dots to get closer to the barrel.
