Mid Bead Question


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a benelli m2 field as my do it all shotgun ,and love it. My question is why did benelli decide not to put a mid bead on the m2 like they did with the sbe2? Also what exactly is the mid bead designed for, and should i consider putting one on my m2 as it is my do it all shotgun.

I was always told that the mid bead is for checking to see if you have your cheek in the right spot on the stock. If you are lined up correctly you should see a figure 8. The front bead sits on top of the mid bead making a figure 8. I shoot alot of skeet, so you have time to do this.But when I hunt you don't have time to do this(most of the Time).

With a shotgun, your eye is the rear sight.

The mid bead does indeed assist with proper cheek weld and helps prevent canting.

I've found that the less I look at the bead the better.

 

Shoot instinctively, focusing on the target, not the sights.
