Scope Mount for a supernova help.


Recommended Posts

How are you all? I'm new to this board.

 

Well I just picked up a new supernova and trying to get accessories for it. I was looking into the B-Mount but doesn't look like they make one for this model. I don't really want to tap the receiver and mount a base because I still want to use it to shoot small game bird/trap/skeet.

 

Does anyone know of a manufacture that makes a similar mount system as the B-Mount?

 

I went to Cabelas and they show one for the "Nova" but...the recievers look different.

 

Any help or alternative suggestions?

Welcome to the board and I hope that you've had a good Christmas/Holidays.

 

I am not aware of anything yet from B square specifically for the SN.

 

If you do not want to drill and tap the receiver of your SN, the only alternative that I can come up with is to obtain a Benelli barrel fitted with a cantilever mount, which extends back over the receiver. Any sighting system / scope that you then mount will stay attached on the cantiliver and not the receiver.

 

The down side is that you may find it very difficult to obtain a cantilever barrel either from Benelli or secondhand. Also, it is likely to be expensive.

 

Sorry that I cannot offer a cheaper solution!

I contacted the manufacturer of the B-Square and the technical department told me that the saddle mount for the Nova will work on my SuperNova. I ordered it and when I get it, I'll let you all know if it's any good. The only thing I am worried about is that the receiver on the Super is about an 1/8 in wider then the Nova.

 

If it doesn't fit, I guess I can just exchange it for the "rib mount".

a nova B-mount will do nicely... that is what i should have done..but instead i went and paid 35 bucks to get my gun drilled and tapped... then i spent 6 bucks on a 423m weaver mount.. and then went and bought a 190$ mueller scope... lots of money in a short amount of time..
