Jerry Miculek's 930 red dot mount

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

As the title would suggest, I'm looking for the vortex mount that Jerry seems to use on his open 930. I see the Or3gun makes one, but damn, that thing is like 1/2" above the receiver. Jerry's sits really low.

 

In his older videos, you can see the (trijicon) dot sits up on the barrel (Watch the "quick shotgun reloading" video). In the newer videos, the Vortex sits up on the receiver, it appears to screw to the mounting holes already on the 930.

 

I'd settle for either one...I'm just trying to set the dot as low as possible!!

 

Thank you!

Good chance Jerry may have made it. He is a pretty good machinist/gunsmith in his own right and has a nice shop at home.

Thank you for the reply The Donald... I know Jerry was a machinist before he got to be famous. He used to do all of his own porting (Before the magnaport sponsor lol).

 

Anyway...

 

Actually, I think I found one that might work!! Found the EGW site link in another thread

I had a friend mill down the pic mount that came with the DPNP and mounted it with 8-40 screws into the rear pair of rail mount holes. I probably could of went thinner with the mount...

I was trying to not get a machine shop involved. That turns a ~$50 mount into $150 real fast! (I wish I knew a machinist!)

 

Any problems with keeping a cheek weld with the height of the dot? Probably have to get something to raise the comb up a bit to make it comfortable, huh?

This cost me a 6-pack of better than PBR. Not bad. This was just a stopgap until I figured out what I really wanted to do. That turned out to be not 3 Gun and I sold the shotgun a few years back. The dot height was OK and not all that different than the 510C on my PCC. I am not a real small person though...

Better than PBR? That's a large selection! 😆

 

So....this is what I went with. It looks like it sits lower than the egw mount, and well... Arrendondo had their mount in stock!

 

It right pisses me off that I have spent literally months looking for a mount that I didn't have to have custom made, and I found 2 within hours of posting on here, looking for help.

 

Oh well. If anyone is interested, I'll post how the Arrendondo mount works out when I get it.

 

Thank you for the replies!

That's great you found that. Back when I was doing this, nothing was out yet. In fact, the chute was a Benelli that I had to drill and tap mounting holes since it didn't line up with the pins. Now Ralph has everything I needed...

Primary Machine was able to mill the receiver on this Benelli.  Perhaps that’s an option.
