Kjell asked 1 year ago
I have an Sauer 404 XT Syncro and an Beretta 686 shotgun. I look for a red dot optic from aimpoint or Leica Tempus

I have hunted goouse and big bird for 40 years, and wildbore, moose and deer the last 15 years and want a small red dot for both weapons. Is it realistic?

Witch mounts would you reccomend?

For the Sauer 404: The one from hennerberge, Innomount or the original from Sauer?

I see you have a spesial offer aimpoint H-2 with sauer 404 mount. What can you offer with a Leica Tempus 3,5 MOA

For the Beretta686?

Dear Kjell,

thank you for contacting us.

In order to use a single red dot sight on both rifles you would require a detachable and 100% repeatable mount. Additionally, you would need to have Picatinny rails on both of your rifles.

For a Sauer 404 rifle, we would recommend a Picatinny rail shown below.

For a Beretta 686, it will be quite more complicated to find a suitable mount as this rifle actually doesn’t have a pre-prepared mounting surface. In this case, we would require the exact image of your rifle’s mounting surface.

In order to use an Aimpoint H-2 on a Sauer 404, we would recommend using it with the Aimpoint mount that you’ve specified. You would however need to install a Picatinny rail on the Beretta 686 rifle in order to attach the Tempus on its mounting surface.

Thank you for your understanding.
