Burris SpeedBead Vent Rib Mount for RDS

Hunters, and everyday shooters alike, understand the need for precision aiming when shooting shotguns, especially with the tighter patterns and longer distances with current loads. Given the increased popularity of tungsten shot, when a tighter aim is required, many shooters get that with a red dot. But not all shotguns have the ability to mount a red dot. Enter the Burris SpeedBead Vent Rib mount for red dots.

According to Burris, the Vent Rib Mount allows the shooter to transform the shotgun into a dynamic hunting-ready weapon that allows the shooter to get on target for clays, waterfowl, upland, and turkey targets. The easy-to-install SpeedBead Vent Rib mount goes on lightning-fast without the need for drilling or tapping any holes.

The mount, specifically designed for use with the Burris FastFire series of red dot optics, or any red dot that uses a Docter mounting pattern, has an easy DIY installation. The unique design of the Vent Rib mount makes it self-centering with no play to the sides and comes with assorted rib adapters that allow the mount to be compatible with multiple rib widths.

The SpeedBead Vent Rib mount is constructed from aluminum with a black anodized finish that won’t damage the finish on the shotgun and provides a seamless look. Additionally, according to Burris, the SpeedBead Vent Rib Mount completely captures the vent rib on both sides for maximum clamping power along the full length of the mount. Since the mount can attach anywhere along the vent rib, it can be adjusted forward or rearward to match the perfect location for the shooter’s sightline.

The red dot optic of choice attaches to the Vent Rib mount and then attaches to the shotgun vent rib. It is the perfect addition to any shotgun that did not come from the factory with an optic-compatible receiver and comes with Burris’ unconditional Burris Forever Warranty. The SpeedBead Vent Rib mount is a great solution for shotguns using high-density ammunition as well as shotguns with tight chokes or for hunting turkeys at close range.

The Burris SpeedBead Vent Rib mount is available currently and has an MSRP of $60.
