Reptilia Beretta 1301/A300 Saddle Mount

Built around the use of two specific enclosed-emitter micro red-dots (the Aimpoint ACRO and the Steiner MPS) with two specific Beretta shotgun models (the 1301 Tactical and the A300 Ultima Patrol), Reptilia’s shotgun Saddle mount bolts directly atop the receiver to provide a much-lower-profile sighting solution than is possible with a Picatinny rail.

Machined from a billet of 7075-T6 aluminum and then hardcoat anodized, the incredibly durable mount is made in America and weighs just 0.8 oz.

MSRP is $120. For more information, visit
