Default Saddle scope mount for S&W Model 3000

Is there a saddle type scope mount made specifically for the model 3000 shotgun? Or will the one for the Rem Model 870 fit the Model 3000?

B-Square, Millet and Aimtech make saddle mounts for shotguns. They do not list the M3000 as one they make. Looking at pictures, the contours and pin spacing between the 3000 and the 870 sure look pretty similar. The trigger housing pins on the 870 are 2" center to center. From the front pin to the top of the receiver is 1.8". Whether or not an 870 mount will fit a 3000, I do not know.

Perhaps a call to any of the makers listed above can shed some light on the subject. Good luck.

Aimtech got back to me. They dont make one for the M3000. I'll call around tomorrow. Does anyone have the phone# for S&W?
Thanks for your help.

KSCHARLIE, the measurements I got from the Model 3000 were 2in from pinhole to pinhole and 1.7 in from front pin hole to top of receiver. If all else fails, I may buy an 870 saddle mount and try it.

If there's a local gun shop or police supply that may stock the receiver mounted side saddle ammo carriers, you could measure one of those to get the pin spacing for an 870/1100/11-87. Depending upon pin hole location you could always drill your own holes on the scope mounts.
