My 25" 410's are 12 1/2 inches...so right in the middle. Both my 28" 12's are at 13 from the front bead. 26" 12 gauge is 13". All pretty much in the middle. 28 gauges are buried in the back of the safe and didn't feel like digging them out.I am thinking of purchasing a stevens 555E in 12 gauge with a 28 inch barrel. I had looked a sporting guns and like the mid point bead on the ventilated rib. I talked with a gun smith who told me he could install a mid point bead on the rib for $30 but needed to know the distance from the front site ( end of barrel ). The main reason for the purchase is the price as well as I am a left handed shooter living a right handed gun world. The gun felt good to me.
I have researched this and have come up empty. Anybody have any idea on the distance ? thanks
