    All the trap I own have a white plastic mid bead. I now have two guns that have managed to shear off the mid bead on gun racks. By looking at them, they also all look to be the same for Browning, Remington & Winchester.

    Since the front bead on most of them is a Bradley, I have assumed that Bradley was also the maker of the mid bead. As I search on Bradley beads on the Brownell site, I don't see where they make a mid bead. Does Bradley have their own Web site that I can't find?

    Can anyone tell me who makes this most popular mid bead? Is it possible that they are all the press fit Marbles?

    Thanks.

    PS I know many of you will tell me I don't need a mid bead. I will probably agree, but I do like the look of functional one, as opposed to a broken off one.

    Go to Brownells website. Look up the parts schematic for a Browning BT-99. There you will find the white plastic center bead and it comes with the tapered bushing that holds it in place.

    Tip on installation: Use a piece of fairly thick (1/4" or more) hard rubber. Place the new bead in the bushing and set it in the hole in the rib. Lay the piece of rubber on top of the bead and smack it with a hammer. A few whacks and the bead will be seated with no damage to the bead.
