How to aim on a shotgun for still targets at 20 yard with shot 4 steel shot

What is the type of choke you are using? You want a FULL choke for the tightest pattern. Then you need to "pattern" your shotgun. Put a large piece of cardboard (4' x 4') on a range backstop at 20 yards and place a highly visible 3 inch orange dot or simply draw a 3 inch letter x in the middle of the cardboard. Take a string, 36 inches long and staple it to the center of the dot or X then tie a pencil on the other end. Stretch the string out and draw a perfect circle on the cardboard 36 inches from the center, then remove the string and pencil. From a shooting bench, use a shooting rest to steady your aim. Shoot at the center dot or X by pointing the shotguns bead sight directly at the dot or x
Look at the pattern of holes the shot pellets made. If they are mostly centered within the 36 inch circle, your hold would be right on the target. If they would, say, be up from center, the hold would be below the target. Up and to the right, the hold would be down and to the left, etc.
A gunsmith can correct this and make the gun shoot so that your hold would be on the target instead of trying to compensate for the barrel characteristics of your shotgun.

Do I need fully multi coated Spotting scope or Rifle scope?

Scopes with fully multi-coated internal glass-to-air surfaces (lenses) are recommended as they allow the highest level of light transmission through the binoculars (90 - 95% of the light that enters the binoculars will reach the eye) with limited internal light scattering and reflectivity. This results in fully multi-coated binoculars, spotting scopes and rifle scopes producing brighter, sharper and higher contrast images than coated or multi-coated binoculars. Unfortunately, fully multi-coated optics are more expensive to manufacture and are often only incorporated into higher-end binoculars, so your choice may depend on budget.

Where can I find base pads about 3/8" thick for a S&W model 41 magazine?

I was unable to locate a replacement base for the magazine, but used to when mag wells were added to 1911s, we would glue a piece of hard rubber or plastic to the base. You may have to shape it to match up. Easy fix if you have the materials.
