Illuminated shotgun set ups? Suggestions please!
« on: July 17, 2012, 06:06:53 PM »
What's a good illuminated shotgun scope/holographic site (affordable and shock proof). I want to add some confidence when I get animals to come in at night.

I'm anxious to see some input here. I am also looking for a scope for my shotty. I'm looking at the red/green dots but not sure of which I want.

Thanks guys. I'm leaning more towards this set up. Keep them coming until I decide.

That is the one i would pick if i were going to use one.  that being said, at night less is better, i have a coyote light and when adjusted correctly you can see animal and the front bead of the shotgun no problem.   get a hard charging grey or sometimes even a red and i think the scope will cause more problems than it is worth.

I wasn't sure about using a RedDot with a red Kill Light but, I love it.

I've been using a Pro Point Plus on my 835 Ultramag for the last year. I thought I'd broken it a few weeks ago from recoil (knocked the front lens loose) but, I guess not, it seems to work fine still.

I bought a Fastfire II to replace it but, so long as it's still working, I'm going to keep it on there.

This is officially my set up. After thinking long and hard about it. I invested the money into this "used" EOHTECH. I couldn't find or understand what was enough of a shockproof rating for a 12ga 3" mag. I figured if it's good enough for the military, it would work for me.
