Red dot sight for shotgun


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a red dot sight for my 12ga semi-auto shotgun which has picatinny rail on the receiver. Hoping to have better scores on duck hunting in twilight at close and medium ranges.

I was looking for a couple of red dot sights on the internet and get confused:

One of them is this one: CVLIFE 1X22X33 Red Green Dot Gun Sight Scope Reflex Sight with 20mm Rail, only 19 dollars.

Second one is this: Ohuhu Red Green Dot Gun Sight Scope Reflex Sight with 4 Reticles. It has also charming price, only 19 dollars.

By the way, I'm from Turkey/Istanbul. Some of veteran hunters recommend Burris Fastfire series and Docter brand red dot sights for 12ga shotguns, around here.

Burris 300234 Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount 3 MOA Sight (Black). 195 dollars.

Burris 300236 Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount 8 MOA Sight (Black). 190 dollars.

Which one is proper for my desired purpose?
I need your valuable comments and recommendations.

Thanks in advance.

For a shotgun, I would stay away from budget dots or optics.

They probably can't handle the recoil.

I have a Fastfire on my AR, it's great.

Buddy has a FF3 on a heavy use pistol, after 3 years its still working, but needs replacing.

While I cannot endorse based on  personal choice, Holosun is putting out a very good product as well.

It appears they have reverse engineered the top rated dot manufacturers and able to produce at a lower price point.

What type of laws do you navigate for gun ownership in Turkey?

I'm running a Vortex Venom 6 moa dot on my Tavor TS12 shotgun.  I do not use the gun for hunting but that dot has worked well for CQB drills.

I'm thinking a moderator may want to move this thread to the Long Gun section or the Gear & Accessories section.

The Burris FF3 speed bead setup may be better idea for wing shooting. That or just practice shooting clays and work on fundamentals.

I put a pic rail and then a red dot on a Beretta. Ended up taking it off because it was too high to get my head down on the shotgun. Would of needed a tall cheek riser/comb, and then it would of been more like aiming with a rifle. Not sure how well that setup would really be for flying birds. Just my experience and opinion. GL
