I have one on my Model 1100 Magnum. I have shot some clays and waterfowl with it. It works as advertised, and mounts painlessly. Well made.
Years ago I had (still have it) a Weaver Qwik-Point. I had endless mount issues, it was naturally lit, it fogged up at the drop of a hat, it was big bulky and heavy. But when things were right it was the greatest aid to long range wingshooting ever. Of course shooting at stationary targets is a snap too. The red dot is out there in the same focal plane as the target, so your eye can easily see both without taking your eye off the target. I do wish the bead was a little bigger and brighter for wingshooting, but it still works.

Well thank you that sounds like a positive review. Mine will be more for target and HD then anything.

Also, as far as I know it is the only red dot sight that will mount without buggering up the receiver, either intentionally or unintentionally.

Very good to know! But for the record, by buggering up you mean?
