Red Dot for Shotty?
 
Looking to pickup a red dot scope for my Mossberg 835 turkey gun.

Anyone have a suggestion? I want to keep the price low, if possible.

hey friend...
 
..take a tip from a old veteran turkey hunter,,go with a 1.5x 4.5
standard shot-gun scope,ive tried the red-dot but you wont regret
the bushnell banner, i so happen to have a good used one with weaver
base,for a 835 and i also have a Kicks Gobling thunder choke ported

Simon,
I have used a red dot on my 11-87 for a few years now, I love it. HAs never failed me and the "no magnification power, no parallex" has come in handy. The last bird I harvested was less than 15 yards, would have been tough with any magnification power on the scope. I'm not sure what brand it is, but I paid about 30 bucks for it from Cabelas. Highly recommend it (red dot) for a turkey gun.
Aw man, you just made me get a flood of anticipation for spring turkey season. :D

i agree that its a good addition to a turkey gun, got one on my mossberg 500

Lol.....
 
.P.S. Dont let your Light go out..LOL gobble gobble

even if the light goes out, the scope helps me to aim the gun, just center the target in the tube.
i was able to shoot 23 out of 25 hand thrown clays without the battery in the red dot

hill - Thanks... I'm going to check out Cabela's for a holosight for my AR15, so I'll see what they have for my 835 at the same time. :)

Grabbed a cheapy Pine Ridge scope today on my stop by Cabela's. I guess Pine Ridge is their brand. Ran me $70 and I had to pickup a Weaver rail for another $7. Mounted it tonight and it looks good! I'll have to see how it shoots on my next trip over to the cabin.

:)
