I know "you get what you pay for". Let's not debate that old saying... I plan to buy a nice eotech for several hundred dollars when i get a good rifle to put it on. However, my tactical shotgun doesn't need pinpoint aiming. This is what I'm about to ask about:

I bought this $20 red dot scope from SG and it aimed really well on the shotgun:

However, it only lasted me a month or two at most. Then it broke apart, as you'd expect something really cheap to do. So, I was thinking about getting a slightly better one that would at least hold up, but not be as bullet proof or as pricey as the eotech. Has anyone used this thing before?

I don't want to buy something that will last less than a year, but I don't want to blow a ton of $$$ on a shotgun sighting system when a shotgun doesn't need it. Thoughts?!?

Matt is right, the BSAs are "good" quality. I have had one for years on my turkey gun that has survived and remained accurate through the usual rigors of hunting the country and the monster recoil of 3 1/2" out of a x full choke. Rain, shock, fog, I have had zero problems out of it. And I paid $24 for it including the mounts. Not sure how they will act on a rifle but they are durable enough to meet your need.

regards

Thanks! And I'm not worried about using it on a rifle, I had it on my rem 1100 shotgun...

sounds like there is a loose connection in there, do you still have the original packaging and receipt? If so, I would take it back where you got it a get another one.
