 I am considering putting a red dot sight on my Browning Gold 12 gauge semi-auto turkey shotgun. I have it narrowed down to the following three models:  Aimpoint 9000 SC Camo, Burris 135 Speed Dot Camo, or an Eotech 510. Can you guys tell me about these sights? Does anyone use the Burris and can you tell me if it is parallax free? Or if you move your head does the dot move around? How is the field of view on these sights? Price is not a real concern, however. I like to save money just like the next guy. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated. One more question, my shotgun is drilled and tapped for a scope but the Browning weaver type mount that Browning supplies for this shotgun only has two cross slots about 3 1/2 inches apart. Will the Eotech mount in just one cross slot? I have never seen one of these sights, but I hear nothing but good things about them.

When using holographic sights especially for the ranges you normally encounter turkey hunting, keep both eyes open. Now you see like normal but there is a red dot on the target. I have used Aimpoint M2 & ML2, and the EoTech. Both are great sights and will serve you well. I have abuse both kinds and had them on some rifles with descent recoil (Beowolf 50 & a FAL) they have always held their zero and I havent broke one.


Aimpoint M2 & ML2;s have flip open caps, knobs that adjust brightness, but require special batteries (most convienance store dont carry them). They do have outstanding battery life, (never had one go dead on me). The Aimpoint can also be mounted a little lower.


The EoTech had push button brightness adjustment, can be had in a AA battery flavor (which is nice for replacement bateries), sits a little higher on the stick but is still comfortable.


I'd recommend going into a shop or find someone close by that has one or both of them and looking them over, pick which ever one will be more comfortable for you to use then ordering it from SWFA.
