over kill? maybe

the ironic part is the last time i took a shot with a red-dot reflex sight at a turkey i missed. the last time i took a shot at a turkey with iron sights it hit the ground like a ton of bricks. i found with the red dot sight i was able to have the turkey sighted in ready for an accurate shot in half the time with iron sights, with the added benefit of not blocking the rest of the turkey's body with my barrel (iron sights problem i have). now i just gotta work on not getting so damn excited and lifting my head off the stock way too soon. 

im not so into tube red dot sights lately. maybe i just want something new. 

so its between the leupold delta point and the trijicon rmr. 

anyone have any issues with the tinted lens of the rmr thats dual illuminated? is it noticeable that much?

also anyone use the leupold deltapoint?

Check out the Burris Speed Bead or Fast Fire II. I have an Aimpoint mounted on an 870. I may stick the Trijicon 1.25-4x24 on there for a while though. My 870 has an adjustable stock, so the Trijicon may be a problem. The Burris FastFire II is available with steel side guards that help protect it from impact. Between the two you mentioned I'd get the Trijicon. I'm not sure what advantage it would have over the much less expensive Burris though.

 My sons turkey gun wears a fast fire II. It's a nice little sight , but not perfect. The brightness can't be adjusted manually which I don't like.  Also  the batteries are supposed to last a long time. However if they die the sight must be removed from the base and taken apart to replace the batteries. This is not as big of an issue if the sight will be taken off after turkey season is over. Just replace them before you remount the sight , and you should be alright.

 My gun is a full time turkey gun , and it wears a bushnell halo sight. The bushnell or eotech halo sight is a little larger than the fast fire II , but I like them much better. The brightness is manually adjustable. If the batteries get low ( reticle will blink for several hours before going dead) I can replace them as quick as I can get a new set out of my pocket. Also the circle dot reticle in the halo sight is much quicker for me to pick up , and get on target than a plain dot.
