I bought a new Mossberg 930 SPX tactical shotgun a while back and I am currently considering what type of optic to mount on the accessory rail that sits atop the receiver.  I'd like to install a low profile optic in order to be able to co-witness with the iron sites.  I am considering the Burris FastFire optic but it seems that people either love or hate this product after reading a number of on-line message boards about this product.  Would this optic be suitable and is it dependable for my 930 SPX?  What other options should I consider? 
 
Any comments are greatly appreciated!  Cool
 
PS
I really don't want to spend a fortune on this optic, since I plan only to use it on my shotgun or in a worst case scenario, see if I could put it on my AK-47.

Why do you feel you need to "co-witness" the optic with the front sight of a shot gun, friend? I never understood the whole co witness deal on non combat rifles or shot guns, but no offense intended. Good golly, the battery life on certain Aimpoint's is 50,000 hours and the optic it self is nearly bullet proof and combat proven. Maybe I just don't get it......  Wink

Get this and forget about it.

Aren't the Aimpoints a bit big and won't allow for co-witnessing of the iron sites?

The 930 SPX is a tactical shotgun and this is why I want to attempt to co-witness with the iron sites, if possible.  Aside from home defense I am considering taking up 3 - Gun Matches again.

If your concerned with the size of the Aimpoints, why not consider the Micro Dot? Co-witness shouldn't be a problem depending on the mount you choose.
