Update: replaced the cheapo mini red dot with a mid-priced Vector with motion sense shake-awake and auto shutoff. It’s a little bigger but it works well, great easy sight picture with both eyes open, and very fast target acquisition, so I think I finally got this home defense system where it has everything needed to function well in its primary role if the SHTF. And a lot of fun at the range. Welcoming all comments, let me know what you guys think good or bad.
I was all set to buy a KSG Tactical yesterday, but I really don't shot shotgun enough to justify the expense of purchase and another $200 to ATF, couple that with the potential 1 year waiting to take possession. It'll remain on the wall at the LGS.
You aren't my buddy come back from the dead are you?Thanks for the kind words but all the credit belongs to dfariswheel. It was his idea/suggestion, I just made it reality. As for the red dot, I’ve found the shake awake feature is not functioning. I’m making arrangements with the mfg. to get a replacement. That sucks. But I’m just not (can’t) gonna spend even $200-600 for a sight. This one was just under $100. I understand where you’re coming from about skimping on sights. But I got bills to pay too! Plus I’m saving for an AR pistol! So I gotta compromise best I can. It’s better than the $39 red dot! (Which is for sale if anyone wants it. Or I’ll keep it for a spare I’m sure it’ll come in handy someday.
Yes the sight will only come on if I press the + or - buttons. Sucks that I have to deal with the mfg. in China. But I got it really fast, Only 3 days from China! I haven’t tried the auto shut off, it’s supposed to shut off after an hour of no movement. I’m stingy with batteries lol.
That’s cool. I saw some of those on Amazon.Who is the manufacturer?
I got some really good service out of Feyachi and they even are allowing me to choose from a number of their items to test out for free so long as I leave a review. Was thinking about one of their red dot sights.
