For a red dot, I haven't seen anything that compares to Aimpoint. I am not a fan of the holosights, though they work well, I just don't like them.

Aimpoint's the best (@ over $350) and the BSA is the worst (@ > $40).

As for which is better between the holo & the dot, that's a personal preference issue. (Also, bushnell bought out eotech and they have the same product for about $100 cheaper while pretty much the same thing. Might want to also check out bushnell's red dot, I heard it was reasonable for the money.)

nssa4914 no offense when I say this but putting a aimpoint on a shotgun is like using a scope for carpet bombing. I think I would try ghost rings first IMO( hope no offense is taken):cool:

TNT, I have Ghost rings on my Benelli M2 right now and found out the hard way that they don't work in low light :mad:
PS My benelli can drill golf balls at 100 yards with Lightfield Sabot's :)

C-more, Gilmore, OKO, Aimpoint, and probably a couple others. You get what you pay for in a dot sight just as you do in a rifle scope, there is no comparison between the cheap units and the costly units.

I stand corrected, carry on:D have you thought of this http://www.williamsgunsight.com/gunsights/shotgun.htm this might be better in low light
