recommend a red dot sight for a saiga 12

Post by nrv216 » 09 Jan 2012, 18:14

My buddy wants to put a red dot on his saiga twelve and doesn't want to spend a ton of money :facepalm: . Any suggestions, red dot sights are not my department. Thanks.

Primary Arms.

Burris Fastfire II.

In opposite order of recommendation.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

How does that burris hold up to 12ga recoil?

i would personally look for something bigger for a long gun. with the new mini red dots out, they weigh just a little more than a burris ff while giving a larger sight window.

I like the FF ii for the money, what's his price range ? Is 400 too much ? What about 200 ?

+1. My S12 has good sights, though. For fun I put on a BSA cheapie and it held up just fine. I prefer a traditional laser simply for shooting from the hip :p
