Red dot suggestions for Keltec KSG

Hi - I've got a new KelTec KSG bullpup 12ga I have nicknamed "the Beast"- great shotgun. I attached cheap flip-up AR-style sites on the upper rail and after 20 rounds through it
- the front site would flip out of position every other shot or so
- on round 20 the rear site, the pin in the "flip" mechanism fell out and the site disintegrated on me

Obviously not made for the recoil of the Beast

I'd love to put a red-dot on there, but have little experience w/them and have no idea how reliable they are on a firearm that has heavy recoil like this.

Any hints/suggestions?



When was the last time you heard somebody say "Go ahead, it's a free country"?

For a red dot you can't beat what Aimpoint offers. I would also checkout EOTech holographic sights. I find that I am a bit faster with more hits on target with a holographic sight.

Aimpoint if you can swing it, if not check out Primary Arms or Vortex for some cheaper alternatives.

I've run a Aimpoint Micro and Primary Arms Micro on an 870 and they both stood up to the recoil fine.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: Red dot suggestions for Keltec KSG

I'm fairly certain you'll have to go quality on that, ie namely the brands people mentioned above. The recoil would probably destroy most cheaper red dots. I've had a tru-glo $30 dollar red dot sight on my .300 blackout pistol and its held up but thats probably not as punishing as the recoil from that.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Spend the money the first time around and you won't always second guess if you made the right choice.

I'd look at the aimpoint t-1/h-1 or the burris fast fire 3.

The ff3 is a great little sight and will allow you to shoot quicker and more accurately.
