Scope? For slug gun ...

Any suggestions? Something that will hold zero and would like to keep under $100 if possible. It will be mounted on an 870.

I still have the Bantam that came with my mossberg. It has not lost zero and has been fired well over 200 times. I have the permanent bruise to prove it

Have a trophy red dot on my slug gun. I think around 80-90 bucks. Holds perfect zero, quick on target.

Re: Scope? For slug gun ...

I bought a cheap cabelas branded scope(trekker?) 4 years ago, think I paid $40 for it from the bargain cave. I have it zeroed at 100 its been zeroed since I put it on.

My 870 takes a beating every year, and has lots of rounds thru it each season.

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

I have the Nikon 2-7 on my 870 as well. I picked up a lightly used one on ebay for $60. Great scope and can't beat it at that price.

Make sure you get a scope with 3.5" to 4" of eye relief. Otherwise, you may leave a blood trail!

i have a million year old tasco on my 870, been there for 10 years. everybody said it wouldnt last a year, well its still here and never failed. if i was to buy new, it would be the Nikon. i got one for my ithaca, but gave it to my cousin for his 870. great scope for the price.

Re: Scope? For slug gun ...

I've had a cheap 4x Bushnell sportsview on mine for years. I originally bought it for a 22. I needed a scope so I figured I would try it. It's been on there for about 8 years now.

Not sure I would want to do that with a cheap 3-9. IMO a fixed power scope holds up better because of less parts.
