I wouldn't. A shotgun shooting slugs has more kick than a rifle. A lot of rifle scopes are not made to take that abuse. More importantly most shotgun scopes give you more eye relief so you don't get kissed by the scope. I've seen some nasty scope cuts from scoped shotguns. There are a lot of great shotgun scopes out there and some like Tasco are cheap. I just bought a Nikon 2X7 Prostaff on Sunday. Can't wait to shoot my Son's new 20 ga with this scope! Good luck.
i bought a new nikon a few years ago. had all intentions of putting it on my gun untill a younger family member got his first slug gun and i gave it to him. ive used a junk tasco on the same gun for almost 13 years and somehow it has never failed. that scopes had WAY too many rounds through it.
You can absolutely use a riflescope on your slug gun. I would recommend that you use a little bit better of a scope than a traditional Tasco or something in that range. Slug guns kick hard and really put scopes to the test. Good luck with your decision and let me know if you need any further assistance.
Same here. I have an older Tasco on a Winchester 1300. Its not the brightest or the best but I haven't had to touch the settings for at least 10 years and have killed a pile of deer with it. With the newer/better slugs I like the new shotgun scopes with the marks on the reticle for 150 and 200 yds.
About 12-13 years ago I bought a cheap 4x Bushnell sportsview for my 22. 8 years ago I bought a slug gun and decided to try the Bushnell on it. I even used premium $7 Tasco rings. It's all still there and still working just fine. I shoot about a box of slugs a year out of it. I haven't touched an adjustment knob since the initial sight in.
