Best slug gun scope?

I recently got a used Mossberg 500 12 gauge slugger with ported barrel. I would like to know what scope i should be looking at? My biggest concern is recoil. I absolutely want the scope to stay accurate, and I do NOT want to take a scope to the forehead when shooting! Price is a concern as well, the cheaper the better! I will likely look for a cheap used one. Is there anything I should look for or avoid? Thanks!

I have a straight Nikon 4x on my 835 Mossburg slug gun. I can shoot all day long 'if my shoulder permits' and have no accuracy problem. good luck. Stuffer

Re: Best slug gun scope?

If price is a concern, like it always is for me, then I would easily go with a Simmons Pro Diamond straight 4x or a 1.5 x 5.

I have both actually, and my whole crew uses them for the most part. We do ALOT of slug hunting, always doing drives, and we do ALOT of shooting!

Nobody ever has any problems with the Simmons, just set 2 more slug guns up for new guys joining us this year, so we bought 2 more Simmons Pro's.

If they didn't work well beleive me we wouldn't keep buying them. You can find them on sale sometimes for like $60-70 brand new. Search the net
