Mossberg 590 Red Dot
I have a Mossberg 590. I realized for the price of purchasing a ghost ring kit and having a gunsmith solder it on, I could get a weaver sight base and red dot. I guess I have a few questions:
1. I was more interested in a reflex type red-dot like the Trijicon Docter or Burris Fast-Fire (2 or 1). This shotgun will be purposed into HD and range practice. It will NOT be a duty weapon and I don't see heavy shot counts in it's future. Are either of the sights mentioned above durable enough? I know that the Docter used polymer lenses whereas the Burris is glass. I will admit that the price of the Burris is very attractive to me. And I like the idea that I could pop either off and put them on my TacSol Browning Buckmark .22
2. If the Burris is "good enough," would the picatinny rail protectors that are an accessory interfere with the cover? I think one of the features of the Burris that I really like is that snapping the cover on it acts like a hybernate mode.
3. Finally, I do have Tasco Propoint PDTS132 (I love it - thanks for the suggestion, guys!) for my .22 pistol. Would this be a good enough temporary solution, or would it just rattle itself to death. I might be also wrongly assuming that acquisition through a tubed scope on a shotgun might be harder...
