Night Vision scope for a shotgun

Postby corie on Mon May 23, 2011 9:51 am

I am looking at a decent night scope for a night pig hunt with a Saiga 12. I am considering this: ... scope.html

It has the range I am looking for, however the bigger question is whether it will survive the bring mounted on a Saiga, plus whether it can be sighted in on an AK style scope mount. If anyone has any better suggestions I would love to hear them.

Bigger issue than the recoil affecting the scope would be the eye relief. That scope needs your eye right up to the cup and that may be 1.5-2'' from the ocular, not just the sleeve. The recoil might send the scope back into your eye and possibly injure you. You may want to contact ATN directly to confirm what they recommend for a 12 gauge shotgun.
