I have had 4 scopes on my 995 and all of them have taken a crap on me. I have now switched back to factory irons as they are accurate and easy to use.
I have the magazine pouch on my stock, so I just took an extra battery, left it in the blister pack, and slipped it under the elastic. That way, I've got an unopened spare with me wherever I go. :wink:BSA Red Dot with a dead battery
Or if the battery dies or is dying and you cannot find another one SHTF situation just carefully mark where the dot is on the scope and TADAAA you have a spot to aim onI can't stress enough the importance of iron sights.
If you can't use iron sights then if something happens to your optics when it counts then you're hoo-dooed. But optics are nice. I can't dispute that.
I've got irons on one of my 995's and the other I have a red-dot.
Primal you sure have had bad luck on them. I have a BSA red dot on a 12 gauge pump shotgun and it has survived over 30 rds so far. :shock:I have had 4 scopes on my 995 and all of them have taken a crap on me. I have now switched back to factory irons as they are accurate and easy to use.
