    Would you advise for or against a converted Saiga 12 Semiautomatic shotgun for home defense?

    Do Holosights such as the Eotech hold up under the repetitive force of a 12 gauge shotgun?

    It's no secret that some unscrupulous prosecutors and plaintiffs' lawyers will make a big "evil assault weapon" deal out of a gun that looks like an AK47. I don't think it's insurmountable at trial, but it is one more aspect to deal with there.

    On the mechanical side, I've seen some Saigas that worked and some that didn't.
    Haven't seen enough of them with EoTachs or other battery-operated sights to know how they'll hold up in the long run.

    Wishing I could have been of more help,

    Ok, fair enough.

    Thanks.
