Wondering what folks are using when shooting full power 12 gauge loads
Consider me interested as well.

i've used my Aimpoint T1 on my Benelli M4 with no issues... Used a Larue low QD mount. Also used a Vortex Sparc 2 with no issues as well. In both cases its a low round count--maybe 100-150 rounds each. But in both cases it was with slugs and full power buckshot. So not a great deal of use...but no problems either way...
Still not convinced a red dot has an advantage on a shotgun.
Can't speak on other SG's but they're money on a turkey gun..
Ehhh...I've never missed a turkey in my entire life and I kill two a year pretty much every year for the last 20 years or so... They might work for you and I have no doubt they do. But I've done fine with a bead and about half the time I use a flintlock 20 gauge smooth bore blackpowder fowling piece...
Trijicon RMR on a Larue quick release worked fine on a Stoeger M3000 and a G3K clone
I like red dots on defensive carbines, but on a defensive shotgun I prefer a simple bead as first choice, and ghost ring sights like yours as a close second. That said, Aimpoint will hold up. I know they will take a lot of shooting with magnum turkey loads, so that dot will be just fine with buckshot or slugs. I really like Holosun products for an economical choice on 5.56 rifles, but I have no experience with them on a shotty.
Good luck. Be safe.
I’ve used a T1 and an RMR on Benellis without any issues
I've got a BSA w/ laser on my Maveric 88 w/ collapsible stock. It just sits in the safe, only 10 rounds shot with it. I'm not a shotgun guy.
I use Primary Arms Advanced Red Dot. It has a mount that has an opening underneath that allows me to see the Front Sight in case the Optic Fails (which has never happened in over 2 years of use).
