TruGlo Gobble-Stopper Red-Dot Scope
Give this one a pass.
There are some good qualities about this however none of them can make up for the fact thatafter it's sighted in it goes out of sight extremely after 2 shots with my 3 1/2 inch turkey loads.

so far so good
Mounted this scope myself on a remington 870, using a mount i ordered online, had to remove the existing trigger pins, and attach the new mount.
the scope mounted easily, i did not boresight it, just winged it. set up a target at 25 yards, fired two shots (2-3/4 inch rifled slugs out of a smoothbore barrel with a improved choke.) the shots were 2 inches high, 2 inches left. adjusted the windage and elevation (1 click at 25 yards is 1/4 inch)..the wrong way, so i was now 4 inches off, redid everything, and the next shot was dead center. fire two more and the were all within 1 inch of center. i then fired about a dozen rounds of various turkey loads, and also a bunch of 7-1/2's for the heck of it.
then fired a few more slugs, it was still on.
Cons: the lens covers were working loose, i will slap a ring of electrical tape or something to keep from loosing them. also, the spare battery cap was screw on supertight, had to use pliers just to loosen it, so loosen it before you go hunting, hard to get a grip on the cap also, i scuffed mine some with the pliers, no biggie though.
Overall so far i am quite pleased, have not tried it in the field yet, but i think it will be just fine.

Good turkey scope
I purchased this scope to use on my TC Encore 12ga. turkey barrel. Have not had a chance to use on old tom yet but I am sure it will do the trick. The intergrated rings make the scope easy to mount. The brightness of either the green or red dot can be adjusted for any light conditions. I gave this product a five star rating even though I had a problem with the flip-up caps. They are to loose and will come off easily. I replaced them with Butler Creek caps and now am completely satisfied with this scope.

I put this on an Remington 870 12GA on a remington scope mount. Was right on at 30 yards out of the box. Put the dot on a strutters neck on opening day here in Ohio and that was all she wrote. If you get an early morning bird I think you would be out of luck as you can't see through it without much light. The front cap on mine fell off somewhere in the woods so that is kind of a bummer, but other than that it has been great.
