Jeff from TAOFLEDERMAUS takes a break from prototype shotgun slugs to answer an interesting question. Will a $75 ACOG clone hold zero on a 12 gauge shotgun?
Actual ACOG optics aren’t cheap, but these clones built for airsoft are usually sold for less than $100.
Jeff was surprised when he opened the box to find a seemingly decent piece of hardware instead of a plastic “happy meal toy.” Further inspection showed that the airsoft clone was more complex than expected, but the true test would come on the range.
Using a fully rifled Mossberg 500 loaded with 1 oz. slugs, Danny takes sights in on a target 23 yards away.
After pushing the target back to 50 yards, Danny and Jeff were please with the results. The cheap clones seems to be holding zero. “If you want to buy your kid a scope for his .22, he’d love you for that,” Jeff says about the clone.
