I recently looked at both of the scopes and decided on the VX-I. I thought the glass was much better than the Rifleman and it's not much more money.

Re: Leupold 2x7 - Rifleman Shotgun vs. VXI Shotgun?

I have a leupold vx-II 2-7x on my muzzleloader, a Nikon shotgun 2-7x on my slug gun (purchased because they were out of leupolds at Scheels and I was impatient but couldn't be happier), and my dad replaced a red dot with a leupold shotgun vx-II 2-7x on his slug gun. I don't think you can go wrong with leupold and I agree with the earlier comment that the thicker crosshairs are better. Since my father switched to a leupold he has been lights out on deer. You should check the mounts, rings fairly often as the heavy recoil can work things loose. Shouldn't be too bad on a 20 gauge heavy barrel. A buddy of mine swears by his ultimate slam but ample range was needed to verify where it actually hit at the longer ranges. I probably rambled more than helped but you really can't go wrong here I believe.

4 days to kickoff,
