    I have been using a Fast Fire II and really like it.
    Note this has been on 22rf to date, nothing big yet.

    Have shot the fastfire on a 22lr and loved it, helped offset the eyesight shortcomings.

    Have a friend with a 500 and we have just been to chicken to attach one, Would love to see how one does on the xvr. Heck a 10mm slide is a rough place to earn a living, if it last on one I'd say it would last on anything.

    Got a Burris on a 30-06 Lone Eagle with about 80 rounds thru it. I still love it.

    I have an ultra-dot on a 44 mag, has been working fine for me, (better than some I've had in the past). This has handled heavy loads (buffalo bore) with no failures.

    I would say thier recoil is pretty close. The Lone Eagle has a brake on it. But the gun still lets you know when you pull the trigger.:D

    I even bought mine used it was setting on a 3.5" 12 gauge. That got shot a bunch.

    Never shot one. Most of the red dots except the real cheap ones. Usually will hold up. The truglows and like are made for bb guns.
