I have a friend who is really into shotguns and is looking to start wild pig hunting, at night of course. He has tasked me with finding a NV sight option for his shotgun. If you have any insight I would be thankful.
He did not mention the price he was looking to spend, so $0 to $3000 would probably be within reason. The shotgun would be a Mossberg pump if that matters.

PVS14 mounted on his head and an IR laser on the shotgun.

Thats what I would do but he wants a sight much like a Eotech sized unit. Then he said he would like to use the bead through it. I informed him that was a no go.

What about LaserLytes Center Mass laser system. Anyone try it?

Not sure if your serious about that. I'm thinking I'm going to convince him to get a side mounted OTAL-C and a PVS-7/14 with a night cap.

Ok, PVS-14 on head and Eotech sized Eotech on shotgun.

How well will a PVS-14 handle the recoil of a 12ga? The Eotech/PVS-14 mounted combo sounds good. OR, an Aimpoint/PVS-14 combo.

Not a shot, pardon the pun. Most will advise against .223 recoil.

I have an AN PVS4 that has been refurbished by TNVC who also put a brand new generation 3 tube inside and it is supposed to be rated for .308. So, maybe that fits the bill as it should be able to handle the recoil of a shotgun. It's a little bit bigger and heavier than an EoTech Holosight, though. However, the field of view and clarity is outstanding and it has adjustable cross hairs. It's much better than looking through the tiny 19mm tube of my AN PVS14.

The PVS 4 is even rated for the M2 .50 cal. so I think it would work fine on a 12 gauge. It is bulky and heavy though.

My mistake. I thought we were only talking about 14’s.

If he tasked you to do it and rejected your suggestion Id let him figure this out for himself. He is not going to be happy with the size and weight of a PVS4. There is no "use the bead" sight option. Just let him try to use your PVS 14 and see for himself how ridiculous his request is.

A bright green laser would make skeet shooting at night look like a lightsaber battle.

There is a user called Sapper Titan on the Texas Hunting Forums that has NVD, or maybe Thermal, on a Rem 870.
