Burris Speed Bead & Fast Fire 2 are same sight, just mount differently.

If the gun will be used only for turkeys, I prefer a small foot-print scope with a 20mm objective. Using magnification of 4x or less, there is zero need for an objective larger than 20mm, as it is only a liability. My main turkey gun has a Nikon Monarch 1.5-4.5x 20mm objective scope on it. This particular model is no longer manufactured, but I like it much better than some of the current models being "marketed" as "turkey" scopes.

I do not like the larger "red dot" scopes, but love the Burris Fast Fires, which for the money, don't think you can beat them. They're tough and great quality.

Here's a scope very similar to the discontinued Nikon Monarch:

Note the small "footprint" of the 20mm objective on this Leupold 1-4 x 20mm scope.

I have a speedbead and like it. I was forced into a red dot sight, and tried the eotech but it was awful. I wish I could shoot beads on the new gun, but the pistol grip stock caused major issues for me

The only advantage i can see with the Eotech is it takes AA battery's .

I have both and i like the Eotech on my M4 very well but it's too big for my turkey gun. The gun weighs enough as it is
