I've seen them online, for about $40. It's held zero well.

I have that exact same Tasco BKRD30 on my Neos. They can actually be had for as low as $30 if you really check around. I probably wouldn't trust it for applications with heavier recoil, but on the .22 it seems to hold zero just fine. I would agree though that the Tru-Glo models are probably of better quality, for a slightly higher price. I'm totally happy with the Tasco though.
I have that same Tasco red dot on my Ruger MkII 10" and i really like like it. I got mine at wal-mart for around $35.

I've read some great reviews on the Primary Arms Aimpoint clones: http://primaryarms.com/product.sc?productId=402&categoryId=419

I have a BSA that looks identical to Greg's Tasco. Probably the same model inside. Mine has worked well and held zero.
The only problems are that it is bulky and the included battery I'd only good for about a hour. Buy a spare right away.

Smaug.. too bad about battery life. Mine has been holding up great. knock, knock
cOnspire.. for a couple dollars less (and a little wait) you can get this
I just put it on my 1911.
It might go on the Ruger later. I think I bought the last 2. got them a week ago.

Millett SP1 works great for me. Nice clear optics, crisp 3 MOA dot...

I've used this $25 BSA for the last 5 or 6 years on my Buckmark. It has a 30mm tube and a relatively small dot, probably 2 or3 MOA that works well for me for bullseye shooting. If I could do my part it would put them in the 10 ring every time.
