What red dot is most reliable and holds zero, costing less than $100.00???? I'm looking to top off my new 22 autopistol.

Tru-Glo's new Tactical Red Dot (that has a red or green reticle)~!

They are not expensive, some where between $69.95-84.95, and are quite
good to use for plinking/target shooting. ;) :D

I have a Tasco Red Dot on my Ruger Mark III.

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'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.

It might go on the Ruger later. I think I bought the last 2. got them a week ago.


hexidismal.. yours really looks like a ray gun there. :)

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.

I tried the SP1 on my .22's but found I prefer a reflex sight. I've got a Bushnell Holosight but they're no longer made. This looks promising:

I'm hoping it's a fluke. It might not be able to handle to slide action. Will be contacting PA, this weekend to see about a replacement.
