I have a Bushnell Trophy and have had no regrets. It's not clear to me how any other reddot would improve on it.

I have a bushnell as well. Not sure if it's the Trophy or not, I think I paid about $90 for it almost 3 years ago. Yes, it is a good red dot. It's adjustable red or green, with a dot, or a plus sign or a circle or a circle with a dot inside. Pretty neat, but bigger than the Ultra dot. Maybe not in weight but in bulk.

I bought a Bushnell Trophy from Midway a few weeks ago for my recently acquired Mk II slabside.

Its still not mounted because I determined I needed 30mm Ruger rings and an extended Ruger base mount for my Mk II. This red dot comes with rings for grooved receivers, so it should be fine for a 10/22.
==================
Edit/Update: After installing the combo, I decided the 30mm red dot mounted on medium high Ruger rings / extended scope base not to my liking (too high). Instead, I ordered an Ultradot 25 (1") red dot which will mount with Ruger low profile rings included with my slabside. The Bushnell sight will move to a rifle, possibly a new Ruger Target Tactical. ;)

I have JPoints and C-More Railways and I am happy, they are both about $250 so may be out of your price range.

I've used the Bushnell Trophy with good results and it's in the lower price range.

C-More Red Dot. Extremely reliable and the best sight adjustment in the industry IMO.

Just bought the Bushnell from Cabellas. I looked at the other ones their, but the Bushnell seemed to be much better made. 89 bucks and I had a $15 coupon.

Madd-trapper, did you consider the Millet SP-2? Another member, in another post, bought one and likes it.

Another vote for an Ultra Dot here...a bit expensive if used only for plinking, but great for a rugged hunting 10/22.

Have a Primary Arms M3 clone on my SR-22 and have been very happy with it. $69 for the sight. I think I paid $85 including the high mount and shipping.

The CenterPoint reddot found at wal-mart is a good one. Has an angled front eye piece and would look good on a tacticle type rifle.
