Advice on a Red Dot for Ruger 22/45

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I've never been able to use a reflex sight outdoors because light on the lens wipes out the reticle. So I'm on to a red dot. Though I use them all the time on rifles, I've never tried one on a pistol. Are there any suggestions for relatively inexpensive units that are smaller and lighter in weight? Are there any units designed specifically for pistols?

I use a Bushnell TRS 25 (model # may not be correct but you should get the idea), Works well on my 22/45..

Try a vortex. They make little ones for use on pistols.

I have the Burris FF III mounted on my Browning Hunter and with the shade installed I really like the sight. I can quickly locate the red dot by looking above the green FO front sight. The dot has 4 settings for brightness & I chose the 3 MOA dot size.
