it doesn't HAVE to be crazy expensive, but it certainly can be.
when i decided to get into a red dot, i didn't want to spend a fortune on something i might not like.
i ended up with a millet SP1 red dot.
i actually got a used one for $25, and i bought a new one which will cost about $70 or so. it will work fine on standard ruger 1" RINGS. it is a 3moa and it works great for me out to about 50 yards, beyond that (for me) it might as well be irons. it really does work well for quick shots.
i am satisfied with it for the price. hard to find quality inexpensive ones that will work on your ruger rings.
in the mini gallery, i have a pic of it on my mini. hope this helps!
