If I were to get into competition I might consider a larger MOA dot sight as a larger dot is a little faster to pick up and align on a 4, 6, or 8, inch plate.

From what I have heard SGW does some fine work and I have no doubt he could come up with a set of iron sights that would be perfect if that is what you are wanting. You can put a set of iron sights on yourself but it is nice to have a set that actually looks good together and function properly. A good gunsmith can do that for you.

It comes down to weather or not you are going to use red dot or irons. I upgraded my factory sights to Williams firesights before giving in and getting a red dot. I should have saved my money and gone directly to the red dot. It really makes a difference in my grouping abilities and the sheer fun factor of shooting.
Probably going with a red dot. Budget is an issue. Have no idea what to go with. Thanks for the help.

The Bushnell TRS-25 costs in the $60s on Amazon and gets great reviews from myself and everyone else. I don't know of a better dot for the price.

+1 ... that is the one I've gone with too. I like the tube style better than the reflex. I used to have a scope on one of my handguns so this worked better for me also.

Do you use the Weaver style solid base? I think it's a RUG 90228.

Here is what I have settled on (tried a few including the TRS-25 (too hard for me to pick up the dot.) I have 3 Mark II 6 7/8 targets and a different red dot on each for different uses. Cheap Tasco 40mm which is great for falling plates (large view and easy to pick up the dot Ultra dot for bullseye league; Millet SP1 for general plinking.

Do you use it without the riser,? They are both the same price on amazon.
Thanks, ~JJ~

I know it's inexpensive but I've had great luck with this Red Dot on my MkIII 22/45.
I compete with it shooting steels at my local range and do very well.

Non riser... I see no reason to make it any higher. This one---> random Amazon ad... as an example. --->https://www.amazon.com/Bushnell-Trop.../dp/B00CIY7JAU
