You all here seem to know your stuff so maybe you can help me out.

I have Browning BL-22 which currently has a 32mm red/green dot sight it.  It was inherited from a Marlin 1894c when the Marlin got a Bushnell holosight. The sight says A-1 Optic on the side and has a reversible mount that can fit both a 3/8" dovetail or weaver rail.  The rifle is used for plinking and varmit control.

There is nothing wrong with the sight but I'm wondering what other options I might have.  Especially something a little lower.  Maybe a reflex type sight.  The only firm requirements are it fit a 3/8" dovetail and, because the dovetail on the BL-22 is only about 4" long, the mount base cannot be longer than that.  Beyond that I'd like to keep the price below $200 and it should be reliable enough to take few bumps and bruises.  Bonuses for a circle-dot or a cross-dot reticle (personally I think Eotech has the best in the market right now for a rifle but that's probably too much to hope for :-).

I got a good look at one of these at the last gun show and I think it would be a good choice for you however you may need to get the adapters that change the 11mm dovetail to weaver which then allows you to mount virtually anything.  If you really want to stay low you might look at this plus some rimfire rings - I'm thinking the tube would be 30mm but you better ask so you get the right rings to go to the 22 rail.

Thank you.

The 1x32 Trophy looks a lot like a Trijicon ACOG.  Probably overpowering for a BL-22 but it would enhance an SU-16.  The 1x28 looks promising if it will fit in the 4" limit.  I have an older  Bushnell Trophy on another rifle that I can check and I'm pretty sure B-Square and Millet both make 30mm rings for a 3/8" dovetail.
