Red dot scope for Bisley Hunter

I recently bought a Ruger Bisley Hunter in 44 mag. It comes with the rings for a scope. I would like to get a red dot type of scope that will work with the factory rings. Does anyone know of any? Also what does anyone recommend for a red dot that is not to expensive but will hold upto a 44 mag.
Does anyone make a red dot in a silver finish to match the gun?

I forget who at the moment, but I have seen adaptors that attach to Ruger's rib and allow use of Weaver style rings/mounting.

I did a research - for the same gun actually - and Ultradot is the one I will get when I have the funds for it.

I have a Millet SP1 on mine. The SP1 comes in silver or black. It was on my SRH 44 mag before. Fits in low rings on the Bisley hunter. Holds zero just fine and the illumination settings work for all conditions. The dot is 3 mil. Although not as perfectly round as dots I have seen on other red dots, it works fine for me and the SP1 doesn't cost much.

One of those s a Weigand.

Be tough to beat an Ultradot for being magnum proof at a reasonable price, considering they have a lifetime warranty, which is rare for a red dot. Have used them on many rifles and magnum pistols.

This is what I got for mine. I originally put a Leupold VX variable on it, but my old eyes couldn't deal with the parallax or eye relief, especially if I turned up the power.
Haven't had a chance to shoot with the Ultradot yet, but I can get a good sight picture pretty quickly with it.

I use Ultra Dots on my S&W 617 and 586 and I'm very happy with them.

Bushnell Trophy Match with Weigend mount (SUPER REDHAWK) Looks bulky but works great.
