With enough looking and lots of luck you may find one that cheap. About the cheapest I found was in the $35 range, I think.

Wally World is usually your best bet for inexpensive red dots. But I did get a decent Holographic site with 4 reticles and 11 brightness settings from Big 5 Sporting goods a couple of weeks ago for about 30 bucks. And it held up to my 995 for about 150 rounds or so that weekend at the range. So if you look around you can find decent ones for about what you're looking to spend.

This page shows where you can find their stores. http://big5sportinggoods.shoplocal.com/ ... %3d2503823

Hi Point sells a BSA red dot for $35 on their sight.
That's free shipping too by the way.
