Does the standard 1" Ultradot Red Dot fit the factory Ruger Super Redhawk rings, as far as length of the Ultradot's tube? Thanks in advance guys.

It fits like it was designed for the application.

If your factory rings are "Brand New and Unused" you can contact Ruger and swap them out for 30mm ones. That is the road I went down with my 480 Super RedHawk. It has a 30mm UltraDot mounted on it. If buying again today I would have went one more step up and ordered a 30mm MatchDot II. The main advantage when used on a SRH would be the additional 2 MOA Dot Size for Low Light. It produces less bloom.
If you looked through both a 1" "25mm" as well as a 30mm at the same time to get a comparison. You would go with a 30mm. If your rings are used and cannot be traded for 30mm ones is a big factor.

I believe you would need an extension ring for that one.

If you shoot with both eyes open, the tube size isn't really a factor. I have no problem with a 1" UltraDot.

I use the 1? and use my eyes open but that matchdot with smaller dot would come in handy. The ruger store sells extra rings. Reasonable and 30mm are easily acquired.

Are the ultradots fairly light weight?

The Ultradot 30 weighs in around 4 ounces.

Here's an Ultradot 30 mounted on a .454 SRH:
