I love my red dot scope that I use on my .22, but I hate having to turn it on an off all the time.

When I get my 995 I want to mount a 1x scope so i can still have the pull up speed and shoot with both eyes, but not worry about turning it on or killing the battery.

Anyone know where to find one?

Yeah, I've been searching for one for a little while now. I can't find anything. I guess I could just modify the iron sights. I can't pull up and find my target well with the original ones, and I find it hard to keep both eyes open with them. I only had a half day to practice with it, but I could tell that I don't really like them.

1x sights are designed to be used with both eyes open and for quick target acquisition. Crosshairs are more for a magnified scope where the intent is max accuracy, that is why most no magnification scopes use a dot instead of crosshairs.

The original "red dot" scope, solar powered:

If you can afford them, Trijicon offers several models that are powered by glowing tritium vials, good for 15 years of use:

Aimpoint also advertises 50,000 hour battery life on their latest models, just leave it on all the time and change the battery every 5 years.
