Going to be picking up a Browning Buckmark rifle and was going to be placing a red dot on it.
Question is, what is a quality Red dot that will be mainly used for up to 50 yards.  I'm looking for something that has a changeable recticle, budget is about $150, and it doesn't have to change color.  I know nothing about red dots, and was hoping to find one that is a good quality so I don't have to buy a new one every other year.  Advice is needed and is greatly appreciated.Yippee

I don't have first hand experience with this scope but alot of guys who I have faith in have found this to be a very decent red dot at a decent price.

One of the guys just got one of those and I was thinking he said it wasnt really that bright of a dot.  I have only had aimpoints and they are awesome but I have been looking at the Bushnell dots and so far I like what I see and have one  or the 1-4x24 on order.

I emailed some people about the vortex and it doesn't have changeable recticles, so that one is out..
 
Right now i'm thinking the bushnell is looking like the front runner.  What about the aimpoints?  Are they a good quality scope with changeable recticles?

My favorite red dot for a .22 is the C-More Railway.  I have one mounted on my VQ .22.  The Railway is nice because it basically adds a Weaver mount to the actual sight.  The dot size can be changed by swapping the diode module.  I usually use a 2-MOA or 4-MOA dot on most .22s.
