Are there any red dot scope options for a 50 cal handgun (510 GNR)?  Or should I go with a conventional pistol scope?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Trijicon RMR, great site, if your eyes are close to good.

It isn't a magnifying scope.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

I'd look at an Aimpoint Micro.

Speed. Same reason for having one on a long gun. You just have to line up the dot to the target, not two sights to the target.

I use a burris fastfire II on my Ruger Mk II.  Let's me co-witness with the front sight post, and it's fast.
