Default Best H&K MP5 A5 (umarex) Red dot sight

Does anyone have the pleasure of owning a MP5 that has put a red dot sight on and love it? At only .22cal LR I'm trying to figure out what the best red dot sight would be to mount for accuracy and "quick/ready fire" needs. I obviously don't need a $600 Nikon, but I don't want to risk "cheaping" out on a $50 sight unless I know someone else has a good recommendation. Thanks for your help!

I have bought plenty of 50 dollar red dots. They kick ass for plinking fun but aren't great for hard use. Look for some eotechs on impact guns.com

Check out Bushnell TRS25. About $80 price tag. I have one and works great on my AK.

Thanks guys. I'm sad to report that my first time at the firing range was last night.... It didn't fire. The firing pin wasn't even being engaged when pulling the trigger I have tried contacting H&K, but of course, they are all out of the office until tomorrow. Does anyone know if there is a trigger locking mech. on the MP5s? Maybe it's just locked d/t being imported...?

Pride Fowler also makes a great red dot sight for a really moderate price. I love mine.

Burris also makes quite a few popular ones in the sub $200 range
