When it comes to cheap red dot optics, my advice is to go as cheap as possible and buy several. That way, you will have replacements on hand when they invariably fail. For the most part, I haven’t seen much of a quality difference between $30 and $150.
For a .22LR, I doubt you’ll have many problems even with the cheap brands.
Personally, I have had good experiences with Primary Arms. They are the exception to my first statement. Check out their house brand “micro” models for $75-$80 each. I have used these(for plinking) on ARs with no problems.
