Sig is proud to provide Sig's men and women in the armed forces with a light-weight, enclosed red-dot sight that is as tough as it is micro. The ROMEO5 features Sig's MOTAC™ (Motion Activated Illumination) which increases battery life by shutting down the system when not in use and instantly activates the system when it senses the slightest vibration or movement. Your sight will be up when you go into action. The ROMEO5 will mount on any platform and the solid aluminum design will give peak performance and years of service. Military units trust the ROMEO5 when it counts, so why wouldn’t you?
it's been great; really crisp. I got another one on the way. Can't think of a reason to spend like $600 on a dot so I'll take two of these!! Check out its torture test on youtube. They froze it in a block of ice, shot at the side of it with birdshot etc. I'll never treat it THAT bad. The warranty is great too. Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore RULES too. Thanks.
We can compare apples to apples here as far as the Sig Sauer Romeo5 and Aimpoint Pro series.
1. Cost 128.00 for the Romeo5 and over 600.00 for the Aimpoint.
2. Clarity of the reticule on the Romeo5 is actually a tad better than the Aimpoint.
3. Submersion factors, I would never feel comfortable putting an Aimpoint in Saltwater much less fresh water.
4. Both get the job done but the Romeo5 even has more features which are critical like MOTAC. Aimpoint does not offer that and the Romeo5 weights much less.
5. Aimpoint is battle proven no doubt but I would not think twice about bringing my Sig Romeo5 into any combat situation.
I got my Romeo5 a few days ago. The quality was apparent out of the box. If you can get it under $140 don’t hesitate. I’ll keep using Sportsman’s Outdoor Superstore in the future; always a smooth experience.
Awesome price for a great red dot! Shipped quick, great price. Easy mounting and easy to set up, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good AR set up at a reasonable price.
This is an awesome red dot. Well built and packed with features. I love the sleep mode with the motion activation. I’ll be buying another one for sure!
Fast shipping, wonderful product, brand new in the box. Love it !! Thank you.
I think the Romeo5 is one of the best, most underrated red dots out there. I caught it on sale for the lowest price I've ever seen! Great price for a great product. It showed up really quickly too. Ordered it on a Wednesday and it showed up the next Monday.
Works and holds zero perfectly fine! After thousands of shots still perfect! The high heat in Florida and rain does not affect the functioning! I will buy again!
Impressed from the get go. Put on Ruger AR-556 and it lined up with sights right out of box. Clear dot, not like other guy said. Like the auto on feature. Kinda hard to believe 40,000 hours but guess we'll see. Prefer it was not made in China, but if I could justify paying for Aimpoint, I'd buy one. Cheap tractor rifle and cheap red dot. Happy as can be.
Sure there are better red dots out there, but for the money you cant beat this optic. The cost 3-5 times as much as this little gem. If an Aimpoint isn't in your budget, this is the next best thing. I'm glad I added it to my collection. You will be too.
I have two of these now. Both of them have a star effect around the dot, but it's not as bad as some of the others that I have had. I guess until you get up into the true holographic sights, you are going to get that to some degree. That being said, they are easy to use, easy to zero, and seem to hold their zero once sighted in. I say that they seem to because I have them mounted to a .5.56 pistol and rifle. Neither of which has a bad recoil, nor have they been beaten around in the woods hunting or during competitions. So I cannot attest to their durability under harsher circumstances.
But for the price to toss it on my beat it up AR, I couldn't say no. Love Sig firearms. They are the best optics. I feel they are just trying to get into a market segment they don't belong. My biggest complaint is it's made in China. Let's see how it holds up with the way I play.
I came across this little gem for $139.99 shipped so I grabbed it right away. I mounted it on my AR and it was dead on zero at 50 yards right out of the box. The MOTAC feature, great optics, Sig quality and small size make it a great low price option.
