Reviews [First Look] SIG Sauer Romeo-X Series Red Dot Sights David Lane July 19, 2023 1 Comments, Join the Conversation NEW from SIG Sauer comes the Romeo-X series of dots! Based on the recently released Romeo-M17 red dots for the U.S. Military, the Romeo-X red dots come in two sizes and are packed with features. The two new dots come as the ROMEO-X Compact cut to fit micro-compact pistols with the Shield RMSc footprint, and the ROMEO-X Pro cut to fit DeltaPoint Pro footprints. Both dots feature a distortion-free aspheric glass with a patent-pending Beryllium Copper flexure-arm adjustment system, in 7075 aircraft-grade aluminum housing with machined anti-reflection grooves on shooter facing surfaces. The reticle has a 2 MOA dot and a 32 MOA circle, 15 brightness settings including night vision settings, and a side-mounted CR1632 battery compartment with a threaded battery cap. Additionally, the ROMEO-X Series offers a low deck height for standard-height iron sight co-witness, has a minimum continuous runtime of 20,000 hours at medium brightness setting and utilizes MOTAC™ (Motion Activated Illumination), MAGNETAC™ (Magnetic Activation), and D.A.R.C™ (Dark Adaptive Reticles & Coatings) technologies. “The ROMEO-X family of red dot sights is completely optimized for everyday carry and built using the same technology and testing standards of our mil-spec optics that are designed to withstand the rigors of the battlefield,” said Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “The ROMEO-X Series is designed for ease of use beginning with the side battery placement leading to an overall low deck height of the sight. This profile gives the optic an extremely low position when mounted to the slide for a full sight picture and co-witness with the existing standard-height iron sights. The ROMEO-X Compact and ROMEO-X Pro are engineered, tested, and built-in Oregon to be the ultimate aiming solution for EDC.” ROMEO-X Compact: Clear Aperture Diameter: 24mm Reticle: 2MOA Dot / 32 MOA Circle Lens Type: Asphere Illumination Settings: 15 ( 12 Day / 3NV) Overall Length: 1.62 inches Overall Width: .94 inches Overall Height: 1.23 inch Mounting Footprint: SHIELD™ RMSc Weight (w/o battery): 1.0 ounce MSRP: $519.99 ROMEO-X Pro: Clear Aperture Diameter: 24mm Reticle: 2MOA Dot / 32 MOA Circle Lens Type: Asphere Illumination Settings: 15 ( 12 Day / 3NV) Overall Length: 1.84 inches Overall Width: .94 inches Overall Height: 1.23 inch Mounting Footprint: DeltaPoint™ Pro Weight (w/o battery): 1.15 ounces MSRP: $589.99 Explore RECOILweb:RECOILtv: DAWSON KNIVES are Truly Made in the USA.New Holographic Red Dot: Vortex UH-1Caribe RoadLC9 and LC380 Green Lasers (with holster) now available from Viridian NEXT STEP: Download Your Free Target Pack from RECOILFor years, RECOIL magazine has treated its readers to a full-size (sometimes full color!) shooting target tucked into each big issue.
