SIG SAUER Romeo1PRO
The first thing you’ll likely notice about the SIG SAUER Romeo1PRO Red Dot Sight is the window size. Using a combination of straight sides and a rounded top surface, you have a large sight picture window. The lens is treated with scratch-resistant material to provide years of red dot clarity, even when your optic is exposed to the hard knocks and dings of daily carry.
The Romeo1PRO also runs 75 percent of forever on a fresh battery because it uses motion sensing technology to turn the dot on and off. When sitting in the safe or other stationary location, the red dot powers down. The instant the gun moves, it turns back on. As far as you’re concerned, it’s always on. In the six months I’ve been testing one on a SIG SAUER P320 XCompact, I’ve not yet caught the red dot sleeping when it should be awake.
The optic uses a single CR1632 battery for its power source. When times comes to swap it out, you’ll be happy the battery compartment is accessible from the top so you don’t have to remove and re-zero your red dot.
The Romeo1PRO is available in three varieties at this time: black with 3 MOA dot, black with 6 MOA dot and flat dark earth with 6 MOA dot.
Even though it has the motion sensing feature, you can manually choose brightness levels from 10 daytime modes and two night vision compatible modes.
One more thing. Depending on your pistol, you may benefit from the rear “iron sight” notch cut into the back edge of the Romeo1PRO. When mounted on the P320 XCompact, for example, the optic takes the place of the rear iron sight but gives you a co-witnessed backup sight option. The rear notch and front post are visible in the bottom of the red dot lens. If the electronics fail or become damaged, you still have a viable manual sighting option.
