Sig Sauer has just announced the ROMEO-X optic series, featuring two sizes of pistol red dots.
Sig Sauer recently showed off the Romeo-M17, the red dot developed for the Army’s new Sig M17 pistols. However, that exact model is not available to civilians. For non-military shooters who were interested in its design, Sig has just announced a new optic series inspired by it called the ROMEO-X. The new line of pistol red dots is commercially available and offered in two different sizes.
The two versions are called the ROMEO-X Compact and the Romeo-X Pro, the former being for smaller handguns like the Sig P365 while the latter is intended for full-size pistols such as the Sig P320. The Compact model used a Shield RMSc mounting footprint and the Pro model uses a DeltaPoint Pro footprint. Besides their sizes and mounting footprints, the two ROMEO-X red dots mostly share the same features. Those include 7075 aluminum housings, side-mounted CR1632 battery compartments and distortion-free aspheric glass.
Other commonalities are the optics’ advertised continuous runtime of 20,000 hours (at a medium brightness setting), 15 brightness settings (12 for daytime, 3 for night vision) and red 2-MOA dot/32-MOA circle reticles. The red dots also have motion activation technology, magnetic activation technology and are capable of co-witnessing standard-height iron sights.
Andy York, President of SIG SAUER Electro-Optics, said this about the new red dots:
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 … 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.
MSRP for the Sig ROMEO-X Compact is $519.99 and MSRP for the ROMEO-X Pro is $589.99.
