Review Of The Sig Sauer Romeo 5 Red Dot Optic
Red dot optics have become the standard for AR-15 and M4 variant rifles and the Sig Sauer Romeo 5 is a new optic that is a great choice for its performance, features and value! The Sig Sauer Romeo 5 is very similar to the Aimpoint Micro in size and features but comes in a less than half of the price! You can find this optic at OpticsPlanet at the links below.

Overall Impressions of the Sig Sauer Romeo 5 Red Dot Optic
I like it. I think this is a very good value for the features that the optic has right out of the box. I like that it comes standard with the 1.4 inch riser to be used on a flattop AR rifle. I also really like the battery life of 40,000+ hours! The MOTAC motion sensor technology seems to work very well and is very sensitive. The Red dot itself is plenty bright even in very bright sunlight. The dot is also crisp and easy to shoot back at distances of 100+ yards.
The only thing I did not get to do on my test that I would like to do is to test how well it holds zero. It seemed to be doing fine on the day of testing but once the wind picked up to 30+ mph I was not able to confirm zero with 100% certainty. Though I believe it probably did fine. That being said if there was a problem with it holding zero I am sure that Sig’s infinite warranty would cover that and they would replace it with one that did hold zero. Again for the price this seems like it could be an Aimpoint Micro killer!
