It used to be that seeing a red dot sight on the firing line in a handgun class was the exception rather than the rule. But those days have passed. Today, it’s extremely common for gun owners to put red dots on their carry and range guns. Red dots aren’t just for hunters or competition shooters anymore. Many gun makers are delving into the red dot market, including Sig Sauer, a respected firearms manufacturer whose years of experience go into designing quality optics. Their latest is the Sig Sauer RomeoZero Pro.
Sig Sauer made the following statement regarding the RomeoZero Pro:
This new full-size reflex optic features a large 30mm aspherical lens made of scratch-resistant glass, offering unmatched clarity and a distortion-free sight picture when compared to competitors. The ROMEOZero-PRO features a proprietary carbon-infused polymer housing with a reinforced lens protection area making it incredibly durable while delivering significant drop and impact protection. It also comes with a hardened steel protective shroud for even greater protection and durability. The ROMEOZero-PRO is available with either a 10 MOA red dot or the versatile new circle/dot reticle. The new T.A.P. (Touch-Activated Programming) technology gives the user the ability to change brightness with just a tap on the optic. All rear surfaces of the housing have anti-reflection grooves molded in, including the backup rear sight notch which is marked with Grade A Swiss SuperLuminova pigment for visibility in dark environments. And just like our smaller ROMEOZero and ROMEOZero-ELITE models, the new ROMEOZero-PRO is fully assembled in the U.S.A. in our state-of-art facility in Oregon.
The RomeoZero Pro from Sig Sauer is designed to be rugged and resistant to the bumps and scrapes that come standard with serious training. It has an overall length of 1.83 inches, a height of 1.09 inches, and a weight of 0.5 ounces. Features include eight daytime settings, 1 MOA adjustment increments, and Sig’s 5-year warranty. The optic runs on one CR1632 battery. According to the manufacturer, runtime on a single battery can be as great as 20,000 hours.
