SIG Romeo2: The 3MOA Reflex Red Dot Is Now Ready (No Really)

They say good things come to those who wait. You’ll have to decide whether the SIG Sauer Romeo2 fits into the good portion of that aphorism, dear reader, but it definitely falls into the wait part. Regardless, the Romeo2 Reflex Sight, a 30mm red dot with “layer-able” protective shroud, has begun reaching consumers. 

No, really. I would lie to you but not about that. 

The SIG Romeo2 can be converted to a closed emitter arrangement with its modular shroud system.

From the shipping announcement: “SIG SAUER is proud to announce the long awaited ROMEO2 red dot optic is now shipping! The ROMEO2 has been designed and built for the most rugged and adverse conditions featuring a modular shroud system to provide multiple layers of protection. The ROMEO2 is available in a 3 MOA or 6 MOA red dot with 15 brightness settings to ensure rapid target engagement. The sight features a high-efficiency, point source LED emitter and molded aspheric glass lens, utilizing a high-performance red notch reflector coating for excellent brightness and light transmittance with zero distortion. The 7075 aluminum housing and ruggedized steel shrouds protect the ROMEO2 from extreme impacts and drops. The ROMEO2 maintains 25,000 hours of battery life, comes with MOTAC to automatically power the optic on and off, and is compatible with all SIG pistols with a PRO or R2 footprint.

Don’t wanna read? Watch the video. 

The Romeo2, which has been at least three years coming, is a true 1x magnification reflex sight with a 3MOA red dot reticle and 12 brightness settings. It ships with removable and interchangeable hoods so you can layer on whatever level of protection you prefer, even to the point of making it waterproof.

As is increasingly seen on quality pistol optics, the Romeo2 features a side-loading battery tray. This of course allows you to replace the battery without removing the optic and losing zero and.

Happily for those who aren’t interested in switching out rear sights, the Romeo2 has an integrated rear sight that sits at approximately the same level of SIG’s suppressor-height sights. This has the added advantage of allowing someone to mount the optic further back on the gun.
