I was looking into that optic with the 365XL.I’ve been going back and forth between the Romeo 0 and Holosun 507c.

Purchased the Romeo 5 for my current AR build.
Yeah those two seem to get a lot of comparisons. I didn't even really look into the Holosun because the Romeo 0 gets great reviews and is about $100 less, plus I like Sig stuff in general.

How do you like the Romeo 5? I was also looking at that vs. spending a little more on an Eotech for one of my AR's.

Good budget optic vs an Eotech or a Aimpoint. Has NVG settings if your a high speed cool guy that has that sort of thing. Haven't had any battery issues since its been on my AR for about 3 years now.

Aimpoint gives special first responder discounts and such

Even with a discount the sig is still significantly cheaper. Is it as quality as a Aimpoint T2? No, absolutely not. The battery life and the construction of the Aimpoint blows the sig out of the water. Dot size is the same, brightness settings I believe are the same.

I don't know about anyone else of here, but I'm not expecting my Romeo 5 to survive an IED blast. I've banged my optic against trees and walls when I'm LARPing throughout the woods and my house and its still held zero. I paid in the upper $200 range, ~$275 for the sig vs $800 for the Aimpoint. To each their own.

Yeah, I'm not buying anything non essential right now. I've got a sig scope on my AR right now. Good enough and still very good.

The PA advanced micro is hands down the best bang for the buck Red dot sight. I think I have approaching 3 years on the battery that's in it with constant on at medium power.

Yeah, I think it's a solid optic. It's definitely not the best, but for what I need it works wells. The price point difference can not be downplayed. They have options of the optic with both high and low mounts for around $200, or just the high mount for $130.

Things might be getting back to normal...ish.


I got a notification from buds online for an in stock rifle over a week ago and never bought it.

Was still in stock today so I bought it.


Also got a notification from midway for some rifle brass yesterday, didn't buy it till today. They sold out shortly after I ordered mine, but it didn't fly off the shelf.
