The 5 is built well. The only drawback Iíve seen so far is some flaring that occurred when the sun was low and to my back.

Cuteandfuzzybunnies The Romeo 4 is approved for use by FBI agents.

What most of them mean is it's not "Call of Duty" worthy.

The majority of people are espousing beliefs they really have no data to back up. I'm by no means saying there aren't experienced individuals who make comments based on knowledge and data, but for every one of them there are 100 others who are just repeating what they "heard" on Reddit.
Are sig romeo optics used or approved for use by any LEO agencies ? I think they may be.

For a range toy it doesn't matter. For something you may bet your life on..... I'd consider Aimpoint Pro an excellent budget SHTF red dot. It's a little heavy, but will likely outlive your rifle barrel. They are truly tough. You can find em on ebay for under $300.

This one still works after a fire that destroyed the rifle it's on. I'd still put back up irons on every rifle JIC.

Ok two issues.

Issue one is that I’ve seen some torture videos on primary arms that show some abuse and they survive.

Issue two is that it’s not really a choice between a 400 dollar red dot and a 130 dollar red dot. It’s a choice between 2 or 3 primary arms red dots for the price of one aim point.

The primary arms red dot isn’t likely to break when not in use. And an aim point is no less likely to be lost or stolen.

Is the aim point more reliable ? Sure. But is it 2 or 3 times more reliable ? I don’t know that.

So I put it to you 1 aim point or 3 primary arms for SHTF ?

Bravo32 I have a Romeo 5 on one 16" AR and it works well. With that said, I also have co-witnessed A2/Magpul rear iron sight combo on it as well. I would not just rely on the Romeo 5 in a SHTF situation.

leadcounsel This thread is 2 years old but still relevant.

In late 2019 during holiday sales, I scooped up six Romeo 5 optics for my major fighting rifles in 556, 762x39, and .308. I am very pleased with them and would recommend them.

The shake-awake technology preserves batteries, which are really cheap anyway. But a pack of batteries and set it aside and you'll be set for a decade.

Chili I use the Romeo 5 on my patrol rifle and it has served me well for that last few years.

Rural Buckeye Guy I have them on mine. I just bought a bunch of batteries togethor and keep them seperated in rubber sleeves that I also bought online. They are good to go up to 200 yards, though the dot gets intrusive after 150. The bra id s pain but I have other priorities.

I'm not a super fan of the bra on these. I wish they were symmetrical. I like either a traditional "bungee" caps or flip ups.

Yes, and they are so much more stabile than alkaline batteries. Shelf life is great and they don't leak and destroy your electronics like an alkaline.

daddyusmaximus I have the Romeo 5 on 3 different rifles. (well, on is a "pistol") They have survived and worked well. Even have one on a .44 mag lever gun and it has transformed it into my favorite gun to shoot.

Here is an in-depth review I found on youtube. At just after the 13 minute mark, he even fires a shotgun at it...
