01. On the ROMEO1, the battery life is not as good as I’d like, and at five flashes, it was at its brightest setting. For me, that wasn’t bright enough.
02. In December, however, there will be a new sight, the ROMEO1T, and it will have a brighter setting, as well as 20,000-hour battery life and an aluminum housing. It will be exactly the same size as ROMEO1. This is a really good step in the right direction. The shroud is also new. Bang it around all day and it’s totally fine. The co-witness is at the bottom of the sights/irons.
03. ROMEO1 can be run on a bunch of different guns. It is a good optic on a 45-degree angle for competition, and it allows you to transition from a big magnifier to your red dot.
04. I took a night vision course in Exeter, New Hampshire, and used the ROMEO1. The bottom two settings are night vision. Turn them all the way down, then once up. There are at least 7 settings of brightness on the ROMEO1, and ROMEO1T has 10 settings.
05. I did a bunch of testing regarding zero hold (4 guns x 5,000 rounds of .45 ACP each—no zero shift). Our zero hold was better than every single one of them.
06. ROMEO1T will be shipping in volume by the 2019 SHOT Show.
