FAST FACTS

Tactical World - - Special Section -

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.
