  1. For competition use I'm not sure what can be done. Extra protective hoods are always going to obstruct your view. I like the idea of them being optional or removable as with the 510c and Romeo 1, so people who want the least obstructed sight picture can have it. Durability of the electronics is still in most need of improvement though. While some appear anecdotally more likely to last than others, no red dot seems immune from inexplicably biting the dust even after very low round counts.
  2. now can sig actually follow through and have the dang thing available, with relevant accessories (mounts and plates) by the end of this year?
  3. I believe that's just a romeo 1 with the shroud kit. Not the new R3.
  4. Crisp dot, bright enough to not wash out against fresh painted steel on the sunniest of days? Low profile box but huge window? (ie not a slideride) Batteries last a whole match? Units that dont inexplicably stop working after low round counts? It doesnt even need the fancy auto off and shake awake since we arent asking for a ccw optic, just the most awesome possible competition optic. can you at least hint as to how long we might wait?
  5. No. Nothing about it at shotshow either. At shot they let people see the romeo 2 and mentioned a romeo1 pro. neither appears to meet the criteria of the long rumored max michel edition R3. I’ve been wanting to get a red dot but im hesitant right now since all the current ‘top of the line’ dots are at least a couple years old.
  6. I am interested in these for steel matches but no one seems to have the rail mount adaptor in stock, item SOR1MK013. It is available bundled with the 3moa romeo 1 Any ideas other than buying the 3 moa kit and trying to sell off the optic?
  7. Thank you sir! It seems like kind of a large sight for such a gun (.22) but people run c-mores on these things all the time. I'm thinking the circle-dot reticle will be excellent for short range steel shooting. For all but the smallest plates you just roughly center the plate in the circle and pull the trigger. The really tiny plates (2x4 in) on the other hand, won't be obscured like they would by an 8 or 12 moa cmore.
  8. Does running it without the shell save much weight or just block less of your vision? Thinking about trying one on a volquartsen scorpion for steel matches.
  9. So basically I just won open 10 minor division for the match ?
  10. Sorry I see now it was a dumb question but being a casual and relatively new participant to sanctioned matches this was exactly the reason I was asking this question. No one bats and eye at people using a striker gun with no thumb safety and a 2 lb trigger. Thanks for setting me strait guys
  11. I've been shooting limited with an SAO handgun but have a DA/SA with decocker on the way. If I wanted to shoot the new gun in limited until I assemble a rig/magazines for production can I start hammer up even though it doesn't have a manual safety? Thanks
  12. Cone stage was very fun although I wish I had just rolled the dice on a long distance toss instead of shooting one handed half the stage. I need to quit being so conservative and take some risks! Glad you got to shoot a little before the DQ ?
  13. Hey I was there but I don’t think I was in your squad. Which stage got you? The cone stage or the one with the pair of 20 yard paper shots across the width of the bay?
  14. A big cone. You’re either shooting one handed for over half the shots in the stage or toss it and hope to get lucky (unlikely) or run backwards to get it at the end. The RO and shooter were related and some of us felt like it might have gone differently for one of us to do the same thing.
  15. Thanks Skipping the item may have been wise. I’ll keep an eye on such wording in the future but it may have said last shot fired not target engaged, making it one procedural which they were given. Accuracy and speed were obviously much easier without having to deal with it.
