New SIG Optic, Romeo3Max (Michel)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

@lacivilian not to mention that on an Open or PCC where you don’t have to reciprocate that big optic... the 510 has other advantages besides it’s giant glass.

 

Great battery life. ( I leave it turned on all day for matches then change the battery once a year.)

 

It’s pretty damn durable.

 

.... and it’s CHEAP!

This optic was a let down for open shooters imo. Looks like a great option for CO guys. The marketing strategy of offering a 30mm window sounded appealing until released that it is only wider not taller. I'll stick with the Holosun 510c until someone makes something better than it.

I agree.  Funny how it is described as a 30mm window to only find out it is the width.

Yes it is honestly incredible. I have seen multiple go for sub $200 recently. If you are running anything else in open or pcc you are only hurting yourself. Sure it looks monstrous but once you use it you'll find it to be the best dot out there regardless of price.

Yep. Max pulled a fast one on us. I could care less how wide the optic is as long as it is reasonable. I want height for dot tracking during recoil.

Not sure where some of you saw the price at $720, but they did announce a final MSRP of $599. Maybe $720 CAD?

Anyway, way too overpriced, if you ask me. I’ve been wanting one of those HS510Cs again since I used to have one on my AR, but nobody makes a mount for my Czechmate..

I swear I saw it at $599 somewhere, but of course I can’t find it now. Oh well, $720 is even worse and definitely out of the acceptable price range for something like that.

The street price will prob be $500-$550 matching the SRO.

Ira Kay got it right 26 years ago 30mm round lens pick your dot size.

We can land on Jupiter but can't build a durable MRDS with slideride-sized glass and RTS2-sized footprint

Why hasn't c-more taken their slideride and made it half that size, it looks doable … they could make a killing on sales at the same price. No state side R&D I guess.

They could cut the entire back of it past the dot module off and put modern electronics in it probably increase the battery life by 100x... But that would require new injection molds and design work that would have to be paid for in cost savings or increased price.  Betting they have decided its not worth it.

This is the first I've heard of the XL.  Looks like it's 1x35.  Can only find one picture and it's from the side.

The hood looks to be shaped a little different and probably just a little wider than the R3Max

You can go to Optics Planet and read all about both sights. They list the R3Max and the R3XL both at 629.99.

I will stick with the long battery life, super crisp 3 min dot, fine field of view RE3 for the time being.

Like it so much I just bought another. Now, what to put it on...

(Cue Jeopardy music)

I found it by searching "Sig Romeo3 XL". The Optics Planet ad runs on the right side.
