I don’t really notice the bezel on either. 

So since you have both which is your favorite and why?

I like the Max, but the SRO has proven reliable so far, so i’ll probably use that through nationals.

 

The dot on the Max is way more adjustable, and the thinner bezel is nice. That said, they are fairly equivalent.

So if the max proves to be as reliable does the bigger window and thinner  bezel give  it the edge? Does the sro sit noticeably lower to the bore?

‘if they are equally reliable, I’d use the Max. The SRO is slightly closer to the bore, less than 0.10”

Sig CS just told me that the Romeo3Max not only will not fit my X5, but will not fit any Sig pistol.
As I understand it, Max designed it for his X5, what's the logic behind Sig producing this and not fitting any of their guns?   The CS guy told me I'd have to buy a Springer adapter plate to install it on my gun.

I posted this a few other threads, but for completeness I'll put it here too.  I have a 5 min SRO and a 6 min 3 Max on two otherwise identical Open guns and now around 1500 rounds through the SRO and about 600 on the Max.  I think the Max has a slight edge in that application, but I can swap back and forth instantly with no noticeable change in times on drills, so will probably put the SRO on my CO gun if the Max holds up.

Really interested in the longevity of the SRO and MAX, it's a pretty neat time to be getting into CO and open with all the new mini dots coming out. Hopefully they don't become a crap shoot like the DPP's

Thanks for sharing, beautiful optic🤩. Does r3max have a conspicuous blue tint on lens as well? Is it more blue than sro or less?

Anyone had an idea when this optic is available? Also, if I read this thread correctly, it will not fit an M17, is that right?

Not without an adapter plate. The M17 cut fits the DPP & and Romeo 1 Pro. And the Romeo 1 if you drill out the scope holes a little.

Thanks. Sig sure doesn't make it easy to keep track of what fits where.....

SIG dropped the ball on direct slide mounting. But.. on a Picatinny rail it is an AWESOME sight for Open, PCC, RFRO, RFPO, and anywhere else a Picatinny mount fits. I have one... and have had it on a PCC and RFRO. Love it!

I had a issue this week at a match with sun glare on my SRO. Has anyone experienced that annoying issue?

Thinking about getting a SIG max, could your experience the same thing with it?

I did dialed the brightness down.
