    I think you will really like the Romeo5.

    Thanks for using the link. Was really just trying to pass on some savings to others. I just learned of Active Junky the beginning of the month and have been buying quite a bit of ammo from Brownells since.

    Brownells usually has a coupon code that equates to 10% off and free shipping plus then the cash back from active junky. I just got a case of Blazer 9mm for $161 shipped to my door and a case of CCI std vel 22lr for $18.12 per brick.

    Again, anyone can use the link and get 10 bucks back from their first order over $25. Here's the link again.

    I can't stand narrow tube sights after having an EoTech and now a Holosun 510C. Not to mention not having a ring/dot reticle. All depends on the use case though. The Romeo 5 was on my short list though.

    There is a guy on YouTube who put his Romeo5 through a gauntlet of tests including shooting it with a 12 gauge shotgun.

    He is still using it.

    It is as tough as any red dot out there.

    I've had a ROMEO 5 on a SAINT for a few months now. It hasn't been heavily used, so long-term durability is still unknown, but I like the sight and would by it again.

    I can't get mine to stay tight on the rail of my Ruger PC Carbine. I can't tighten it hard enough to keep it from shaking loose. I gave up.

    I got it in today. No problems mounting it on the flat top upper. I zeroed it at 15 meters since it is on a pistol caliber AR that will be sitting by the bed. I love it. Couldnt be happier. Thanks for info guys.

    I have the older 4 issued so far it's been good. That said there are two issues from use so far. the covers break off easily so don't rely on them . The second is the mounting screw in the mount is cast and does break and leaves shiny dot on the floor. Go to lowes or store of your choice and get a steel screw and paint black etc and should be set.

    Active junky link is not working, but I get free shipping from Brownells and the unit is $109.00 so I’m pulling that lever now.

    If you've not ordered yet...
    Here's the invite link again.
    https://www.activejunky.com/invite/1700433

    Sign up for active junky then navigate to Brownells from AJ page. Brownells is 4% and PSA is still 6%. And we both get $10.

    I actually just ordered another one from Brownells last week too. 109 free ship and 4.39 back from AJ
