Since 2019, SIG has been working diligently behind the scenes on developing a new pistol red dot sight for the SIG M17 and M18 platforms. After years of research and development by its engineers it is ready to release the ROMEO2 RDS to the market. What makes the ROMEO2 unique is its removable shroud that completely enclosed the emitter and internals from the elements. While also adding protection against bumps and drops as well. On Wednesday of last week, SIG proudly announced the release of the Romeo2 RDS.

Below, is the press release from SIG SAUER on the new ROMEO2 RDS.


Press Releases

Hi NEWINGTON, N.H., (February 16, 2022) – SIG SAUER Electro-Optics is pleased to announce the ROMEO2 Red Dot sight is now shipping – a mil-spec reflex sight, built for maximum durability and tested to withstand the extreme environments of every mission.

The ROMEO2 is a Red Dot Reflex Sight that features a molded glass aspheric lens with high-performance coatings for superior light transmittance and zero distortion, a selectable circle dot reticle available in 3 MOA, 6MOA, or 10MOA, and offers D.A.R.C. (Dark Adaptive Reticles and Coatings) technology to provide ideal reticle brightness and target clarity while using a Gen3+ night vision device, MOTAC™ (motion-activated illumination system) and MAGNETAC™ (magnetic activation) that automatically turns the optic off when holstered and on when drawn. The sight has a 7075-aluminum housing and comes with two (2) steel shrouds for three (3) different optic configurations, to include fully enclosed and sealed. The ROMEO2 will fit all SIG pistol slides with the PRO slide cut and many other slides cut to accept the DPP. A spring-loaded side battery tray with push-button release allows a battery change without the need to remove the optic from the firearm. The ROMOE2 was designed, developed, tested, and assembled in the U.S.A.
