Today I mount the Romeo5 dot sight on the Sig Virtus and shoot it for accuracy again. This will be a test of both the sight and the rifle in operation.

Sig Virtus with Romeo5
I mounted the Romeo5 midway up the Picatinny rail, where both the dot and the target are easily visible.

Sighting in the Romeo5

I started at 12 feet as I always do with optical sights. The first shot went low and left so I adjusted the Romeo5 adjustments up and right. After 4 shots and adjustments in between I felt confident to move back to 10 meters.

I will say this, the sight adjustments worked perfectly, and like most dot sights the Romeo5 adjusts quickly. I sighted in with the dot on full intensity, but dropped four levels of illumination when shooting the targets. That 2 MOA dot is extremely precise, and you want it just bright enough to see with no flare! read more
