ROMEO5 Comparison Video:

Sig's ROMEO5 red dot sight is a small, lightweight enclosed red dot sight. The Romeo5 features Sig's MOTAC system (motion activated illumination) which turns the sight off when it is not in use. It activates instantly when it detects the slightest vibration or movement. The feature helps drastically extend the battery life of the sight.

The ROMEO5 includes a total of two risers, one is a low mount riser and one is a 1.41 inch riser (pre-mounted on the Romeo5 in the box) to co-witness with iron sights.

The ROMEO5 will mount on any platform and the solid aluminum design will give peak performance and years of service. Military units trust the ROMEO5 when it counts, so why wouldn’t you?

The ROMEO5 Compact Red Dot Sight provides the civilian and armed professional with a robust 1x aiming solution optimized for today’s MSR/AR platforms.

  • The ROMEO5 combines a leading edge optical design with an extremely robust, lightweight aluminum housing for years of worry-free service at a competitive price point
  • The 2 MOA Red-Dot provides 10 illumination settings (8 daylight plus 2 NV) for visibility in all light conditions
  • Features our MOTAC™ (Motion Activated Illumination) powers up when it senses motion and powers down when it does not. Provides for optimum operational safety and enhanced battery life
  • The readily available CR2032 battery is side-loading, allowing for quick battery replacement without having to remove the sight from the firearm
  • An integrated M1913 Picatinny interface provides industry-standard mounting options for a wide range of applications
  • Dependable waterproof (IPX-7 rated for complete water immersion up to 1 meter) and fog-proof performance
  • Includes a M1913 Picatinny low mount riser and a co-witness 1.41” riser mount

We have received a few inquiries from customers regarding the Romeo5 and there are a couple things to check if you buy a new Romeo5 and it does not appear to be working:

  • First, make sure the battery is installed correctly with the + facing away from the scope (the + side should be visible when the battery is installed)
  • Next, press and hold the + or - button for about two seconds to activate the sight and then press the + button about six to eight times to ensure the dot is visible (sometimes it is set so low it doesn't appear to be visible but is indeed on).
  • MOTAC is the motion activation feature of the Romeo5 and is very sensitive. The most minor vibration will activate it. We tested it and found that the vibration from a speaker on a desk while the optic is sitting on the desk is enough to activate it.
  • The Romeo5 uses a CR2032 battery that should last a long time. If you are burning through batteries quickly, make sure something isn't vibrating or touching the optic to frequently cause it to activate (for example if it is in a vehicle, it will always activate from the vibration of the engine and driving).

Product seems to perform well, have it mounted on a AR9 with a 8” barrel. Only issue was the battery supplied was dead! Not so much a big deal as it was an inconvenience. Oh well, maybe they’ll see this review and remedy. Will update if they do. Cheers Review by djtanta (Posted on 7/21/2020)

Overall this is a great value when it goes on sale ( $130 including shipping from OCG ). This is on sale super often so you've got no excuse to be buying this at none sale prices unless you're in a time pinch.

The SOR52000 can be found for about $10-15 dollars cheaper. The SOR52000 only comes with the high mount but is otherwise the same as the SOR52001. I wanted the ability to swap this between a few guns so I went with the SOR52001 which comes with low and high mounts. If your going to put this on an AR and just leave it your fine with buying SOR52000 and saving $10-15.

The combination of the Sig warranty, motion activation ( MOTAC ), battery life, and overall cost ( price w/ shipping ) swayed me to buy this over the other $100-200 red dot competition. I considered buying the AAA version of this red dot but assuming the advertised battery life is remotely close to 40,000 hours, keeping a pack of the CR2032 around was worth the tradeoff.

Shipping and processing was super quick from OCG. I got the red dot three days before it was estimated to arrive and allowed me to bring it out for a range day that I assumed I'd not have it for. First purchase from OCG and would again.

I got it on sale. For the price you can't beat it. It actually used to be cheaper but the demand went up, due to the value you're getting I'd assume, and so did the price.

The MOTAC is awesome. I don't have to worry about turning the sight off because it'll turn itself off after 2 minutes (tested and confirmed) without movement. You also can't "outrun" the sight. The MOTAC is pretty sensitive, so no matter how fast you pick it up and aim it, the dot will be there.

This is my first red dot sight, and I've actually learned I have a slight astigmatism (or something) that is really only noticeable when using a sight like this. When it arrived I thought it was defective because the "dot" was more like a blurry and oddly shaped grouping of topographical lines. Pointed my phone camera through it and it was a near perfect dot. Did some research and did the "rotation" test and sure enough, it's just my eyes.

I love that you can manually turn the sight off while your in a vehicle bouncing around or keep it in standby mode and have it turn on as soon as its moved. You cant get a better sight for the money. In my opinion. Review by Richard (Posted on 7/5/2020)

This is my 2nd Romeo5 from Osage County Guns. Comparing the Romeo5 to other red dots, I realized that you can't beat it for the price, not because is cheap, because is not, but you get the best for the price. Clear glass, good dot and quality construction with a reputable name and warranty.
You also get the best price only and fast shipping.

Best price I could find anywhere for this romeo5.....at least since the Corona virus start up. Everyone else is jacking up their prices and I appreciate Osage County Guns keeping the price fair and reasonable. Product is amazing. I paired it with a PSA 16" free float freedom upper and lower and it looks and works amazing. I like the auto turn on but the fact you can still manually turn it off and on is a huge plus for me. Shipping was fast even with everything going on with the epidemic. First time buying from here but certainly won't be my last. Great job to OCG!!! Review by Eddie (Posted on 6/28/2020)

Product Questions

Product Questions

How does MOTAC work? My Romeo5 doesn't seem to turn off like it should.

The Romeo5 and other Sig Electro Optics that have MOTAC (Motion Activated Illumination) are very sensitive to any motion or even vibration.

From Sig Sauer: MOTAC increases battery life by shutting down the system when not in use and instantly activates the system when it senses the slightest vibration or movement. Your sight will be up when you go into action. The ROMEO5 will mount on any platform and the solid aluminum design will give peak performance and years of service.

We have sold thousands of Romeo5 optics and have never seen one that had a defective MOTAC feature. To test the MOTAC feature, turn on the optic and place the optic on a solid surface that has no vibration (a table top, desk, or chair) in a manner in which you can look through and see the dot without having to move or touch the optic. Ensure that there is nothing which might create a vibration and let the optic sit for approximately one minute. The reticle should turn off. You can look through the optic and see that the Romeo5 shuts itself off. If you tap or even slightly move the optic, it will turn back on.

Very slight vibrations, even those from an incandescent light (a customer tested his on the shelf of his safe and an incandescent light was mounted on the underside of the shelf) can prevent the sight from shutting itself off.

I just received my Romeo5 and it doesn't seem to work. What should I do?

Referenced product: SOR52001

There are a few steps to troubleshoot the Romeo5 to verify if it is functioning properly.

First, please check to ensure the battery is installed properly. The positive terminal should face away from the optic as shown:

Sig Romeo5 Battery Installation

Next, press and hold the + button on the top of the Romeo5 for approximately three seconds to activate it. It is possible that the intensity is turned down very low where the dot is difficult to see. Press the + button five to ten times to check if the dot becomes visible.

Last, if these steps do not work, it is recommended to test another battery, if you have one available. The Romeo5 uses a CR2032.

If you still have problems after trying the steps above, we recommend calling Sig Sauer's support staff by calling 603-610-3000 (option 1).

will riding in rouge pastures attivate the motac

Referenced product: SOR52001

Response Date: Feb 26, 2019

Yes. Even very minor motion (tapping the sight lightly) will activate MOTAC. It is meant to turn off when the firearm is set down and activate with any slight movement.
