SIG RomeoZERO Elite ($220)

There’s little question SIG Sauer has jumped into the red dot game with both feet, offering not only optic compatible pistols, their own red dot sights, but factory optic equipped pistols. No other manufacturer can currently make that claim. And, we predict it will be a while until one does, and when they do, they’ll have to try and match SIG’s level of quality, innovation, and compatibility — they’ve set the standard — and it’s a high one.

SIG’s P365 is the king of the micro compacts, and the company’s micro red dot sight, the RomeoZero, is the ideal sight to bring that pistol to the next level. The combination has been an extreme success for SIG, so much so they recently updated the RomeZero to the RomeoZero Elite. The new Elite sight offers functional updates that include a scratch-resistant aspherical lens, proprietary carbon-infused polymer housing with reinforced lens area provides users with an even greater level of drop resistance. The Elite model also features a new circle-dot reticle, while TAP (Touch Activated Programming) gives the user the ability to change reticle pattern and intensity with a simple tap on the optic. A structurally enhanced steel shroud also ships with the sight, should you desire an extra level of protection, should your pistols use extend beyond inside the waistband carry.
