    Ok, thanks for that. Doesn't seem to answer my question.

    Fair enough.

    https://www.sigsauer.com/store/romeo-zero-1x18mm.html Says the Romeo Zero fits the Shield RMS-c and J-point footprint.

    So it appears it does fit

    This could be a worthy little bugger. So far Iím liking the j-point on my milled G19 and was planning to go rms-c at some future point. Having more options is good.

    I was hoping for a closed emitter. This looks like a nice upgrade tho.
    Not sure how I feel about this. That battery tray better be bulletproof. If the Holosuns last half as long as they claim to they will be obsolete by the time you need to change the battery, so how often will anyone use this feature? The side buttons do look like a nice upgrade, though my fingers have managed to get used to the little buttons on my 507C.

    A side loading tray definitely makes sense for minidots that can't take a 2032 battery.

    I am 90% sure the closed emitter optic uses an ACRO style mount. If it is just another pic-mounted Holosun like their slew of Micro clones the high MSRP makes no sense.

    I see these two are often quoted when discussing Holosun.

    Can anyone no shit say those guys aren't getting some sort of compensation from Holosun?

    Ive unfortunately become extremely cynical. I put 100x more weight on @GJM 's thoughts on RDSs than I do on trainers with large Instagram followers. They rarely if ever disclose when they are getting compensated for pushing a product.

    Nothing personal about Fisher and Cowan. And maybe they didn't get a bunch of free stuff from Holosun. I don't know. I'm asking.

    My personal experience is "out of the box" I've had a higher Trijicon and Aimpoint failure rate than Holosun and neither has failed on me if they are still working after 2 or 3 range sessions.
    MRDS's are still novelties to me at this point though so my round count isn't up there with someone like George (although I am probably more of a wrecking ball off the range than he is).
    Lot of desert out here.
    Lot of holes in the desert.
    Lot of problems buried in those holes.

    Holosun is straight up murdering the competition in terms of innovating and listening to what people want.

    Pretty sure Steve Fisher consults for Holosun.

    Neither of them seems to have any sort of brand loyalty to Holosun. They run and recommend Trijicon and Aimpoint pistol mounted optics too.

    So there's that.
