    My wife has a few Romeo 1 Pro optics, and they seem much improved, and much more durable.
    We'll see how mine comes out. Mine has held its zero nicely in the 16 months I've had it. Our LE rep got me a steel shroud to enhance physical durability, which is a nice addition-as I recall, that now comes standard with the Romeo 1 Pro. Some other friends who had earlier versions of the Romeo 1 had issues with the battery compartment lid coming loose under recoil and breaking connectivity; they were using theirs heavily in USPSA, so their rond counts were probably pretty significant.

    The plastic screwdriver that comes with the Romeo1 only provides about 2/3rds the required torque needed for the battery cap for complete reliability before that blade will give out. You need to torque it to 8-10 lb-in, with a proper screwdriver (perhaps with a bit of tape on it to protect the delicate finish) and torque wrench.

    Unfortunately the plastic tool is required (the tiny steel screwdriver end) for any sight adjustment unless you have a fine-blade 2mm jeweler’s screwdriver in your range kit.

    Paint witness marks on the cap after the first time so you can repeat the setting without a wrench afterward.

    Unfortunately this torque setting will also pretty much lock the battery into the cap, which you’ll discover on your next change, which can be resolved with a jeweler’s screwdriver, sharp needle nose pliers, or just throwing the silly thing onto a hard surface.

    As for the question of re-milling an RX to accept something else, yes it’s doable. Two new threaded mounting holes and a bit of trimming the leading edge of the cutout allows use of an RMR/SRO (and for an RMR you’ll need a sealing plate). But you don’t get proper recoil lugs unless you have the leading edge cut to precisely engage the optic body, as it tends to do with the Romeo1.

    SIG's Customer Support has been great-they immediately issued me with an RMA and a shipping label, and subsequently are providing me with an interim slide cover. Whille actually acessing a human being can take some extensive wait time on hold, the results when they pick up are exceptionally amicable and helpful. Now if the product involved can provide sustainable performance on its return (or replacement)...

    C&H Precision Weapons re-cut my RX slide to accommodate the Romero 1 Pro. They can also cut it for the RMR.

    I have toyed with idea of trimming a DPP for the pocket but not sure I want to mess with #6 screws that are smaller than the DPP holes (stock screws for DPP have a nice non-threaded body).

    Welp, Sig sent me back my Romeo 1 untouched... saying they couldn't find the cracked lens.

    Which isn't surprising since the 3Max was the one with the cracked lens...

    Customer service was very nice and helpful like they always are.

    So sending back the Romeo 1 and waiting on the 3Max backordered.

    Well, that was fast. SIG replaced my problematic 2019 production Romeo 1 with a Version 5.0. I've remounted it with the steel shroud, and a using a dab of paint on the battery cover cap and housing to ascertain if there's any battery cover loosening in the future. I should have a chance to re-zero in the next day or so.

    SIG is also sending me the slide cover plate to fill the gap in the slide if the RDS is removed and I revert to solely the what were the BUIS tritium sights; I'll keep that hopefully in reserve. Despite my qualms with the P320 and SIG QC, I really like the ergos and accuracy of it. And mine is concurrently serving as a test-bed for Check-Mate's 17 round full-size magazines that they manufacture as OEM equipment for SIG.

    SIG provided me with an Energizer button battery; I'll monitor and replace pro-actively at the six month point, and replace with a Duracell.

    The platform will be used during our upcoming June State IDPA Tier IV sanctioned Championship match in the CO division; I'm ambivelant if I'll return it to use as a duty/EDC gun; maybe after some significant vetting.

    You owe us some dollars and doughnuts-mine came in a in a box first wrapped in a plastic bag, then cradled in a foam shell surround, and the box was packed in another padded box.

    Very good. Do you prefer your coffee black?
