NRAAM 18 – SIG Optics ROMEO8T

The ROMEO8T was designed to answer a military solicitation. This 1x red dot optic offers a 34mm Viewing window with a 2MOA aiming dot which has four user selectable reticle options.

It has 10 daytime and 2 night vision brightness settings. Adjustments are .5 MOA with total travel from optical centerline of up to 60 MOA. Additionally, they report the ability to retain zero despite temperature shifts, although they haven’t offered us details of those temperature ranges yet.

The ROMEO8T weighs 13.87 oz (388 g) and is IPX8 Waterproof Rating (20m for 2 hours). A CR123a Battery provides 50,000+ hours of battery life on visible setting.

There are two variants (Hunting and Tactical), but both feature a 7075-T6 aluminum housing. The Tactical model also incorporates the steel reinforcement chassis seen in these photos as well as flip caps for sand/debris protection.

    A Vortex UH-1 without the Vortex warranty. Pass.

    Why when you can buy an Aimpoint? Ounces equal pounds, pounds equal pain, this is close to a pound of pain…The only way they make money off this one is to give a retirement job to a government purchasing agent.

    You mean a UH-1 with nightvision settings? That’s not so bad.

  5. Robert W Hunter says:

    The battery life makes it a huge winner!

    This thing is uglier than sin.

    +1 vote for very ugly. Looks like something the space marines in Aliens might carry.

    Also, damn near 14oz. For comparison MRO is 4 oz. (with out mount, but even if mount was 2 oz…) We are talking about an almost 1 pound red dot.
