SIG Sauer ROMEO 4M: Red Dot for FBI

The red dot ROMEO 4M was offered, in cooperation with TidewaterTactical, to the FBI which chose it as the new optics for their patrol carabines. 

The ROMEO 4M spots a lightweight but robust metal casing. The sight picture can be switched between a 2 MOA red dot and the red dot with an additional 65 MOA surrounding ring for rapid target acquisition.

The ROMEO M4 has thus far not just been ordered by the FBI. Several police departments, for example the New Hampshire State Police and the Fort Collins Police Department in Colorado have chosen the SIG Sauer Romeo 4 red dot as standard optic for their service rifles. 

The respectable Romeo series consists of several models and variants. Here a side-by-side comparison of the Romeo 3, Romeo 4(S), Romeo 5, and Romeo 7. 

In addition to the extensive ROMEO red dot sights, another product presented at the SHOT Show 2017 was the ECHO1 thermal reflex sight.

Based on the newest generation of thermal imaging sensors, the digital sight provides for day or night time predator and hog hunting, while functioning similar to a conventional reflex sight using both eyes open for fast and intuitive target acquisition with greatly improved situational awareness. The sight is also perfect for home defense, law enforcement, military, and search and rescue situations.
