    I went looking locally for a Holosun green dot. Chinese made, and very good quality. I’ve almost exclusively used them when I build an 80% AR. They were sold out, if any local dealers ever sold them at all. There were other brands, in that price range. The Sig Romeo5 seemed the most closely matched. I decided to give it a try. I’ve been happy with it so far. Scuttlebut has it that they are made in the same Chinese factory as the Holosun. I’d buy either again in that price range. Moving up, I think I’d like the Trijicon MRO. But there’s a host of options out there and more every day. American, Chinese, Japan, Taiwan. I like ti use what works and what’s not overblown hype, with a fancy name I’m probably going to obliterate, obscure, or subdue anyway. I’m big on debadging.

    I ordered the Sig https Sierra 6 bdx-5-30×56-mm back in early July and has not even shipped yet?? I ordered it from Scheels and they keep checking with Sig and they have pushed back the date now three different times’.

    I really hope someone from Sig is reading this review.

    Why release something to the market for sale and have no supply on hand. Really dumb business move!!

    I’ve been a Sig owner since 1983 and I am a new resident of Wilsonville. I know the city is proud of Sig’s presence. Keep up the great work.

    I noticed one of the comments about your optics being made in USA. Are they now made here? Lest SIG scope I bought was Israeli parts assembled in China. I never mounted it, I think I gave it away.

    That is awesome made in the USA all company’s should be doing the same thing what’s 100$ on a 1800$ scope to have it made in the USA

    • James November 23, 2020, 8:32 am

      That $100 in cost is $150 minimum increase in distributor price which is a $200 increase in dealer cost and $300 extra to you. Companies don’t just lose $100 and call it good. They also don’t make $1800 on their $1800 scope when you buy it from some 3rd party.
