I wanted to do this off the rifle but the Primary Arms sight arrived the morning I went to the range.
So I picked it up on the way.
It was crowded being three days from the start of deer (gun) season & the afternoon of Black Friday.

But here they are for your visual comparison.
The dots are identical for both, crisp & sharp.

I will say the finish on the PA - MD-RB-ADV is that semi-gloss ish black that just doesn't seem to match. I oiled the base in an attempt to get them closer.
They're both on the same brand absolute co-witness T-1 style mount.
Didn't know if anyone was looking at the new MD-RB-AD but I noticed there wasn't many photos of them when I did a Google search.

The PA advanced red dots are a great deal compared to the T1/H1. Never had a Romeo5, but have several of the older PA red dots and three of the advanced red dots. I don't know if 50k hours of battery life is accurate but I can confirm over a year of it being on before a battery swap.

I had an older PA micro MD-SP with the QD high rise mount.
But the battery life was only 5k hours.
I have three Aimpoints but I'm not going to spen that much on the other 8 ARs.
These new micro red dots with their 40k & 50k hour battery life is a must have for me.
And these sale prices make it a no brainer.

Snapped & edited a few pics yesterday.
Here's the 7.5" with its new Romeo 5 on a Kley-Zion QD 1/3 co-witness mount.

I'll tell you what, if people will just be patient with Sig and the P320 and their optics, they're going to start seriously carving out a loyal AND reliable spot in the market. Not enough to over-take Glock...which would take a cheaper magazine by either Sig themselves or Magpul or somebody similar but, they could probably easily unseat the M&P pistol And these "teething" issues with the P320, I think once those pass for good and the Army has them under their belt it'll be better as well. The only thing is, their Romeo 1 is light years behind Trijicon and Leupold in mini red-dots. Needs to be more rugged and those two buttons on the side protrude too far and are prone to be hit while in holster more often than an RMR. They can do it. They just need to work faster. LOL.
