How do you like the Romeo5 ?
Don't have a ton of time with it yet, but so far it's been excellent. Easy to adjust and spot-on. And the MOTAC feature works great.
You didn’t ask me but, I bought one last month from Palmetto State Armory for $119 and after @ 75 rounds it’s as clear as my H1 and works pretty darned well out at 50 yards. When the weather cooperates I’ll move back a bit.
I only wish that the mount was a QD but allegedly it works with any Aimpoint Micro mount. I may just spend tne $ on one from Midwest Industries.
I heard the Romeo5 is made by Holosun. Anyway they're well reviewed. I just ordered the Holosun HS503GU.
That Holosun specs a bit more like the Romeo 4 (I think?)
Working on a new pistol build. Here's the Ballistic Advantage 13.7" Hanson profile barrel.
Oh, that kind of pistol...
Looks interesting! Care to describe the other components you’re using?
I’m contemplating a 5.56 pistol myself. Right now I’m thinking 10.5” barrel with M-Lok rail upper from DSG and a second Romeo 5. I’m trying to decide between the Gearhead Tailhook and the SBa3 brace.
I started out thinking of going with a 10.5" then watched this video and did some more research and changed to a 12.5".
Then I purchased the Aero 12" Atlas S-ONE handguard only to find out that it is really 12.56". So I ended up with the 13.7" barrel which I am happy with. I like that it is the Hanson profile and has the pinned gas block . Here is my build.
Aeroprecision M4E1 stripped lower
BCM enhanced lower parts kit with the PNT trigger assembly and Mod3 grip
Aeroprecision M4E1 upper with 12" Altas S-ONE handguard combo set
13.7" BA Hanson performance series barrel with pinned low pro gas block and Melonite Gas Tube
Ballistic advantage phosphate bolt carrier group
SBA3 pistol brace
VG6 GAMMA 556 muzzle device
Magpul ASAP Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point
Magpul MS3 sling
Aeroprecision HK style folding sights
Holosun HS503GU optic
Looks like this now.
Thanks for the link to the video and your component list.
So far I’ve accumulated an Aero M4E1 lower, Aero LPK, and ALG ACT trigger. Thinking abour ordering the Gearhead brace, a QD endplate and a Magpul MOE grip tomorrow so I can start assembling the lower. Then I’ll study a bit on the upper.
I highly recommend the VG6 Gamma unless you're shooting in a lot of classes or busy ranges, in which case, you will piss off the guys next to you.
Thanks for posting that video Bro, I thoroughly enjoyed it and am now trying to talk myself out of a 12.5” 5.56 upper to share the pistol lower with my 10.5” 300BLK.
