For the second year in a row SIG Sauer wins the 2019 Golden Triggr Award for “Innovation in Optics”: in 2018 it took home the award for its Electro-Optic Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) fully integrated rangefinder and riflescope system. This year SIG's Romeo8H red dot sight was awarded the 2019 Golden Triggr Award at the recent TriggrCon Expo held July 24 – 27, 2019, in Bellevue, Washington. The Golden Triggr Awards recognize the latest in higher end, small arms innovations, showcasing the newest, most innovative companies and products in the tactical firearms industry.
SIG Sauer Romeo8H, “for unmatched situational awareness”
Recipients of the Golden Triggr Awards are evaluated on the following criteria:
- Concept and Design: innovation that addresses a need and becomes a basis for future innovation;
- Finish: quality of materials and manufacturing design
- End User: the innovation should provide a high value and benefit that exceeds the cost.
“SIG Sauer Electro-Optics is honored to be recognized for innovation in optics in this forum by our peers at TriggrCon with our Romeo8H red dot sight,” said Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “The Romeo8H is a ruggedized MIL-SPEC rectangular red dot sight designed to deliver an exceptionally wide field-of-view for unmatched situational awareness and target acquisition.”
We already talked about SIG's Romeo series on all4shooters. In short, the Romeo8H 1 x 38 mm is a full-sized red dot sight designed for modern sporting rifles (MSR) and shotguns. With a lightweight aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum housing, it features Quad Ballistic Circle Dot reticle with ballistic holds to withstand the most severe conditions: thanks to 4 different integrated reticle options (Dot, Circle-Dot, Dot with Holds, Circle-Dot with Holds), it is ideal for rapid target acquisition in any environment with an exceptionally large 38 mm field of view. The Romeo8H also features MOTAC (Motion Activated Illumination System) power management, a rectangular viewing window, and will maintain zero under the most hostile temperature differentials.
