Generally speaking, the ROmeo 5 is a budget optic that assembles the low profile look of the Aimpoint Micro, but it's not built to the mil-spec qualities hardcore users are expecting.

What people love about it is its simplicity, functionality and price. Most people find the Romeo5 affordable to slap on all of their non primary / side project guns, and it performs very well for plinking.

This is a great option for beginners and airsoft trainers who want a real optic without spending over $130.
