Romeo1 Sight Problem

I just bought a new P320 Rx with the Romeo1 sight. While I can get the sight to turn on it has 4 issues: It only turn on by pressing the down button, it will not turn off when pressing either button, it will not turn off when left stationary for 5-10 minutes, and the brightness does not adjust. If anyone else has had similar issues I'd like to know. Either way I will be calling Sig so I will try to leave some feedback on the issue to help someone else in the future. Thanks.

I had that very same problem with a Vortex red dot and it was do to a almost dead battery. I changed the battery per the tech at Vortex and it functions properly now.

New here, have a number of Sigs I've been shooting for a few years. Just picked up the Mk25 RX and took it to the range. Weapon shoots beautifully and is dead on using the irons as I would expect. The Romeo 1 shuts off after a couple of rounds and I wasn't able to zero the sight as it would not respond in either elevation or windage. Called Sig, slide is in the mail to them tomorrow. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

Meaning the adjustment dials on the top and side didn't move the dot location at all? Very strange if so.

That's correct, dot never moved.

If the dot shuts off after a few rounds then you need to tighten down the battery cap. The supplied tool doesn't allow for enough torque. Use a real screw driver and tighten it another quarter turn. You need between 5 and 10 inch pounds of torque.

got my 226RX yesterday. went thru 2 batteries already. lasts about 1 hour and then dot dims and turns of. QC issues for sure, as it now has to go back to sig. not confidence inspiring in an otherwise excellent pistol.

Just purchased a P320 RX Compact yesterday and I have the exact same symptoms on the Romeo 1. Buttons don't work for brightness adjustment. It shuts down on its own. I replaced the battery with two different brand new ones and it stays on but no response from the UP or DOWN buttons.

I also noticed the Red Dot is quite distorted compared to say a Trijicon RMR, is that normal?

I am calling Customer Service tomorrow. I hope I don't have to return the whole firearm...

My Romeo1 seems to be working with one exception..

I turned the top adjustment CCW to bring the red dot up closer to the middle of the glass.. Prior to that, when I line up my Irons where the front sight fills the middle slot of the back sights and the top is perfectly flat, the red dot is exactly in the middle of the front sight.

After the 180 degree turn ccw, it is still in the exact same spot.. It did not move.

This is my first red dot sight of any kind.. How much do you have to turn the adjustment dial to see actual red dot movement.. I am thinking I didn't move it enough maybe or
do I have the same problem some are talking about above?
Just curious..

When I turn mine up to the highest brightnes it is distorted. Whne I turn it down it is sharp as a pin head.

My guess it is stuck on a very high brightness.

I have a new P320RX on which the Romeo 1 failed during the first trip to the range. Powered itself off, which I assumed was the battery, change it out and then couldn't turn it off or adjust intensity. Sig requested the entire pistol be sent in, it arrived at the Sig facility this morning for repair\replacement, haven't heard what they'll do yet. Too bad, it sure is a nice optic when it works.

My firearm and Romeo 1 are arriving back from the Sig factory tomorrow. Hopefully all fixed and problem free. I will update once I take it to the range.
