320 RX slide wit a Romeo 1 help

Got a new slide for my 320 Compact, a 320 RX slide with a ROMEO 1.

I am trying to get the RDS signed up and I am having issues. The RDS will not go far enough left to align with the front sight. I have it a max left and still not centered. Elevation works and I can adjust the RDS pretty far right.

This its broken or defective? Want to they and solve before contacting the vendor for a replacement.

Have you tried a laser bore-sight? Do you have a rear sight?

You should not zero the red dot to align with the iron sights. It should be zeroed separately at the range, preferably with a rest and an experienced shooter.

If you look at your dot, it will move based up your eye position behind it. For me at least, this made it impossible to zero based on the iron sights. Plus you have the finer details of what the video speaks to. If I had to wager, your optic is fine and you just need to zero it differently.
ptco911 and Lab4Us like this.

Yes, watched that video setting up my M17. But I cant get the RDS centered over the front in general or bore sight aim.
Basically if I shoot, I cant get RDS more to the left.

Are you shooting left or right of target? How far and what range? Could you be moving the dot the wrong direction?

Trying to set up at 10 yds. It will to com over left to impact point. Its right of impact. Using a laser v boar and laser round.

I set my M17 ROMEOPRO1 like this and what easy and accurate.

Looks like this ROMEO won't adjust more left.

The dot is right of impact? Then you need to move the dial right, not left.

You want to move the dial direction of R on your optic. On my RMR that is counter clockwise. Is that maxed out. I get the feeling your moving it the wrong way.

I think your moving it the wrong way. Maybe your not explaining it well or I'm not understanding you.



Maybe someone who has the same optic can chime in. You want to move impact to the right, which on optics means turning the dial to the right, not left.


I know how to adjust. You can see it move. Did my M17/ROMEO1PRO easier.

I tried again with the laser bore and removed battery. Now seems just on the edge of impact. Again I cannot adjust it anymore to the LEFT towards impact. Its at the limit.

Did you use torque wrench to set screw torques correctly? You could have one side significantly lower (tighter) than the other. One manufacturer actually suggests you zero their RDS before mounting it (getting dot near center on glass). Donít remember which ones. I have two Romeo 1 and a Zero and all zeroed as expected. Used torque wrench to mount one of the R1s, other two came already installed.

Then again, itís always possible to get a defective unit ... of ANY brand.

From another post on here "Zeroing my Romeo 1 on X carry"
rcbrough quoted:

It is not normal. I have had to send back two Romeo1ís to the mother ship. With mine both would not adjust the windage far enough to the left to cowitness the irons. One brand new straight out of the box. The other after about 600 rounds. Call CS and they will walk you through the steps to send it back in for inspection and repair.

Hope this helps
