New P320 RXP will shroud be too high?

I searched here and other places and found no answers. While I'm waiting to pick up my new P320 RXP Full Size I have a simple question. The Shroud for the R1P seems like a good idea. Will it raise the optic too much eliminating the usefulness of the supressor height iron sights?

The shroud adds maybe .3-5mm of height. Seriously, you won't even notice. I have on my my ROMEO1 (320 RX) and ROMEO1PRO (M17).

The shroud is terrible and useless. More obstruction for the eye, raises the dot so it will not co-wittness. The thing is just ill fitting and the metal surface slides around in-between dot and slide. I could not get my 320RX to zero and took shroud off, degreased and locktigthed it down properly. In the garbage it went and gun is now fine. Dot fits better, looks better and it's a myth that stuff flies against the dot from the front. Plus the shroud is also not good for racking as this can get the dot out of alignment too unless you torque it down so hard, you are going to strip the screws. Anyway, if ordering from the Pro shop tell them: Leave that stupid thing off and throw it in the garbage. The pro shop had shipped my gun with the should touching the dot on one side and hanging over on the other side, dot crooked too. I mean seriously....train your people and develop stuff that fits/works and looks good already.

I bought the shroud for my romeo1, mainly for added protection. Zero is still achievable in my case. I think it looks cool aesthetically, however when you look through red dot now light comes in between the red dot and the shroud creating a weird halo effect. Don't much like this. It is slightly distracting. Haven't been to the range yet verdict is still out on whether it affects shooting.

It functions perfectly fine. Does not affect co-witness whatsoever. Adds an extra layer of protection to the dot.

I think we're talking about different things. The Romeo 1 PRO comes with the shroud. The Romeo 1 does not. I never used the shroud when I had the Romeo 1 on my full size RX so I can't speak to that however, I've had a Romeo 1 PRO on my X Compact for a while WITH THE SHROUD and it works flawlessly. No issues whatsoever in keeping zero or with the sight picture. The bottom of the shroud adds about the same thickness as a couple pieces of paper. Nothing more. I've racked it off a table w/the optic more than once and it hasn't lost its zero.

Bottom line is that it's your gun/optic and you can do what you want but it's good protection assuming you actually have the Romeo 1 PRO (you said "R1P"). Again, I can't speak for the Romeo 1 (aka R1).

Agree.
Both of mine are flawless fit and function. Same on GF 365XL Zero

Hmm. I do like the idea of the protection and I do have the Pro. I was more concerned about the optic being too high rendering the sights useless. I hadn't considered the chance that it could lose zero but I do have the Pro and it sounds like less of an issue with the new version.

R1P comes with a shroud ONLY when you buy it separately, in a box. The R1P on RXP gun does NOT come with a shroud. Moreover, AFAIK, Sig does not sell the R1P's shroud separately. Correct me if I am wrong.

The shroud came with my separately purchased R1P.
Fits like a glove.
You forget it's there.
*Works perfectly with the SIG super tall sights.


*Unless you get all axle-wrapped with 1/3 co-witness or absolute co-witness or other jargonese thoughts.

It's the same shroud, for the Romeo1 and the Romeo 1 pro. Unless they came out with a new one that I haven't seen.

AFAIK, the Romeo1 shroud WON'T fit to Romeo1Pro (simply because the holes and footprint are different).

Sig's website only has one model that fits both. There are two sets of screw holes in the shroud.
