The Federal Bureau of Investigation has selected the Sig Sauer ROMEO4M red dot sight for use on its agency-issued patrol rifles. Virginia-based Tidewater Tactical won the contract in a competitive bidding process and will start shipping these sights out to the FBI in 2017. More in the press release below:

“This is a great win for Tidewater Tactical, and SIG SAUER is proud to have the ROMEO4M as a part of their win,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO. “At SIG SAUER, we make our products to the highest standard because lives depend on it.”

The SIG SAUER ROMEO4M utilizes a proprietary ultra-efficient LED illumination system for superior daylight and nighttime visibility with extended run times.
