Choosing a short-range sight has never been an easy task. You got options as reflex sight, red dot sight, holographic sight, night sights for pistols, etc.
To find the right sight for your gun, it has led you to this.
Holosun is a sight maker that does sound a lot like hollow and sun. But it has nothing to do with sun in case you are wondering. On the other end, we have Sig Sauer. A known brand in the industry that has been providing sights to hunter and security forces for a good while now.
What happens when you put two of their sights together? Chaos! That’s what happens. That’s right, I am talking about none other than Holosun 570k vs Romeo Zero.
A sight to behold (not sorry).

Holosun 570K: Used lenses here are fully multi-coated. That’s what we like to see. It’s also scratch resistant and features a glass etched reticle. Even if you drop the sight for a 1000th time, the reticle won’t move a millimeter from where it was. It’s also water proof and shock proof.
Romeo Zero: Despite having a polymer made housing, this sight features a great durable housing and lens combo. The lens here is also made out of polymer material that is used by Sig Sauer. Sig Sauer made excellent lenses with this material before. The same goes here as well. It’s clear, vivid, bright, and helpful in any weather.
Quality if the both sight at it’s best. you won’t be disappointed!
Holosun 570k: Holosun used 7075 T6 aluminum on this sight’s construction. This is the same material that you see on most med to high-end scopes and sights. It’s extremely durable and resistant to scratches. It is also shockproof and a great housing for the lens.
Romeo Zero: Romeo used Polymer to make the lens and the construction of this sight. I know what you are thinking. Plastic! You wouldn’t be too wrong to think that. But it’s not the same type of plastic you see on cheap toys and stuff. It’s durable and much more resistant to scratches and heavy weather. Yes, this sight is water and fog proof. It’s also compatible for desert or similar area.
If you want the most durable among the two, obvious choice is Holosun 570k.
Holosun 570k: 570k performs exactly like you were thinking. It’s a killing machine that can be effective from the moment you put it on top of a gun. The reticle is bright and is capable of doing night time shooting as well. Windage and elevation is quite easy to fix. The accuracy is scarily high of this sight.
Romeo Zero: Sig Sauer makes good sights. That’s a given. A good sight also stands for good performing sight. Which they also make. Romeo Zero is a prime example of that. An inexpensive reflex sight that performs on par with much more expensive and high-end reflex sights. Really impressed with how Sig managed to pull this off.
As performance of hs570k is beast here yet Sig Sauer Romeo zero will make you satisfy
Holosun 570k: The dimension of 570k is 1.6×0.98×0.95 in inches. When you think about it, it’s barely an inch wide. Making this a super choice for pistol or any rifles. The rail doesn’t really matter. You can mount it on almost anything you get your hands on.
Romeo Zero: Dimension of Romeo Zero isn’t actually zero. Well corny jokes aside, the dimension of Romeo is 1.6” in length 0.93” in height and 0.93” in width. Both height and width is almost same of this sight. Keep in mind there might be 1/2mm differences in height and width. But overall, it’s a smaller sight than Holosun.
The length of both are the same. Surprising I know. But they are the same. It’s up to you which one looks more appealing to you. As you cannot differentiate between the size.
Holosun 570k: The weight of 570k is only 1oz. Which translates to 28grams. That’s almost double the weight of Romeo Zero. If you put them both on a big gun, you won’t notice the difference that much. But on a small gun it’s noticeable.
