I saved up some cash to get a new Sig P320 RX at Bass Pro. Unfortunately when I got there they said it was on hold pending a background check. Bummer.
I negotiated a reduced price on the X-Carry since it came with with removable plate ready for the Romeo1.

The only place I could get a Romeo1 by the weekend (tomorrow) is Amazon. This is the version I purchased.

Will this mount without needing different screws?
Do I need any other tools than hex wrenches, blue Loctite and torque wrench?

Thanks in advance. - New Happy Sig Owner

You should be good...
Mine came with the longer screws needed to install on the X-carry...
The screws already had Loctite on them...
The Q&A on the Amazon says that it does too...
Be sure to use a torque wrench...
Over-tightening the screws can crack the glass...
The only thing you may not have expected is that you need to remove the extractor spring to get at one of the plate screws...
If you're not familiar with it consider looking up some videos...
I highly recommend Alma Cole's...

Thanks for the response, Uzi.
I did watch a YouTube how-to on the process. I saw the screws that came with the Romeo1 did have blue Loctite. However, I added a very thin coat of fresh blue Loctite, too.
The battery it came with was apparently dead. A replacement did the trick.

My only concern is it seems to be sighted high according to the iron sites. I adjusted down, but it still seems high.

I don't have a 9mm laser boresight to compare to. I guess it's range time.

Don't adjust the dot down without shooting it...
The stock front sight blade is too low for the Romeo 1 groove...
I use Dawson .250" x .100" fiber optic...
Use the green fiber optic inserts (You don't want to see 2 red dots)...
It will co-witness at the bottom of the sight window...
You may well be able to get a front blade from an X-5 owner...
The .250 front that comes on their guns (co-witness compromise) forces many to jack the rear blade way up...
So many replace it with a lower one...
You may be able to get one of their take offs...
