Default New 1911

After 40 years of gun buying and trading I finally got my first 1911.
The Springfield Armory Range Officer.
I haven't got to shoot it yet but it sure is tighter than the others
I've handled in the past.

40 years and you're just now getting your first 1911?

Congrats on the purchase. I hear a lot of great things about the new Range Officer. Let us know how it shoots!

Nice looking Springer...hearing lots of good things about the RO. Good luck with it, please post a range report after you get her dirty.

When you get to fire it you're going to like it. I bought one last Friday, and it shoots great for an out of the box pistol. I shot it some just plinking Sat., so Sunday I set up my bench and put it on some bags. The first few where 2 inches low and about 5 o'clock. I adjusted the sights and ended up with one ragged hole about 2 inches wide at 25 yards. The pistol probably shoots better than my, soon to be 59 year old eyes (no glasses yet) can see. No maulfuctions or failure to feed using the factory clips or the one old shooting star I had either.

I predict you'll be getting rid of all your others after a range trip or two with this one.

Congratulations on your first 1911. Chances are that it won't be your last.

Sweet SARO. There ain't nothing not to like about it. Once you become one with the Zen of it, you'll wonder why you waited so long to get a 1911.
