Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Don't tease us, where's the range report


Seriously though, nice buy. The finish on the Springers are just all business. Mean looking piece!

As per this on the Springfield Armory site:

New Range Officer

Notice the smaller photo in the upper right corner. Shows the weapon I have in my hot little hand including the ambidextrous thumb safety....

And the sights aren't fixed...

I've been looking for a good price on a RO for awhile....great 1911! I have two others, S&W1911PD and Kimber TEII, looking for a three-some. Both are the most accurate, easiest to shoot handguns in my considerable collection.

Very nice! I'm looking for the same thing but a Champion model.

I'm confused. Are we saying the gun is a Range Officer or a Loaded?

Unless someone has changed the sights, the photo posted here looks like a Loaded. A Range Officer will have adjustable target sights. The two photos above are combat sights, Novak-style. Those would not come on a Range Officer from the factory.

The OP is the lucky owner of a Loaded. I'm the lucky owner of a Range Officer, I think of them as Springfield's fraternal twins.

One sure way to tell the difference is that the RO doesn't have the front cocking serrations.

Here's my Range Officer:


The lack of FCS:
