Default Springfield Range Officer Compact

Anyone know when the Springfield Range Officer Compact 45 will show up in local gun stores? I thought they were supposed to be out in July and now it is August and my LGSs can't get one yet.

Last I heard from Rob Leatham( Springfield rep and pro shooter) was not until late August....they first go to media( not me I can assure you. I can't get them to send me anything without a 6-12 month wait) and select vendors for in store demo units. I'm still waiting for an RO 9MM,...which should be at my FFL between now and NewYears,....
Edit: they are a great company with great products,..but like all good things, there is a wait involved when it's something new or your asking for a review item,...then again, I pay for what we test anyway....

My LGS says they are "allocated" to their supplier, but not yet available. I don't know what all that means, but I'd like to get my hands on one. In the meantime I'll have to get by with my XD and SIG. I'm just a little concerned about how much fun it will be to shoot the aluminum frame 45. And I'm assuming the 4" bull barrel will be much better than the 3" compacts. Anxiously waiting.

OK, it looks like they are our now (sort of).
Had one ordered at LGS #1 and they can't get one.
LGS #2 can get one, so I ordered one.
Should be next week. Can't wait.
I may sell my XD9 it this RO compact is as good as I'm thinking.

Finally got one. Only a couple mags through it so far, but it will be a keeper. Very tight. Shoots way better than me. The trigger has more travel than I like, but it may get better after a few hundred more rounds (or I may learn to like it). I'm headed to the range now.

the more you shoot it, the more you'll like it and the better it will get.

Jim, it means that the supplier has them on order, and your dealer gets what he ordered for his customers(You!) We're always glad for anyone who gets new stuff to play with. You will have to decide for yourself if the Aluminum frame is lights and you feel more recoil. I shot a LW Commander and A Steel Combat Commander when I was buying one (Colt) in 1980, and I went with the steel frame, but that was just me, YMMV,.....
I really want the 9MM one to see if it's actually better bet the Rock Island.
