Recently was handed Down a SA 1911 A1. How can I tell if it is a mil-spec or a RO?
Do they make different A1 models?
Sights would be one way - most mil specs have the gi-type rear sight & the RO will have an adjustable rear sight.
Also the barrell bushing on the RO will be stainless (but if the mil spec is a stainless pistol - it's would be too).
Pics would help - but the best way is to call Springfield and give them the serial # - they can tell you all you want to know about it.
Yes, several models...
A couple of others too, I think.
Here is a pic. I believe it is the loaded?
Thx for the help as well. I am new to the forum!
No sir, the loaded mod had front serrations, night sights not adjustable sights like yours, ambidextrous safety,urs has right hand safety. So I believe whoever owned it did some adjustments like switch the safety, put on a skeletal hammer, and put on adjustable sights, because all range officers have front serrations also...I will look into it. Call springfield armory like he says, give them your serial number
Looks like a Range Officer to me.
I agree - looks like an RO...
It's a great gun & welcome to the forum!!!
It looks exactly like my Range Officer did, before I changed out the grips & mags.
Thing looks sweet. Love the grip!
