Springfield 1911 Range Officer Description:
We were surprised at the response when we introduced the 1911 Range Officer for the competitive shooter. Especially the precision features that made the Range Officer perform far beyond its price tag.
We insisted on the best components and manufacturing techniques, like forged national match frames and slides, both features found on our top end 1911 models. A gun is only as good as its barrel, so we didn’t skimp there either. We also added a national match stainless steel barrel and precisely fit bushing for maximum accuracy.
New for 2016 is the 1911 Range Officer model. We’ve kept the same great “under the hood” features that made the original Range Officer great. And we also added features to turn this pistol into a formidable self-defense pistol for carrying or home use.
The five-inch barrel with a fully supported ramp provides an extended sight radius, making your job of getting fast hits on target even easier. So, speaking of sights, the front is a shielded fiber optic tube while the rear is a low profile combat style that won’t snag during the draw.
There’s no reason a functional combat gun can’t look good. The 1911 Range Officer sports a Parkerized finish that looks sharp and will ward off corrosion and rust. Also, Checkered Cocobolo grips provide a firm hold without shredding carry holsters and clothes.
Serious 1911 fighting features are all there too. The classic flat mainspring housing is checkered for a positive grip, and the extended beavertail safety includes a memory bump for positive activation. Add a long aluminum match grade trigger, skeletonized hammer, and rail for light or laser and this pistol is good to go.
