Springfield Armory Range Officer .45 ACP 5"Item #: F10417
Competitive pistol shooting can be an expensive endeavor. High-end guns account for the bulk of initial costs, which is a reason why many people do not get involved—despite their interest in the sport. Springfield Armory recognized that void in the market and created the Range Officer: a .45 ACP M1911 made with the same materials, fit and quality as its higher-end Tactical Response Pistol (TRP), but lacking some amenities found on the TRP and other, more expensive guns in Springfield’s line. The Range Officer (RO) is a pistol designed primarily for amateur competitors who want a reliable, well-fit base-model M1911, at a reasonable price, that is ready for competition.
