Range Officer

Post by Casey101 on 1/2/2014, 3:14 pm

First topic message reminder :

I'm thinking about getting into BE
Currently have a Browning Buckmaster with target bull barrel

I've been researching the Range Officer. Some of the posts I've read seem to indicate that the RO is not as good as it was when first introduced.
Why would the factory open up the tolerances?

How does the Trophy Match compare?

Also, why would you get the 9mm version?

Any recommendations?

Does SA have a kit for this that anybody knows of.
I think it would be neat to shoot 9mm for practice as it's cheaper then just switch it over to .45

Thanks,

Springfield just came out with a 9mm range officer, i havent seen one but they are getting good reviews.
Unfortunately it cannot be substituted for the 45 in bullseye.

It would be nice if SA make an kit to shoot both 45 & 9

I've applied for the handgun purchase permit. Now just have to wait to exercise my 2nd amendment right to arms.
I'm about 99% sure I'm going to go with the RO

Thanks for everyone's input. I'll still be monitoring as I have 1% flexibility  lol!

Just picked up my ro from the gun shop on my way home from work. Barrel fit and slide fit is tight. Trigger came in at just over 4.5 lbs. i eliminated the ils and put an 18 lb mainspring in. Hammer hooks got cut down to 18 thou and i polished the disconector and trigger bows. 4 lbs and crisp with no grit. Cant wait to shoot it

i'm concerned about the polishing and stoning to .018.
if I remember correctly the SA 1911's have mim parts which don't present a truly hard depth to play with.
