Finally, a proper competitor to the Range Officer.  I just wonder if it will be any good...

Sadly I see it’s not MA compliant.  But neither are Colts, Springfield Armory, many Siggs, Les Bear etc.  hard to understand how a hundred plus years old military standard with 7 or 8 round capacity and multiple safeties  is not safe enough for citizens of the Commonwealth. 

I’m new to the Bullseye sport, but I’m finding that getting a quality 1911 where I live might be a problem.

It is not about safety and never was. In CA it's even worse.

One option for Bullseye shooters in these states is to obtain a C&R license and find a used Bullseye gun that is at least 50 years old. I was able to find a very nice Bob Chow gun for a decent price and another one which is built from a Colt Kit and has an extended Bomar rib and stippling very similar to Clark style. Both guns shoot much better than I ever will.

i saw the pistol,very nice,but i think springfiel is more pistol for the price. the price of this ruger $1000+ and the Springfield Range officer much less than this pistol.

Street price will be around 800 I bet once they get out there.

One on  Gun broker for 870 or so.

Ruger has been in the 1911 game for awhile. After reading a bunch of specs the only difference between the new Target model and the standard model 6700 is the adjustable rear sight (and grips). All of the internals appear exactly the same. The front sight is tall enough it would be easy to swap out the rear sight. And for the Mass. shooters the 6700 is on the allowed list. It looks like a great place to start and build from. Personal opinion YMMV.

Not the best rear sight in the world but should put you in the center of the black.

In the BTW category. There is a Target model listed now for 755.00 Smile

I don't think that is correct.

Caspian has a pretty serious quality control division and kicks back a good percentage of Pine Tree frames.  Great article on the process below.

On the last line...Ruger does not make all of Caspian;s parts, especially the small components that are not cast.
