Just looking to see someone has a nice used 1911 for use at local matches.  Pretty is not a necessity.  Just let me know whats available.  Thanks.

I highly recommend a new, or used Springfield Armory Range Officer. I just legged out with one I was borrowing and they need little to be usable to leg out with. To be competitive to win matches overall they probably ought to be rebarreled but a new bushing and slide stop pin will make it a very usable gun. Not overly expensive either.

What would be the advantage of replacing the slide stop pin ?
Thanks, Tom

Readers Digest version; New bushing will lower barrel 0.002-0.003” which slightly moves front of bottom barrel lug down. Slidestop will remove 0.004-0.005” of vertical barrel play at bottom lug. Goal is to get better lockup.
