Seems reasonably priced, at least for now. 

Unsure if the 1 of 500 really will make a difference in value or performance.

If you are going to shoot outdoor matches the gun may or may not be able to shoot groups at 50 yards good enough to be competitive. I would also like checkering or stippling on the front strap. Another concern is that they say the trigger pull weight is 3 pounds. I believe the minimum trigger pull weight for a 1911 in the .45 match is still 3.5 pounds minimum. The sights are a plus. The 1 of 500 thing doesn't make it collectable. It is just a sales technique to try to pump up the price. If you could (doubtful) get it close to the starting price, it would make a decent base gun to send to someone like Dave Salyer to accurize. Springfield Armory makes some very solid 1911's.

My husband recently bought a per-owned, but little shot by the looks of it, Range Officer.  The frame to slide fit is sloppier than my WWII Ithaca or my SA Mil Spec.  The price is right although it may easily need $1000-1500+ to get it to match condition.

If your Range Officer is sloppy loose, it is abnormal or shot a lot more than admitted I would say.  I would never buy a used one unless I could lay my hands on it or planned to completely rebuild anyway.

1 of 500 means absolutely nothing to any bullseye shooter I know, I think it was just a marketing ploy.  If one is patient, a RO can usually be had for $700-900.  Maybe good enough for a starter but needs probably 700-1000 of parts and labor to get it up to top notch.
