The Springfield Armory Range Officer is a 1911 pistol specifically designed to meet the needs of shooters who want to have a highly tuned, match-grade pistol that sheds many of the goodies found on the “Loaded'' models which increase the overall cost of production.

At first glance it may be difficult to see what the Range Officer lacks when compared to the Loaded 1911. Both have match-grade crossdrilled triggers, both have High Hand beavertail grip safeties. Both have a Delta-style skeletonized hammer and have a lowered and flared ejection port. Both have beveled mag wells. In fact, it would seem that the pistol has more in common with the Loaded lineup than with the G.I. or Mil-Spec series on 1911s.

The Range Officer does return to the G.I. style guide rod and plug, thus it does not need an allen wrench for disassembly. Instead of the night sights found on the Springfield Armory TRP it is equipped with fully adjustable target sights.

From slide/frame matchup to the tuned 5” match grade barrel the internals of the Range Officer are tuned to a high degree in line with both the Trophy Match and TRP. When all is said and done this is one 1911 pistol which is an out-of-the-gate competition gun with an affordable price tag.

Two 7 round magazines ship with the gun as well as a injection molded slide-style holster and double-mag holder and as with all Springfield Armory pistols, the Range Officer is built in either the company's Brazilian or U.S. production facility and comes with the company's Lifetime Warranty.
